A Butterfly Stepper Card

Following my win on the Butterfly Challenge, I was thrilled to be invited by Mrs A to make something for a guest DT slot. So here it is. The theme for the challenge is to use a charm on your project (along with a butterfly, of course!). I haven't made many stepper cards before, and the design for this one evolved by trial and error!

Having got the base sorted, I covered it with papers by Prima (Fairy Belle collection) and then simply added various elements to complete the design. The circle & butterfly circle were cut with Nestability dies, the larger butterfly dies are by Cheery Lynn, and the tiny one is a Dovecraft punch. Leaf punch by Leone Em, flowers by Prima. The sentiment was a freebie from Simple Cards & Papercraft magazine. I added some glitter glue to the butterflies, and brads to the flower centres. The little charm says "believe". I've had it in my stash for years, just waiting for the right project to add it to!

I really enjoyed making this project, so thanks, Mrs A for letting me be a guest DT for you!

I'm over the moon with this card.
The stepper shape is very unusual and works really well with all the elements added. Love the backing paper and the charm is just perfect. Thank you so much for being my Guest Designer on my Butterfly challenge. Hugs Mrs A.

What a beautiful card Lynne - love the black butterflies against the soft colouring of the dp. A beautifully designed card.
Congratulations on accepting the challenge of being a DT - you have really nailed this one.

Wow! Just wow! This is such a stunning card. You have made everything perfect on it, from the design to the papers, to the placement of all your elements. Thank you for sharing! And another thank you for using the charm you did. I have some of those somewhere. I didn't think I had any charms so I could come play (although a friend offered to share hers).
