 I had a few difficulties with this card and am relieved to actually complete it.  I don't generally do heat embossing but I thought I'd give it a go.  I used two different ink pads and about 5-6 applications of embossing powder between  heating and both attempts don't look that embossed to me so this one is one element short after admitting defeat on heat embossing.

I also had some difficulty adding the paper to the inside and wish I'd done it prior to sealing the "box" part up.  I wasn't sure on the Hollyhock colour.  I have a copic marker called Hollyhock and used that and then decided it looked nothing like the colour in the swatch so grabbed a different copic for the butterfly body and lower part of the wings.


I would like to enter:

Butterfly Challenge - H is for...

The image is a clear stamp from Woodware.  Colouring is with copic markers.  The paper, tag and sentiment are from a paper pad by Kaisercraft.

I followed a tutorial for a Hanging Window Box Card


  1. There is nothing worse than when embossing won't give a good result!
    Love your finished card, for all that, Suze

  2. I am so chuffed that you completed the card despite all the set backs you had . The result is a lovely card.Thankyou for playing along in the butterfly garden with me. Hugs Mrs A.
