BUTTERFLIES BUTTERFLIES BUTTERLIES

 

I MADE THIS CARD FOR MY MAM FOR MOTHERS DAY AND SHE LOVED IT. SHE WANTED IT TO BE ON SHOW ALL THE TIME SO I GOT A GRAPHIC 45 8X8 KRAFTBOARD ALTERED MATCHBOOK BOX AND DISTRESS IT AND MADE IT TO MATCH THE CARD.

I USED PAPER FROM "GLITTER BOHEMIAN PAD" 8X8 PAPER PAD AND THE FLOWERS ARE MADE FROM THE SAME RANGE, ALL FROM CRAFTWORK CARDS. I LOVE THIS COLLECTION.

 
I CUT THE PAPER TO FIT THE BOX, I DISTRESS IT, ADDED SOME KANBAN BUTTERFLIES, BUTTONS, LACE, BRADS, WATCH AND HAT PINS.
 
 
THE BUTTONS I GOT IN A SALE AND THEY WORK OUT AT 8P EACH AND ARE 20MM IN SIZE. THE LACE WAS £3 FOR A 5METER ROLL AND COMES WITH DOUBLE SIDED TAPE ON IT.
 
LOVE THESE BUTTERFLIES FROM KANBAN AND GOT THEM IN THE SALE
 
LOVE THESE WATCH PIECES FROM DOCRAFTS
 
 
HAD TO COVER THE BACK IN THE SAME PAPER
 
 
AND COVER ALL THE SIDES, I ADDED SOME FAB CANDI ALSO FROM CRAFTWORK CARDS.
 
 
AND OF COURSE I HAD TO COVER THE INSIDE AS WELL.
 
 
THIS IS THE CARD I MADE.
 
 
LOTS OF YUMMY FLOWERS THAT I MADE AND SOME MORE OF THE GORGEOUS BUTTERFLIES
 
 
I ADDEDD SOME LOVELY LACE AND RIBBON THAT REALLY WORKED WELL WITH THE PAPERS AND FLOWERS
 
 
I LOVE MY MAM
 
 
I HOPE YOU ENJOY YOUR VISIT TO MY BLOG TODAY. I KNOW I DON'T GET TO BLOG A LOT NOW BUT HOPE TO BE BACK IN BLOGLAND SOON.

LOVE AND HUGS
