Clearly Besotted Lift the flap butterfly card

Hello everyone. I am delighted to be Guest Designing for the wonderful Words 2 Craft By challenge  today and the words for the challenge this time are

       Just when the caterpillar thought her life was over... she began to fly.                         

Grab Our Blinky!

I decided to make a lift the flap card and cut the lift up panel on my Silhouette Cameo. Then I cut a label shape and stamped the cute caterpillar from the Clearly Besotted Cute as a Bug stamp set on it. Next, I used a Silhouette sketch pen to write the quote above the caterpillar and matted the label onto some pink card. I fixed the label to the front of the flap and then moved on to the under layer.

I cut another pink mat and wrote on the words before cutting a butterfly from my NBUS  MFT Flutter of Butterflies dies, colouring it and coating it with Wink of Stella Glitter Pen.

The panel was fixed to the base card on fun foam to give some dimension, and as the white on white looked a bit stark, I took a Copic pen and added polka dots around the edge to give a frame effect.

I'd like to thank Sybrina for inviting me to join in this time - I really enjoyed playing around with this card and it was an honour to join you. Why not pop over to the Words 2 Craft By blog to see lots of inspiration from the talented Design Team.

I'd like to take my card to play at
