Never Tire of Butterflies!

Hello friends
It was my turn recently to create three projects for the Spellbinders Featured Tutorials section
and you can imagine how thrilled I was when they asked me to use 
Butterfly Corner - right up my street!
The idea of the tutorials is to have three project levels - easy, intermediate and advanced.
Today I'm going to share with you the 'easy' project.
A kraft card base with cream cardstock embossed only with the corner die.
Cut/embossed and stencilled butterfly, stamped sentiment and twine. Now that's easy.
You can view and download the full instructions here.
I think this could work in many different colour combinations, perhaps an idea for invitations.
I will be back soon with the other projects.
Hope you are all enjoying the weekend, fingers crossed we get sunshine and not
typical Bank Holiday weather!
Take care friends.

Hi Christine

Lovely card today, very classy! I've been making cards just recently using Kraft card, makes a nice change. I really like the way you have used the corner die, I think I may have to start using this technique, so effective.
Off to have a look at your other projects.
Another sunny day here, hope you have the same. Enjoy your weekend.
