Butterfly Corners from Chocolate Baroque

Hi there, I thought it was time for a change from Christmas cards so today's card features the gorgeous new Steampunk Butterfly stamps from Chocolate Baroque. As soon as I saw the stamp sheet I fell in love with the beautiful Art Deco style corners and wanted to show them off. 

I took a 6x6 card blank and stamped the corners in each of the 4 corners of the card, i used a black fineliner pen to join the corners and create a frame. I also stamped the corners 8 times on scraps of white card. I coloured all the corners using my promarkers and created a frame in the centre of the card by cutting out 4 of the corners and popping them up with 3d foam. I cut out the flower from the remaining 4 corners and again used 3d foam to decoupage the corners on the card. The sentiment  and frame are from 'Best Relative Ever', die cut with nesties labels 4. I was going to leave the card at that but I couldn't resist adding a couple of butterflies from 'Steampunk Butterfly', again coloured with promarkers, with little black faux pearls for their bodies.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Corrosive Challenge: anything goes
Loves Rubber Stamps: anything goes
Stempel Sonne: anythng goes with a stamp


Thanks for popping by and for all your kind comments, I do appreciate you taking the time to visit

  3. Gorgeous with the crisp white & striking black accenting. The dimensional flowers of the corners is brilliantly effective too. Super combination of circular & diamond elements too.
