I have been using my Elegant Butterfly Punch lots, as you may have noticed! Butterflies are bang on trend and never seem to go out of favour; they are always a popular choice for birthday cards and wedding stationery.
Here is the card I gave Jane for her birthday back on Sunday:
I've punched out a butterfly in the wonderful Silver Glimmer Paper that Stampin' Up! offer (available also in red) which I have mounted on a piece of Elegant Eggplant that I have cut out using the Blossom Punch. I've attached them using an Antique Brad.
The background is a piece of First Edition Designer Series Paper, I daubed around the edge with some Soft Suede ink to give it a distressed look. The pattern you can see stamped is in Early Espresso (as is the sentiment in the corner) and is from the Daydream Medallions set that you saw me using earlier in the week.
For the inside of the card I used a Silver Dazzle Marker, which I have to say writes absolutely beautifully, and I would definitely recommend:
These markers are also available in Gold and cost £3.25 - they are perfect for Christmas cards and for jazzing up any card that does not have a white insert to write on. You can order any of the products I have shown here, please get in touch!
