Butterfly Bouquet: Spanner Card

So this is a new fold to me… I saw one made by ramblinstamper.blogspot.com and thought I would have a play especially to make the butterfly ‘fly’ a little. Now I have to admit that sadly the papers have already sold out in the UK…. but the good news is that you could easily make this using the stamps and dies and some of the gorgeous Stampin Up! DSP . The other apology is that this post is a little late….. I’ve been feeling the after effects of my COVID vaccination… and I kept going yesterday when I had a fab birthday…but probably should have rested a little more….. but it is so worth it to know that I’m on the way to getting some protection from this awful virus.

it’s a fold that is very similar to the centre panel card….just add a little bar across.

I love that added element of surprise created by a fun fold…. and I know so,w are not keen on butterflies…but I do love them…in all the different colours …many happy memories watching them on a buddleia bush….and last year that was part of the view from my dining room whilst working from home.
so have fun…have a play….and let me know how you get on!
