Butterfly Gate Fold Card

This card opens in the middle and has 2 wings.
It was made using mostly pastel colors.
I used lavender pearly canvas-textured CS for the card, light blue leather-textured CS, plain cream CS and a patterned paper from my stash.
I stamped Michael Strong's Cloisonné Butterfly stamp on black textured CS (for contrast), then heat embossed it with mixed EP and decorated it with clear blings.
I used SN scalloped squares so that the outer piece exactly overlaps the inner one.
The butterflies inside were cut using EK Success whale of a punch, and the borders were cut using EK Success Parisian edger punch.
I left enough space inside for writing a personal text.
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed. Have a creative day! Dorly

    Beautiful Card Dorly. That butterfly is one of the first of Michael's stamps I got and is still one of my favorites.

    מהמם!!יש לך עבודות יפפיות!!
    האם את רואה את התגובה?

  9. כרטיס נפלא ומושקע, כרגיל. הצבעים משתלבים יפה מאד וחבל שלא רואים את יופייה האמיתי של אבקת האמבוסינג הצבעונית.
    הפאנלים הפנימיים עם פאנץ' הבורדר מוסיפים הרבה לחלקו הפנימי של הכרטיס.
    על החותמות של מייקל סטרונג בכלל אין צורך להוסיף...

  10. כרטיס מקסים ומלא אווירה! והבחירה בקארדסטוק עם טקסטורה של קנווס נהדרת!
