August Project

I’m back with a project to kick off the month of August.

After much whirlwind activity surrounding and at Convention, I sat down and finally created a card for which I have had ideas about for some time. It took Mojo Monday sketch 408 to get it all together. I did take the liberty of using a regular A2 card, instead of the Tall & Skinny format for the sketch.

Ooo, doesn’t that look really cool? I have been looking at the cover of the Annual Catalog … who hasn’t been drooling over the Tin of Cards kit featured there? There is a window/aperture card with butterflies, and I wanted to recreate something like it, but not the same. Along came sketch 408 and I knew how I wanted to lay it out.

Do you want to see a closeup of the main butterfly? I really, really like how it turned out.

The card I showed you above is actually version 2.0. The original version had an empty aperture. Looked a bit stark and empty. Also, the butterfly was missing something.

Here I’ll show you a closeup of the original butterfly. This is how I created the bottom layer. The top layer of the final butterfly is the smaller butterfly from the Bold Butterfly framelits cut out of vellum. You can also see that you can use either the large or medium Metal Rimmed Pearls with the butterfly.
