My Internet connection had not improved.
In fact is is rapidly disintegrating to morse code!
Further hampered by the fact that the help centre is in India.
I will say no more.
Have Been trying to post this since Wednesday.
Have finally managed to load the photos this morning
But now lost my connection so battling with
Predictive text on my iPad to finish.
It is week two of my Butterfly Challenge.
I have chosen another new card shape
Block Step Card
to showcase the theme
Butterlies + C is for Corners.
I found lots of tutorials on YouTube for this card
all using the same method and instructions so
have not used a specific one to make mine as they
are all equally as good as each other.
You only need a piece of card 4.5 inches x 12 inches
and another piece 4 .5 inches x 1 inch to make the base card
so is very economical plus folds flat for sending.
Again the most time consuming part was to cut the squares
from design papers to layer up with. ( 15 squares needed)
I wanted to have a spring look to the card so raided
my yellow snippets stash of papers and sorted out
embellishments to compliment.
The embroidered roses
( front /back of card is made the same)
have been hoarded for at least 35 yrs and
The lace 25 yrs so well past their sell by date!
I used my Sizzix corner die Architectural Accent # 4
to make the corners from a scrap of same yellow card.
Sentiment is a magazine freebie and my butterflies are
Die cut using Memory box
Card is totally free standing .
Another view showing the other side .
Butterflies were adhered with 3D pads
to give definition.
