Quartz colour definition:
Quartz can be colourless, white, purple, pink, brown, black, also gray, green, orange, yellow , blue and red. Sometimes multi coloured or banded.
I have two cards today to show as my inspiration for you.
Card No 1 using the Joy fold shape and the colour of Blue quartz and Colourless quartz on the butterfly's wings.
The sentiment has been die cut twice and layered up using a die cut by Presscut from Crafts- Too. The flowers ribbon and hessian butterflies are from my stash. I used 'Splitcoaststampers' excellent tutorial for making the card shape up.
On the inside of the card I added an additional pocket and pull out tag which can have an extra personal message added for the recipient.

Card No 2 uses a Brand new 'Rounded Strip Die Set 'from Tonic Studios and I have loosely taken the picture on the outside of the packet as inspiration for the card shape below. Again I have used Lili of the Valley's Nitwit collection paper pad. This one is called 'Snow Princess'. I have gone with the Quartz colour of Purple and Colourless quartz on the butterfly using parchment paper for the top layer and sparkle glue. The sentiment is a die cut by Cheery Lynn Designs. The ribbon and sequins from my stash.
