Here are two cards to help get you inspired with Paper Piercing and the colour Fern which is green.
For this one I have cut an aperture from a blank card using a First Edition Stamp die and then paper pierced around the edge of the frame. I used green embroidery thread to make the lattice work through the holes made. The paper behind the lattice is a Digi design by Raspberry Road called Botanical Bliss. I used the cut out from the frame to die cut the butterflies which are by Memory Box 'Cascadia butterfly trio'. I have pierced around the shape of each of the butterflies to further enhance.
The sentiment is by Britannia Dies.
Entering into the following challenges:
On my second card I have used the negative of the butterflies and sentiment that I cut from the framework inset. (Waste not want not is my motto!!) The design paper is by Prima from their Botanical Collection. Here I have paper pierced around the edge of the darker peach backing card and also around the inside edge of the paler peach inset. Base card is made form green card stock.
Pink ribbon trim from my stash. I hope I have shown you that you don't need to invest in paper piercing templates or patterns. I simply used a ruler, a stick pin and an old sponge mouse pad.
