Spread your Wings with Butterflies and Color Burst


I wanted to design a card using BB or CB (Bisters. Brushos or Color Burst colored crystals) that would show a beginner how easy it is to make a gorgeous card with them. I chose Color Burst for the background of this card because I wanted it to be as bright as possible and of the three choices, in my opinion. Color Burst is the brightest. I started with a piece of watercolor paper larger than needed for the card front so I could tape it down to prevent warping and to allow extra matching pieces for a punched butterfly and this in the inside:

The beautiful butterfly die is by Memory Box. I will be teaching this card in a workshop focusing on BB/CB and other great techniques that I and my talented BFF will be hosting. Stay tuned for more details to come.

I am entering this card in the Anything Goes challenge at Simon Says Stamp, the embellishment challenge at Virginia's View (pearls and butterfly embellishments), and the butterfly challenge at Crafting with Dragonflies (Welcome Back Hilde!)
