If nothing ever changed....

Hi Blogland. I hope you are enjoying this wonderful springtime/summer weather we are having here in the South East at the moment? After all the rain we have had over the past few weeks, it sure does make a pleasant change, even if it is a little too hot for some...
With Father's Day here in the UK just around the corner, I thought I'd make a few projects in colours and themes suitable for this and other male occasions, but also could be adapted for anything else! Today’s project is quite a quick one really. Well, it's really quick to put together, but I guess, as always, it's coming up with the idea's that really takes the time. How many times have you been asked to make a card, and the event is Tomorrow?!
So, for this project I started off by cutting out the Cheery Lynn Lace Flourish Butterfly (DL132) into some Black Mirror Card. I also cut out the Cheery Lynn Lace Butterfly Angel Wing (DL132a) in Gold Mirror Card
and layered the two pieces together...
Next, I cut out the Sizzix Framelit Die, Ironworks (657556) in Black and Gold Mirror Card.
Popping out the pieces from the Black version
and adhering the frame to some Green card,
cutting around it
and then inserting some of the excess pieces from the Gold frame
and adding a couple of Green Gems.. How Art Deco is that?!
Next, I added my stamped sentiment
and the layered Butterfly
before mounting the topper onto my prepared base card. See, I told you it was a quick one.... Have a great day everyone, and enjoy the sunshine (while it lasts!) See you soon. Andy.
