butterfly gifts....

Evening lovely bloggers tonight ive got an easel card and gift set to show ,i made this for two challenges MDUC where its acetate and TOMIC where its summer . I spent ages trying to think of something different to do with acetate and this is what i came up with i used my cricut to cut all the shapes for the card lovin this butterfly at the mo !! i covered the circles with papers but decided to stamp on the butterfly using prima background again .I coloured the tildas with distress inks then used a piece of acetate to make a stand to hold up the butterfly so it looked like it was just floating there is a pic below of the back not that there is much to see but i guess thats the point isnt it !!! the sitting tilda is also attached with acetate ,i finished off with some ribbon and flowers ,the whole thing folds flat to fit in a gift box .I also used more acetate to make the little bag filled it with choccies and popped tilda on the top i love this lying tilda she looks fab draped across anything doesnt she !! i had fun making this hope you like it x x
