CASE Study Butterflies



The moment I saw this week’s CASE study, I knew I wanted to create a card with butterflies.  I also had to resist the urge to buy a new set of butterfly stamps just for the occasion!  My stamp collection seems to be severely lacking in the butterfly department!  Years ago I picked up a paper packet at Hobby Lobby with a butterfly theme.  BINGO, great butterflies do exist in my stash!  Here is the card inspiration from CASE Study-

 
This card was created by Agnieszka Malyszek. I loved the butterflies, woodgrain texture, the lace, tag embellishment, well....all of it!  I captured many of the elements in my card.


I added butteflies, lace, and the woodgrain texture to my tag.


I used a variety of supplies:

 Z1686 Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge
D1477 Universal Backgrounds
Inspiration Paper Packet-The Paper Studio
X5643 Chocolate Cardstock-CTMH
1388 Colonial White Cardstock-CTMH
Z2111 Chocolate Ink-CTMH
Z2211 Chocolate Reinker-CTMH
Antique Linen Distress Stain-Ranger
Old Paper Distress Stain-Ranger
Z1732 Seam Binding Ribbon-CTMH
Lace Trim-Reasonable Ribbon

Design Tips- I colored my seam binding ribbon with chocolate reinker.  I colored my lace trim with a combination of Antique Linen and Old Paper Distressing Ink. I cut the tag shape with the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge and then stamped with the woodgrain background.

I have also entered this card in the following challenges:
