Pop-up Butterflies

It's spring break here, so I'm a little slow on the posting. I do have tons of cards to share, just have a hard time finding the time to write the posts, with all the cleaning and being outside that seem to occupy my time lately. It's beautiful here in Croatia. My cherry and apple trees are in bloom. My bulbs have popped out from the once frozen grounds. I love it!

I have two cards to show you today that also use up scraps and die cuts. I think these are some of my favorites so far. I have a thing for butterflies and these Spellbinders Wonderful Wings dies are beautiful. The sentiments are from The Craft's Meow's Just Sayin' set.

The papers are My Mind's Eye. I cut strips, glued them randomly (I love that since they came from the same collection, they are already coordinated for me), then die cut them. You can view my older Dehoarding posts using the same technique.

You can see more dimension here of the butterfly. I love that pop of red peeking through.

Excuse my "distressed" stitching. I'm still a novice when it comes to sewing, so I think my needle needed replacing when I did this.

Twine, button and lace are the embellishments I used on these cards.

I hope I inspired you to use up your scraps. Please share in the comments below if you made something like this. I'm entering this to Moxie Fab's Scraps Challenge. Have a great day!

  3. Fabulous use of paper and dies!! I suspect the stitching glitches are more due to tension issues, or moving over different layers.
