morning I uploaded my video which shows how I made this butterfly banner
It’s my take on a card one of the lady’s in my team did for her
Card & Cuppa session on Monday.
CrafteresaUK runs these sessions at
Mooch1 in St Annes between 1.30 – 3.30PM every Monday. (For more details,

stamped the lacy design at the bottom of her card using Whisper White
Craft Ink which takes a little while to dry.
The stamp is from the Sale-a-bration
stamp set called Delicate Details and, depending
on the colour of cardstock, I used either Gold or Silver Embossing
My card bases are all Tip Top Taupe, with a layer of Whisper White on the Mint Macaroon and Watermelon Wonder cards and Very Vanilla on the Delightful Dijon card.
wasn’t sure of the measurements CrafteresaUK used and you may notice that
the length of the banner grew as I went – the first being Mint Macaroon
was the shortest, then Delightful Dijon and on video I did Watermelon
I had to cut the Mint Macaroon Banner shorter than I’d planned
because I’d stamped the lacy design too high!
used the Triple Banner Punch to fishtail the end of the banner, but
this could always be cut by hand if you don’t have this punch.
For the second and third cards I
used the 3/8″ Metallic Ribbon Combo which is another gift available
during Sale-a-bration and blends brilliantly with our Gold and Silver
After I’d added the ribbon around the base, I added a faux bow or false knot – I’m not quite sure what to call this! Any ideas?
had given her butterfly antennae which encouraged me to do the same!
It’s amazing how much better this addition makes to
That’s about it for today. I’m off to my studio now to make a card for tomorrow!
So until tomorro, happy crafting.
