Well, not really…..but you don’t want to miss the boat on the next CAARDVARKS CHALLENGE!!

It’s all about SHAPED CARDS and it’s been a tonne of fun seeing all the DT cards this round…be sure to visit the challenge link above to check them out. FABULOUS!

Anyhoo, the prize this round is a 3 month subscription to SNR – one FABULOUS magazine!

So think up a shape and get creating!

I made the template for this butterfly myself, but have included it here for you if you’d like to try it out.

Just open the photo of the pattern in a new tab and print it out.

***TECHNICAL Difficulties!! Trying to fix this so you can print it πŸ™‚

The top part of the wings are to be placed on the fold of a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 top fold card base.
The large outline is the card base. The inside outline is to be cut from patterned paper.

Enjoy πŸ™‚

    You really did a magnificent job on this butterfly, from the shape to the stitching to the felt details. It’s absolutely perfect Tanis! I’ll definitely be putting the template to use in the future. Thanks so much for sharing!
