Less is More - Cut it Out

Hi everyone, hope you all are having a good weekend.  They go so quick, in a blink of an eye it's Monday morning.  I have however managed to make a card for the Less is More challenge this week which is a theme and that is to cut it out.

And here is my card...

It has actually go 8 apertures cut into it.  I used the Martha Stewart punch.  Underneath is Kath Kidson fabric, which I 'borrowed' from my Mum, I've used wadding under each butterfly to give it that padded look. (the photo in my opinion doesn't do it justice, it's a touchy feely card).  I used to love making aperture cards with fabric and haven't done it for such a long time I'm wanting to make more.  On top is just another piece of white card which I punched and attached with 3D foam pads, just to give it some dimension.  I then needed to fill the middle, so I used one of the butterflies, added a few pearls and hey presto.  I'm quite pleased with how it's turned out.  

It's my best friends birthday next week, so I think this will be 'winging' (pardon the pun) to her.

Have a lovely evening.
