The much 'Twitterpated' Mini Catalogue Card!!

Hey everyone! I have had a completely enjoyable day today, hosting my crafty open house to celebrate the launch of the Summer Mini Catalogue!! I had advertised 11am - 2pm but most of the ladies stayed until 4.30 and we had lots of fun chatting and crafting! Thankyou very much to Poppy, Lucy, Audrey, Suzanne and Jade for making today so much fun!

The card that i provided for my make and take project was designed by the lovely Julie and featured several products from the fab new mini catalogue, including the beautiful (Kath Kidston style) 'Twitterpated Fabric'. So here it is:

On a 'Baja Breeze' cardbase we embossed the lovely hearts from the 'Textured Impressions Embossing Folders: Adorning Accents' - i completely LOVE these folders and they are a welcomed addition to my craft stash!:
Next up we used the 'Big Shot' to cut some 'Blushing Bride' and 'Whisper White' card using the 'Labels Collection Framelit Dies', embossing down the centre with the hearts die!

Next up we created the beautiful fabric butterfly! We mounted some of the 'Twitterpated Fabric' onto some card using 'Big Shot Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets' and then used the 'Big Shot' and the 'Beautiful Butterflies Die to cut the butterfly out. Before gluing him into place we tied some 'Wisteria Wonder Bakers Twine' around him to create the antennae.

I just love the 'Twitterpated Fabric' - such a beautiful colour combo and i love the idea of using fabric on card - something i intend to do A LOT of in future, here's a close up of the three beautiful designs:

We finished off the card by adding the sentiment from the 'Apothecary Art' stampset (which coordinates with the ''Labels Collection Framelit Dies'):

We inked the sentiment using 'Red Riding Hood' ink and then very cleverly used the 'Heart Punch' to create the unusual sentiment banner - i love a new way of using an old punch!!!

I hope you like this card and it has inspired you to have a peak through the mini catalogue - you will find an electronic versions of this on the righthand side of my blog - let me know if you would like to make an order:
