Blue Roses and Butterflies
Hello, Friends! When you love blue the way I do, you make a pretty card with blue roses and butterflies. I’ve never seen a blue rose, but just look at all the dreamy blues in this Prima Georgia Blues card.
This 6″ x 6″ layered card called for a beautiful blue bow. Light Navy Taffeta from Really Reasonable Ribbon makes a crisp triple loop bow. I’ve topped this with a Gold Metallic String loopy bow and a big ole blue rose. Everything about this card makes me want to go sip a tall glass of sweet tea on the veranda.
Blue Roses and Butterflies: How I Made It
Here’s how this card came together:
- First, create a 6×6 card base from navy cardstock.
- Cut a 5 3/4″ square of patterned paper from the Georgia Blues collection.
- Mat on a slightly larger panel of soft blue cardstock.
- Now cut a 4″ x 4″ panel of designer paper and double mat on soft blue and navy cardstock. Back with dimensionals. Center and adhere.
- Die cut Spellbinders APG Elegant Infinity from patterned paper. Place dimensionals in the center and sides. They will show, but we will cover them up with design elements. Center and adhere.
- Select ephemera bits from the paper collection and arrange to cover the dimensionals behind the die cut.
- Add some Reneabouquets butterflies and vintage blue buttons to complete the design.
Blue Roses and Butterflies: A Peek Inside
Cover the inside of the card with more of the pretty papers. Add pockets.
Tuck in a pretty journal card and a color matched tea bag to turn the card into a gift.
