Flutterby Butterfly

Chris (sis-in-law) came over yesterday for our weekly crafting get-together and we made 3 projects which I will show you over the next few days.
My favourite was this little butterfly, which was inspired by one that I saw on my SU Mummy Julie's blog

The butterflies are cut using the Beautiful Butterflies Bigz Die (which is exclusive to Stampin Up) and we ran them through the Elegant Bouquet Textured impressions Embossing folder (another SU exclusive).
Basic Pearls were used for the head and thorax and flower stamens were used as antennae.
I am very pleased with the results.

This is my butterfly

(I have entered this in the Cards Galore Butterflies challenge

This was Christine's butterfly

Chris has posted on her blog today - the first time for a long time - maybe you could pop along and visit her blog here

  1. Oh wow! These are just gorgeous and such a clever idea, the embossing is a really nice touch too
