Hinged Cards.

Time for a new challenge over on the Butterfly blog. The theme this time is

#124 Spin The Butterfly Wheel with H for Hinged Card.
The challenge is back to its normal two weeks.

 You will find the instructions and tutorials over on the Butterfly blog under the tab called card shapes. Click on the card name to be taken straight to the tutorial.
You will need a fancy filigree style die to make this card but it is still a simple card shape to make and the results are very stylish.
I have also included instructions for making a simple Hexagon shaped card using a die and A4 size design paper using the hinged method. 

Here is my first inpsiration card for you.

Using  Hinged card/Hot Pink/Hunters Green/Butterfly.
 I have used spellbinders Romantic Rectangle die and a design paper from The Works to make the shape. (The Paper is double sided so I only needed to cut one extra to cover the join. )
I fussy cut some of the roses and tiny blue flower from some of the leftover paper and adhered to the front of the card using 3d pads to give dimension..
 I used stickles silver glue to give sparkle to the centres of the roses.  Butterfly is an SU Punch. The sentiment is from a stamp set by Kaisercraft called Birthday wishes. Below you can see the card opened up.

My second card for you is showing another hinged style using Spellbinders Marvellous Squares.

Using  Hinged card/Hot Pink/Heat Embossed/Butterfly.

I have used hot pink design paper for the front of the card and heat embossed the butterfly and sentiment using Wow Silver Metallic embossing powder. Butterfly is a freebie from Paper Crafter magazine along with the sentiment on the inside of the card. The best wishes sentiment is by Kaisercraft.

Design paper used on the inside is LOTV Nitwit collections Pastel Dreams paper pad.

Last card uses a Hexagon die which I have used to make a hinged card.  You will find the instructions over on the Butterfly blog under the tab called card shapes.

Using  Hinged card/Hot Pink/Hunters Green/Hexagons/Butterfly.
 Hexagon die is by Julie Hickey called 'Layers,Frames & Banners Hexagon'. Design papers are from The Works. Sentiment is by Kaisercraft 'Birthday Wishes'. Butterfly from my stash.

Hope I have given you some food for thought and that you will come and have a spin of the wheel.

Lovely cards. I have that first die as well as the Hexagon ones. I think I'll use the hexagon die for my card though as that ticks one item off straight away. Unless I get the energy and enthusiasm to create a couple of cards so I can try both dies.
