Have you ever seen a butterfly on a snowy day? I've not, but if our strange weather patterns continue, it may well start to happen. Yesterday we woke to frost, yet in the afternoon there was a butterfly in the garden.
For this card. I made a watercolour background and then overstamped it with the snowflake (a very old Hero Arts stamp) in the same colours. Then I stamped the snowflake again in silver over everything else and embossed it with silver embossing powder although having to take the photo in electric light has made it look more brown than silver.
The sentiment was a free gift with an order, but I can't remember whether it was from Paper Artsy or Crafty Individuals. I added silver matting and a die cut butterfly, using the Memory Box butterfly die I won in Liz (Crafty Sunflower)'s recent blog candy.
I think this would work well as either a Christmas card or a winter birthday card.
I'm sharing this with
Rubber Dance - Purple, Pink, Turquoise and a very happy birthday to Bibi!
Butterfly Challenge - Quote and/or Quicksilver
Cuttlebugmania - Tic Tac Toe - I chose embossing/die cuts/purple
