When I printed out the sketch to start creating my card I didn't realize that I had flipped the image and was half way through the card before I realized something just didn't look right, but I wasn't about to start over. Mistakes happen...we learn to deal with them. In my case I make a lot of card mistakes (along with real life mistakes) but the card ones work out just about every time.
I started by taking Post-it notes and masking off areas on the card base. Then sponged in the masked off areas and stamped a border image along the area to complete it. At first I left the area open that would have been the upper most crossed over area, then I decided to colour it in as well and use that space to place my butterflies.
Originally I was going to make this an all white card but once I had the purple butterflies on the front I realized that I needed a little more punch around the edges so I made my card base the same dark purple as the butterflies.
Once I finished the entire card and sat back to look at it, it made me laugh because the background was in the shape of the letter "B" and I used "Butterflies" to accent it.
I hope you like what I have come up with. Now it's your turn. Need a little more inspiration? Hop over to the TSOT site and see what the other Great Designers have in store for you.
