Bohemian Butterfly Card (with gilded butterflies)


A few weeks ago, I won some Trimcraft Bohemian collection goodies.  It is such a pretty collection, with butterflies, birds, flowers and stags and a lovely colour palette too.

One of my favourite items in the collection are the wooden shapes. I chose to use butterfly shapes for this card. Although the shapes look great left as they are, I wanted this card to have a special feel, so chose to use gilding flakes to decorate them. I found that the adhesive on the back of the shapes was ideal for attaching the gilding flakes.
 
I also took the chance to use my Spectrum Noir pens on this card, stamping both the stag image and some small butterflies around it.
 
Full instructions for this card are available on my Trimcraft gallery.
