So today I tackled a 'Tunnel Card' for the "T" Butterfly challenge #137 --- well that was fun - glad I roughed one out with scrap first, ironed out a few glitches and then made it out of a pretty designer paper.
I cut a rectangle in the front panel after I'd scored and folded the card base. Then decided to use the offcut for the centre panel and used a Label die to create the opening .... from the same DP pack I chose the light pink paper for the background... and assembled the card.
To decorate the card I chose flowers from a large stash I've had and not used for a very long time, also so pearl stamen. I formed a cone from a scalloped die cut circle to use a wrapping tied with some teal twine, and placed this inside the card.
I die cut 'LOVE' on pale pink card and backed it with darker pink and then die cut two butterflies also from the scraps, touched the edges of the larger one with pink ink and then decorated both with White Crystal Drops and finally attached these in place and added two pink teardrop gems.
I'm really happy with the result and have included with my tunnel card and butterflies, two gems, tea rose, teal and twine.
Thanks for stopping by my blog --- have a wonderful Happy Day
