Stampin'Up! UK - Swallowtail meets petite petals Box card

Morning ! 
Today's make is another box cards, yes! Another. I just love making them, they are so easy to do. 
I decided a want a pretty girly card and thought butterfly's ! What girl doesn't like butterfly's. 

I used the basic black cardstock for my card base and very vanilla for my matting. I decided against using designer series paper for my matting as I wanted to carry on the butterfly them on the outside as well. 
So I decide on the large swallowtail stamp, which I stamped onto the very vanilla card in Smoky slate and Rich razzleberry ink  and the cut into the matting sizes. 
Then the rest of the card was pretty quick , I stamps lots of butterfly images from the papillon potpourri stamp set and punched them out with the co - ordinating elegant butterfly punch ( 127526  - £14.25 ) 
It doesn't punch all the stamps as they are different sizes , so the others I cut out using the Stampin'Up! Paper snips , which are fantastic and a must have in any craft room. I also stamped and punch some images from the petite petals stamps set and punched using the co ordinating punch. 

Then it's just a case of placing the images where you want them! I used window sheet ( acetate) to give them the illusion of flying.  It also allows you to put the at various heights and make effect a bit more dramatic. 









As I've said before I love this type of card as they fold flat for posting! Which in the current econmic climate, saving a little money on postage always helps, I also intend to make a matching envelope for this card with my Envelope punch board.

Happy crafting
