Buttonfly? Well, it's like a butterfly, only with added buttons (makes me think of the bread-and-butterfly out of Through the Looking Glass).
The current challenge at Butterfly Challenge is to use three patterned papers with a butterfly. I had a rummage through my bits box and came up with three small pieces of pretty paper left over from a recent make for CD Sundays - they came from a Create & craft Club freebie CD. I couldn't think how to use them though, so Pinterest came to the rescue - I put "card sketches" into the search box and loads of great ideas came up - so many that I started a sketches board of my own. Which means I have no excuse for running out of ideas any time soon!
This card is based on one of the sketches I found. I've embossed the larger white panel with a Crafters Companion folder, and stamped and embossed the greeting on the smaller one. The butterfly is cut with a rather old die, from the days before pokey holes for removing the diecut were invented. So I tried the cutting-with-waxed-paper trick that I've been meaning to try for years, and the butterfly just popped out beautifully. Definitely something that will become standard procedure!
I added the buttons simply because the nonsense word "buttonfly" popped into my head and wouldn't let go, otherwise I was planning to use pink pearls to decorate the body!
Because all the patterned papers were from my bits box, I'm also popping over to play at the Snippets Playground.
