The Card Concept #119- Beautiful Butterflies

Welcome back after a long summer break and I'm so happy that it's time for another The Card Concept challenge! If you need a reminder about what this fun challenge is all about, I have copied and pasted the description from the main challenge blog below. 

This is a bi-weekly card challenge blog which features an inspiration photo for participants to use for their card design.

 Each member of our Design Team will choose one (or more) of the 7 different styles for their card design and each designer will share with us the inspiration for their style choice of the design.

The styles are divided into 7 style themes:
  • Clean & Simple (CAS)
  • Clean & Layered
  • Clean & Graphic
  • Freestyle Collage
  • Shabby Chic
  • Classy & Elegant
  • Mixed Media 

The participants are encouraged to create a card, based on the challenge and they can choose whatever "style" or combination of "styles"  to design in.
Each designer on our DT will choose their top three entries and the entries will be compiled by the team administrator to determine the main winner and the three honourable mentions.  The Winner and HM will be announced an hour before the next challenge starts. 

Sounds like fun, right? I created my card based on the inspiration photo below. Butterflies are my favourite (next to rainbows and unicorns!), so I was excited to create with this photo in mind.

Clean and Layered was the style I chose for this card and I took the inspiration photo rather literally, keeping the layout and patterned butterflies as the basis for my design. 

On a cream coloured A2 card base I stamped the butterflies and coordinating layers, then added some ink drops flicked across the panel. The sentiment was heat embossed in white and adhered using foam tape. A few sequins were added to finish it off. 

Head on over to The Card Concept blog to see how the rest of the team was inspired and what styles they used on their cards. Play along with us using any of the styles we highlight...I can't wait to see what you come up with!
