Here are two more cards to give you some inspiration for the current Butterfly Challenge which you still have time to enter. as the closing date is Tuesday 8pm (GMT).
These two cards are trying out some more card shapes that I have found on You Tube. For my sins I have signed up to do a Craft Fayre in December at out local community hall so whilst I do have plenty of cards already made I thought I would have a go at these ones too.
The first card is a Z Fold Flap Card. I followed this tutorial here by Dawn for the main measurements changing how I made the closure tab slightly.
The papers are by Lili of the Valley Nitwit Collections ' Snow Princess'. This paper pad has some lovely designs in it and was given to me by my fab Daughter to use up. The stamped image on the front is by Imagination Crafts from The Decoupage Stamp Range Called ' Butterfly'. I have silver embossed and then used my Marvy Leplume II water colour pens straight to the paper to fill in the butterflies wings and the trailing flowers.
The second card is a Pop - Up card. I followed the tutorial here by Jolan giving it my own personal twist on the design elements. The tutorial is spoken in Dutch but the measurements come up on the screen and the visuals are very easy to follow and I had no problems with keeping up.
I will let the following pictures show you how the mechanism unfolds.
I used lots of scraps of white paper for the flowers so I'm speeding over to the playground and nipping in before the gates shut for the night.
