Be Inspired #42

It's been a few days since I made a card and the latest Cuttlebug challenge was just the right dose of inspiration to get me creating. Here's what I did for the latest Be inspired challenge..

Spring is here!


we were to use our fave embossing folders to make a gatefold card. See those little fingers, I had Maddie hold the card so it won't open on me while I take a picture of the front.


first opening...


second opening reveals a blank space for card dedication.

More close ups...

I used my fave swiss dots for the scallop and also a flower border folder. I made my own scallops by punching out 1" circles, cutting them up in half and layering them beside the patter paper strip.


I had a couple of half circles left over so I made them into a butterfly.

thank you for looking,
Grace
