Crafter's Companion, Papercrafts

Butterfly Bling

Having moved to Canada from the UK almost 10 years ago, I had to get used to certain differences between the countries as you can imagine.  One that surprised me a little was that Mother’s Day is in May on this side of the pond, rather than March.

At first it was a little disconcerting, then I had a magic idea that I could be celebrated as a Mum twice per year!  (But no, my Hubby put a stop to that – Father’s Day is the same on both sides, so he thought it was unfair..)  Eventually I got used to it, and actually a May Mother’s Day isn’t so bad – my birthday is in March, and has coincided with Mother’s Day several times.  I don’t want to give my family any excuse for not spoiling me twice 😊

I saw so many beautiful craft ideas for European Mums over this past couple of weeks, which inspired me to create this card.

I used the Crafter’s Companion Sara Signature Rustic Cottage collection, which is coming very soon to, and the Crafter’s Companion store!  It’s perfect for the special Mum in your life.

The background is a collage of Rustic Cottage paper collection, using 1/4″, 1/2″ and 3/4″ strips arranged in offsets for interest.

I used double-sided tape on top of my cardstock (such as Sookwang), before die cutting the butterflies.  This made it much easier to apply the glitter.  

The result is a really pretty card that any Mum would love.
