Purple Butterfly Card

This is a new experience for me. An 8 x 8 inch card.
I usually stick to something like 5 x 7 or 6 x 6. But I noticed lots of these larger cards around so decided to have a go. How liberating - I found the extra space so easy to work with allowing extra elements and a whole load more fun. Can see me finding a renewed love of card making :)


Everything I have used is from Papermania but really old stash except for the sparkly ribbon.
The question is now, what do I do with the oodles of A4 ready made cards and envelopes I have :)

Hope you like this one and have time to leave a comment.

Happy Crafting :)

  1. What a lovely card. Those flowers are so vibrant and pretty. I usually like to make 6x6 cards. I just might have to give an 8x8 card a try though :)
