Happy Monday and butterfly template







This was a labour of love . I don't have a cuttlebug or template to make this card - I had to start  from scratch with a basic butterfly shape -  I used my fancy scissors to shape the bottom wings and added a slight curve to the top wings . I have covered the cardstock with the patterned paper and then cut out two smaller butterflies . Using a regular holepunch I did a few holes on one butterfly then place the second one behind so the colours would show through.  Try it for yourself using the template above -make sure the top of the wings are on the fold of your card.

Lovely. I've made a few hand cut shaped cards before, and they really are hard! Yours is stunning.
