I’ve had this idea dancing around in my head for awhile… a butterfly wreath… but it didn’t seem appropriate to create it mid-winter. I’ve been having a blast creating 6×6 canvas pieces, the size is perfect for all my card making dies, stencil and stickers. The wreath is formed from paper covered wire which I found at my local craft store along with Paper Twine by Maya Road.

It’s light and airy plus has that feel of Spring to me. I used the Prima paper pad for my collaged background along with a bit of tissue paper.  I pulled out a bunch of my dies including the Tim Holtz Movers and Shakers Butterflies which I cut out from book text, and the beautiful Simon Says Stamp Devonshire Butterfly cut from Bazzill Vellum.

The canvas came together pretty quickly and I shot a video of the process which you can see below or on our YOUTUBE CHANNEL.

  1. Oh Shari, it’s stunning, beautiful, gorgeous, pretty, fabulous, did I leave any word out, lol. Seriously it’s one of the prettiest cards I’ve seen, it’s on my to make list for my best friends b-day. Only a Mother or best friend deserve working that hard on a card for. I’ve been a fan of your cards and products for a while now and I just want to say thanks you so much for the inspiration and sharing your talents with us.
