butterfly card - Kianel

Hello dear Cheery Lynn Designs lovers!
Kianel here with you today presenting a butterfly card that i decided to make using orange and brown colors for a change.

 The base of the card is made using the XL oval stackers (size 6) combined with the Large silver oval stacker to cut the printed paper out. The inside frame is made using the size 3 of the same dies. On the right side you can also see a piece of the tropical flourish die.Under the lace is a ribbon eyelet border with piercing that i cut in half. All around the base i have placed the Queen Anne's lace border that is so alike lace!!! I loooove it! You can also see that i have used the leaves from 2 different sets that i inked with distress to enhance the embossed parts, dimensional large leaves set #2 and dimensional small leaves set #2.
On that card you will also find another way of making a flower using the frangipani with leaves die. This one is made of separate petals so it's even easier to build your own flowers using the same technique as the one i explained last week, but this time you'll need a small circle to glue your first level of petals on. To finish the flower i added a bunch of stamens and voilĂ !
 The small flowers i made using a little brown rose and the miniature rose die that i inked with distress. There i also added a piece of the tropical flourish die.
I used the exotic butterfly medium #2 to give wings to my stamped image and coloured it with shimmer paint. The stamp is a Sugar Nellie, the papers are from Echo Park, the colouring is made using distress inks, the shimmer is given by the creative Inspirations paints.
