Create-A-Card sketch 9-20-11

The sketch...

And here's what I came up with...

It's a little difficult to see this card but it has an extra fold. The darker part on the left is the outer layer/fold and then there's another fold/layer (that almost reaches the folded edge of the outer layer) with the little butterfly in the upper right corner and then there's the inside of the card for writing. I think it's called a trifold card but I staggered the folds. Then, I used my Sure Cuts a Lot program to cut the scalloped frames (one white, one gold and they were different cutting files so they aren't exactly the same) and the butterflies in three different sizes. The blue striped/zigzag circle in the middle was actually inspiration from a mistake. I cut a circle the wrong size (I realized it when I started cutting but figured I might as well finish the circle and use it for something sometime) then cut the circle in the correct size. Now I had two different sized circles and thought, "Why not keep making smaller and smaller circles and use it because the stripes should make an interesting pattern if I alternate which direction the stripes go." so that's what I did. The final thing I added was the bling, golden rhinestones, to each scallop that showed (which was all I had in that color/size). Because of the fold I gave the card base, I decided that Iwasn't going to use a ribbon (plus I didn't find any rust/blue/gold color I liked).

Thanks for looking,
