Does this look familiar? If you know my work, you'll recognise it immediately! One of my earlier projects on this blog was a Glittering Butterfly Card with a Ginormous bow. The feedback was a shade mixed - some thought it was grand and stylish and loved the bow. Others weren't too kicked about the colours, the bow being so big and the gold was bordering on harsh. So when I was asked to recreate this for someone, it was mildly suggested that I tone it down a bit - replace the gold with red, reduce the size of the butterflies and replace the bow with something less dominating. So here's my creation!
I replaced replaced the bow with a rim of red roses from ItsyBitsy. Love them, can't go wrong with them. I also made the butterflies smaller as you can see. The rest I kept the same. The base layer is white card stock, followed by another layer of card stock and the top layer is vellum embossed with a floral design.
But here's something new to share! How do you like my coordinating box envelope? The flap has the same butterfly design in the same rich red all cut from my cameo! Isn't it awesome! I've made it before for other butterfly cards but just realised that I have never shared it on my blog.
So what do you think of my card as compared to the previous one? Is this better or do you prefer the gold one? Would love to hear your thoughts!
DCAM Challenge 3 - I've chosen the red and white colour scheme.
