As soon as I saw the sketch I knew exactly what I wanted to recreate- modelled on a swap I did for Convention a few years ago - and since I am preparing for two coming craft fair markets it will go into my stash of square cards with coordinating envelopes (love my Envelope Punch Board) - sort of becoming my craft fair signature item.
While not quick to create, this design is a great way to use up scraps- which is good if you struggle to throw out all your leftovers. The layers of different embossing folders and the random width of the strips is completely arbitrary so every card will look different. You can lightly sponge the surface, like I have done here, or leave it plain. I have used Rose Red DSP and Kraft Cardstock and some of the new fine Gold Cord which is wonderful.
The little circle of gold foil behind the butterfly caught the light in the photo but it's relatively subtle in reality. The little butterfly from Papillon Potpourri is heat embossed in Early Espresso and coloured with the blender pen.
And the inside and envelope -
Here's the link to my convention swap from 2014.....CASEing myself!!!haha
