Rose Petal Butterflies

Today’s card will be entered into the ModSquadChallenge to use something from nature on your card.  My nature items are rose petal butterflies.  I glued some rose petals to a piece of cardstock, punched them out using two different Martha Stewart punches.  The stamp set used on the card is Gina K Designs’ Rose Bouquet which was stamped in versamark ink and emboss set with gold embossing powder.  I added a layer of gold embossing and a swiss dot embossing folder layer before finally mounting on to a card base.  I wanted to focus the color on my rose petal butterflies.


I did have to redo my butterflies since they shrunk a little in the places that no glue was adhered.  Somewhere in my stash I should have some of that Stick It paper…I’ll have to search.

Here’s the link to the ModSquadChallenge.

Thanks for looking!

    1. Thanks so much, Judy, my roses although pretty year were not a plentiful as past years but I really like the way they turned out.

    1. Golda, you are right about the scent..they were quite fragrant. I put a note inside the card to let my friend know that they were rose petals.

  1. I finally found your post here. I love this, so over the top creative. Just beautiful. Please enter your card again over at The Mod Squad, so sorry I deleted it. As I said, I couldn’t access your post here and didn’t know you had used something from nature. Thanks for playing along.

  2. This is so clever and having read the comments made in private I can understand how you must have felt when it got deleted. Looks like Judy was willing to have you resubmit but perhaps too late for you to do so. Great card though and I love the colour of the rose petals. Wow.
