This is a card that I made for a swap back in June. The swap was for 2 cards to be made that were white on white any design. They have been received by my partner in Australia now so this is the first one that I made. Looking through my card blanks I spotted this shape and thought it would work quite well with my X Cut 'Square Parenthesis' die.
I had the idea to make a grid design so used my Scor Pal to mark out the design on the card front and then onto the die cut. I matched the pattern up but forgot to put a pencil mark on the die cut as to which way was up. Believe me it took me ages to work it out and line it back up. I raised it on foam pads for a slight 3D effect. The butterfly was cut using Cheery Lynns Small exotic butterflies #2 DL 113AB. Again you learn by trial and error. The white card stock was quite a thick one and didn't turn out very easily from the die. I have since used wax paper on die cuts and it works a treat. It was very fiddly poking all the small pieces out of the butterfly. The word die is by Britannia . I used some small pearls from my stash which had been a freebie in a magazine. No bows or ribbon as I liked the classic lines and simple CAS style.
