Beads and butterfly greeting card

I made this card for my aunt's birthday - it's folded so the front is shorter than the back, then the beaded ribbon trim hangs down to the bottom.

I diecut the butterfly itself for another project, but the negative space of the paper I cut ends up with a really cool debossed outline of the die edges. A few chomps with a fancy corner punch, a little bling and we're done!

I like the denim paper with accents of gold, rust and brown...quite the Levi's colors.


  1. I love this, Lisa! The beading at the bottom adds such a luxurious touch! And the funny thing is that I just diecut a bunch of flower shapes last night and was about to toss out the "negative spaces" when I realized that they were even prettier than the flowers themselves! Now nothing will ever be thrown away! :)


Thanks so much for visiting my blog - I look forward to visiting yours, too!
