More Apertures.

Time to show you two more Aperture cards for the current Butterfly Challenge #117.

My first card shows Almond/Apple Green/ Amber/Anything/ Aperture/ Butterfly.
My anything goes choice is to use ribbon for the bow embellishment.
You will now find an extra tab on the Butterfly Blog  under the Banner heading which says Card Shapes. On this tab you will see I have added details/hints/tips on how to make 3 very simple aperture cards using an existing blank card.
Here you will see that I have cut the aperture using my Sizzix scalloped circles. I then used a Spellbinders Butterflies Circles diet set to cut the large circle of butterflies in the green card stock. I cut a matching scalloped circle in the centre and positioned this over the aperture already cut in the blank card base. I recut the butterfly die using cream and amber cardstock in order to get the coloured inlays. I cut a further scalloped circle and adhered a butterfly sticker to it and then used DS tape to attach to the inside of the card so that it would show through the aperture when the card was closed. I added a simple ribbon bow to the front of the  Card. The sentiment is by  Julie Hickey Designs.

Through The Craftroom Door # Anything goes.

 Second card shows Almond.Apple green/ Aperture/Butterfly.
This is the card I have shown under the Card Shapes tab Version II of the Aperture cards instructions.  I used  Spellbinders Deckled Rectangles Large to cut the aperture. The sentiment is a die cut by Xcut 'Best wishes'. The ribbon roses, bow and butterfly stickers were from my stash and addedon below to finish the card.
