Butterfly Card

Besides making the paper, one of my favorite things has become molding the paper.  It another great way to use handmade pieces in your projects.  It's also fun to use all the different molds that Arnold Grummer's carries. 

The card base for this card was created using a sheet of handmade white paper.  I used the basic instructions for making paper and one of the Papermill Kits  for it.  The orange sheet was made for the mat using the same method, but this time a piece of orange Tissue Tints was added for the color.  It was, then, cut down to size to fit the card.  Be sure to save the rest of the sheet for other projects. 

The molded pieces were created using the Garden Bouquet mold and the Mini Assortment Mold and cotton linter.  The Mini Assortment mold has 4 different images so I only used enough of the cotton linter to fill the butterfly section and repeated it to make 3 of them.  I used some decorating chalks to add the colors to each piece.  They were attached to the card using craft glue. 

                                                             

Handmade paper is a great way to get the look and colors you want for your projects.  Add some molded pieces for fun and dimension and you will have a project that's over the top!  Now is the time to have some fun and start a new hobby and to help you when you add the code SPRING20  with your order you will receive 20% off the entire order!  Head on over to the Arnold Grummer website and start a new hobby today!
