That is one HUGE butterfly!

Good morning everyone!

I started cleaning up my desk over the past few days... started anyway - such a huge mess and I keep getting sidetracked. I don't have a great deal of space, but I do have a great deal of 'stuff'. Over the past few weeks I had been colouring up cute little things here and there and they've not reached any cards :) So during my clean up I came across this cute new "Large Butterfly" from the Magnolia Butterfly Dreams collection. It was one of those 'had to have' stamps in this collection. And I had also attempted to fold a "Napkin card" a few weeks ago (tutorial can be found HERE), so last night I decided the butterfly just HAD to go on the Napkin card.

This is what it looks like closed..... I didn't have the right punch around the page set for the card, so I made do with the "Swirling Lace" set I had. I've got the "Cherish" and "Eyelet lace" sets on my wish list but just haven't managed to get them yet.

I had considered matting all the DP, but am glad I didn't as it probably wouldnt have closed :) The papers are Prima "Jack and Jill".

The band wraps right around the back to tie at the side.

Hahaha, and here is my attempt at getting a decent photo of the sparkle :)
The gorgeous lace is heirloom eyelet lace I found at a craft store yesterday while shopping with my sister.

All the DP is inked in Walnut stain and the white cardstock is inked with Antique Linen. The butterfly is stamped in Memento Rich Cocoa and coloured with Copics.
Thanks for checking out my Napkin fold card! It was heaps of fun to make.
Have a great day!
Hugs xx
