hey lady, wouldja make a *CARD* already?!

here ya go:

(patterned paper: basic grey, bo bunny, doodlebug; glossy black cardstock: ranger; butterfly dies: quickutz; gem flourish: prima; labels: dymo; ink: colorbox; adhesives: tombow mono runner, 3m foam tape, sewing machine)

it's a challenge card, even! for kazan's sketch 43 at 2S4Y. i am submitting it on the final day, naturally. 'cause that's the way i roll. (by which i mean slowly...and at the very last minute!)

i used my brand new two-part quickutz butterfly die (my december VIP coupon purchase from cut at home--many thanks to dearest june for the emergency compatibility info!) i cut two layers of the body and one of the outline and then machine stitched them all together and attached the "compound butterfly" to the card with foam tape. i love how much dimension it has!

next time i think i will try adding even more layers and see what that does to the dimesional profile.


by the way, it's saturday...

the new prompt is up at tyggereye art...

do *YOU*
HEART the ART??!


  1. Wow! The die arrived already AND you used it!!! It is fantastic; I was *shocked* that you chose pink for your butterfly ;) I am a little envious of the sewing on your cards. That is a technique I have loved for years (Tracy does it a lot and even on her scrapbook pages.) But, I don't have a sewing machine and I'm quite sure I do not remember how to thread the bobbin and all that stuff.

    Good luck @ 2S4Y, not that you need it!

  2. I love this!! So very Lauren and gorgeous!! Love popup cut out of this is so crisp! Lovely!!! I just posted this weeks prompt. Can't wait to see what you do.


  3. that butterfly is one gorgeous creature. So delicate.
    I roll that way too :)

  4. Oh so pretty! LOVE that butterfly! Great texture! :) Kathy

  5. Oh sista...I roll the same way..LOL...I adore your butterfly card and all the delish bling-age.
