The picture below shows my first attempt at casing a card I saw on Pinterest. I loved the sentiment from the Stampin' Up! Butterfly Basics set. The picture makes the sentiment look blurry. I had the half of one doily already so used it and cut a circle of SU dp to add to it. On an A2 size card, it didn't look right so I cut the card down on the top and bottom edge making it close to a square card.
I wasn't real happy with this card so...........
I took a second doily out but used more of it on the card which helped. I changed the sentiment, SU dp and butterfly color used. I also rounded the corners of the right hand edge to give it a softer look. I liked this one much better.
Card #3 - My Favorite
My third try was a success. I changed the card base to coordinate with the Island Indigo color in the dp. The yellow butterfly was a nice bright finish. While I was making cards this past weekend, I decided to start lining envelopes more often..........I have way too much paper and it really makes a wonderful presentation for the card.
The doilies and dp used on these cards are from Stampin' Up!
