Envision those pretty French soaps and dainty tea packages. Companies spend a great deal of time and money creating packaging and labels for their products; after all, it is often what draws you to the item.
In an effort to spare these beautful butterflies from the blade of a paper cutter, I created one super-sized card.
This card measures 8 1/2" x 5 1/4". It is a full sheet of banana cardstock folded in half.
All but two butterflies weren't included in the original paper layer. They were instead, cut seperately and reattach the to the card in strategic places (the top left and far right of the card). The wings were curled to give it more of a 3D effect. The smallest butterfly was lifted with a dimensional.
There are 48 patterns in the Sweet Pea DSP. I'll be going through the rest of the pack trying to save the remaining butterflies and dainty flowers. Afterwards, I'll move on to those fun geometric shapes for a different kind of project.
In the meantime, here's a little sneak peek of what's in store for the Februray issue of Paper Crafters Sampler.
I hope your day is filled with sunshine and inspiration.
