It's Barbara here and I am back today with my Sunday Inspirations post. Since spring has finally come, I wanted to use the beautiful butterfly punch on a card for you. Lately it seems I am always using that punch,and that's because its so pretty. My card design is a 5"X7" dark green card stock. I cut a 4" square piece of yellowish card stock and used punch 901 on the corners. I also used insert C in the punch.
Next I used that great circle cutter to cut a 3 3/4" and 3 1/2" circles. The circles were layered on the square. The circle cutter is a great and very versatile tool, allowing you to cut circles up to 6", perfect for your cards or even scrapbook pages.
Next I cut 2 - 2" squares. I centered each side of the square into the punch and using insert A, I punched each side of the square.
Just to add some interest I trimmed off the corners.
I then attached these octagon shaped elements to the small panel on the card. The stamp set I chose to use, has musical notes in it and thought those notes would look great layered on the octagon shapes. I stamped and cut the bird and verse and layered those over the main area of the card and here is the finished card.
