Spring Butterflies



Happy Easter everyone, hope you are enjoying the sunshine and having a relaxing day.  I have a free weekend with no visitors and am hoping to get some serious crafting done.  I managed to make a few things last week during the evenings using this week's Special Offer at Papermilldirect, which is:

A Small Box A4 White Smooth Paper 100gms
£3.00 (approximately 160 sheets)
There is also free postage on orders over £25 this Easter Sunday and Monday

I used the 100gm paper to print a beautiful butterfly digital backing paper in pretty pinks and purples. The papers (Autumn Papers) were from Pinkpetticoat, although I don't think these papers are still in the shop there are still lots of pretty papers to download as well as digi images too.


I made a card blank using Papermill white linen card and used a Memory Box die to cut out the butterfly (the butterfly wings do not cut out completely so it is still attached to the card).  The quote, another Pinkpetticoat digi sentiments download, was printed onto white linen card, cut to size and mounted and sewn onto Papermill New Lilac smooth card.  The printed patterned paper was used with New Lilac card under the quote.  I put a patterned insert in the card with a smaller plain lilac insert for writing on, I also lined the envelope to match.  A gift tag was made using  the spare card, pleating the patterned paper and sewing it down the center, this was layered onto New Lilac card with a lilac butterfly added.


Details of all Papermill Special Offer can be found HERE and don't forget there is also free postage on all orders over £25 this Easter Sunday and Monday.
