Layered Butterfly Card

I had seen a beautiful butterfly card awhile ago on Pinterest by Daniela Dobson, HERE and I just loved it so I pinned it.  Well I totally forgot about it until I saw the ones that Kristin, from Paper Creations by Kristin made on facebook, you can see Kristin's HERE, aren't they just beautiful!!

I used the butterfly card from SVG Cuts kit Cheryl's Cute Bugs and made two more layers and resized each one smaller.  For the top smaller layer, I wanted cutouts so I used a butterfly from the Breezy Meadow Butterflies collection, resized it to fit and broke it apart, keeping just the inside pieces, I merged them with the layer.  

The flowers are from the Mothers Garden kit, one of my favorite kits, I seem to always use something in this kit.  Paper is from Echo Park's Sweet Day collection, love it, and the stamped sentiment is from Unity Stamps, Dream Big Itty Bitty.

  1. Just Beautiful, Brigit. Do you find you get the best photo's by taking them in the outside light? Also, May I ask what camera you use? Thanks and Hugs, Lorna

  2. Thank you Lorna, this picture was actually taken inside. I have a wooden L shape structure made out of old boards that I photo on now, I use three lights one on top and two on the sides, but I find the best light is to point them all up to the ceiling otherwise the lighting is too harsh. I just bought a new camera in June a Nikon D5100 and I love it!!

  3. Thank you for the information, Brigit. You are very kind to share. :-)
