Batenburg lace and butterfly
I am so excited about a new die cut that I got. It is called Creatables and it is a UK company www.mariannedesign.nl that produces it. Stampers in Victoria, B.C. Canada carries them.
I will probably post several variations of the batenburg lace and butterfly in different cards for the next few posts. lol There is also a little flower that came with the batenburg lace and it cuts so nicely in velum. So be pre-warned. lol
I decided that the card I wanted to make would have several different textures.
I had some grey shiny textured homemade paper (not by me) which became the base of my card. Next came another textured layer. The battenburg lace was cut from another textured piece of the homemade paper. The pattern was a little different. Then came the gorgeous butterfly and it was a shiny smooth silver cardstock.
The lace along the edge is a metallic lace from my stash around the house that never got onto anything. After I took the picture the lace kept falling off so I just added a heart shaped brad to the top and bottom. Added a liner in the envelope from the textured base paper.
So that's it for me.
Have a Blessed day.
