A Male Butterfly?

Good morning!
I love Saturday mornings! You know why? Less is More challenge gets me up and at 'em! And this morning is no exception! The fab challenge for this week is...

Use Designer Paper In A CAS Way

I don't use designer paper enough...I have tonnes of it lying around, so this could be the way forward...

I have used the Modern Medley DSP for my card and inked the edges using Cherry Cobbler and Chocolate Chip. I placed it under my aperture, cut using the Ovals Framelits.

The butterfly (or is it a dragonfly?) is from Best Of Butterflies and after I inked it with Cherry Cobbler, I then stamped it off 3 times onto scrap paper, then inked it with Basic Black before stamping. It has given a slightly red/brown colour. The sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes was inked the same way, then stamped into place using my Stamp-a-Majig.

I think this is the first time I have used a butterfly stamp set to make a male birthday card!

I have a busy day of card commissions and dog walking today...what have you got planned? Whatever it is, enjoy!


  1. This looks super Lizy, the little creature (not committing myself to say exactly what it is) makes a great embellishment!
    Thanks so much

  4. Lizy, I really admire your 'simple' style absolutely stunning. Wish I could work like you xx

  5. This is lovely Lizy! Great use of DP on your beautiful CAS card.

  6. Love the card! The colours make it a male card. I am one of those persons that has loads of DP and then makes her own backgrounds all the time.... We have a full and fun weekend planned, so I´m of, have a fun weekend yourself!

  7. Great card Lizy. Love how you've added the DP behind the aperture. Not sure if it's a butterfly or a dragonfly either. Looks a bit dragonfly-ish! Very pretty whatever it is and makes a great male card!
