Butterflies and Roses

Continue the fun!  I used the Karen Burniston’s Accordion Circle die again to create a Mother’s day card .  This card features the Spiral Rose die – expanded with the blossom punch – and the butterfly from Backyard Basics on the front.  The piece underneath the rose is from Daydream Medallions.  It looks so pretty on the Happy Watercolor paper.  The instructions for the spiral rose can be found here. 

This is the card opened – The center sentiment is from Lots of Thanks – a great sentiment for my mom!  I continued with Daydream Medallions and butterflies.  To finish the card I covered the back with more Happy Watercolor DSP and put 2 butterflies so that the wings from the front are covered.

  1. Fran, Another amazing Accordion card. You show the versatility of the dies well.

  2. So pretty. I would never have suspected that you used the spiral cut rose die, as yours turned out so much more realistic than any I have seen. I have not been impressed with that die before I saw your rose. Such a nice job on the whole card.

  3. I love, love, love this die, it’s so versatile. Your Mothers Day card is gorgeous & really changed the look of this die…

  4. Thanks!  I love cards that “move!”  Hugs, Fran

  5. Adding the 2 Blossom punches underneath the spiral rose really gives it some “umph.”  Thanks – Hugs, Fran

  6. You outdid yourself with this one. You need to submit it for the award!

  7. Thanks, Judi!  You’re too sweet!  Hugs, Fran

  8. Absolutely beautiful!

  9. I didn’t have a chance to see this amazing card till today and, as always Fran, you did a magnificent job. This card is so beautiful that it can be displayed year round, the back is gorgeous too, a delight for the eyes any which way you look at it.
    Thank you for sharing.
