Vintage Butterfly

I had a play with the delish With Love paper pad from Noor Design, the colours are so soft and dreamy and perfect for vintage themed cards

I gave one of the resin frames a coat of gesso, backed it with a small piece of paper from the pad and popped a glass button in the centre.

The butterfly is a Noor die, and behind it I stencilled a butterfly design with some texture paste and glitter

Loaded with Wild Orchid Crafts flowers which I blinged up with some white glitter.

A sort of peek at the inside

Last one before the product deets – the butterfly die really does pop off the front of the card.

A little bit of drama

Happy New Year!  I hope 2016 is going to be an exceptional one for us all.
Today’s card is all about the drama, and nothing shouts drama than black (a colour I am terrified of ha!).  I had a bit of a sort through my paper stash several weeks back so my grandkids could have some stuff for play group and also beavers.  They went away happy kiddoes.  Anyhow, whilst I was sorting I found a box of Prima pads that had never seen the light of day and this one jumped out at me, so in between sorting out I whipped up this card.
bev-rochester-woc-prima-332015-1

I love this metal clock, it’s part of a set of charms from Wild Orchid Crafts.
bev-rochester-woc-prima-332015-3

I cut out some of the clocks from the papers and popped them in the bottom right corner, and also broke up the black a bit by adding a die cut butterfly (Cheery Lynn I think).  And just peeking out beneath the flowers are a couple of gold metal flowers.  Love these.
bev-rochester-woc-prima-332015-2

And of course finished off with some delish Wild Orchid Crafts flowers and a seam binding bow (product details at the end of the post).  The leaves are a Memory Box branch die, and the doily die is by Crafters Companion.
