Bohemian Butterfly Cards by KATRINA THOMPSON

Hello everyone and thankyou for joining with me again today. I have been playing with the Bohemian Bouquet again. One of the great aspects of this collection is the colour range and today I have used the blues as my base theme.
I have used one pack of the Blue Butterflies, one sheet of 12x12 paper and 1 sheet of the decoupage designs. Teamed with plain white cards and one of the gorgeous Bohemian Bouquet stamp sets, I found the strong shots of orange pink and green bursts give a clean and fresh look to this set of cards. I hope you enjoy. K x


I have used the Decoupage Die cut sheet, 1 12x12, the Blue Layered Butterflies and Stamp Set.

Card 1.

Fold one of your A6 cards in half.
Cut a strip, 4cm wide x 14.9cm high, from the reverse of the 12x12 and ink in a coordinating blue.
Attach to the card front 2cm in from the spine.
Pop the decoupage pieces from the sheet, trim around the edges to get a desired finish.
Arrange the pieces around the butterfly as you wish. Your options are endless.
Stamp the sentiment in the lower portion of the blue strip to balance. 







Card 2.

Fold one of your Tall cards in half.
Cut a panel from the print, 10.2cm wide x 21cm high. Ink in a coordinating blue & attach to the card.
Cut a smaller panel from the reverse, 5.5cm wide x 14.8cm high and ink the edges.
Cut a plain white panel to frame the print, 6cm x 15.3cm.
Pop the decoupage pieces from the sheet, trim around the edges to get a desired finish.

Attach the print to the white to create a white border and attach to the card using 3D.
Stamp the image using the picture as a guide. I had already roughly placed my decorative pieces in place to get an idea of where the sentiment would fit best.

Arrange the pieces around the butterfly as you wish. Again, your options are endless.



Card 3.

Fold one of your Tall cards in half. Tear down along the front edge, 3.5cm in from the spine, removing most of the front cover.
Cut a panel from the print, 10.7cm wide x 21.5cm high. Ink in a coordinating blue.
This will become the main portion of the new front cover. Attach it by securing behind the white flap, into the spine of the card.
You will then see the reverse of the panel when you open the card.
Cut a strip from the reverse panel to include the decorative barcode strip section which will give you another design element. Tear along the green edge to match the torn edge on the card, ink in blue and attach on the front white flap section.

Recycle the small rectangle print by using the packaging from the Butterflies. Cut a panel 5.5cm wide x 9.8cm high. Ink in a coordinating blue.
Cut a plain white panel to frame the recycled print, 6cm x 10.4cm. Attach the 2 pieces with a layer of 3D in between then attach flat to the card front as pictured.


Pop the decoupage pieces from the sheet, trim around the edges to get a desired finish and using the butterfly as your focus, arrange the pieces as you wish.
