Hobby Cutz 60 Fancy Folds

I’m a little late with this week’s Hobby Cutz challenge which is Fancy Folds. We are sponsored by Iva Nova Chest.

HC 60 Fancy Folds 1

My card is a swing card which I made with the help of Go Kreate dies, Frilly Square number 10, and the lovely papers from Bo Bunny.

The fabulous butterfly is from Hobby Cutz gorgeous range of lazer cuts and I first painted it white and then used Pinflair’s BuffIt to give it a gorgeous warm sunny shine. The gems were from my stash and I coloured them with promarkers to match the colour scheme. I also coloured the holographic peel off I used for the border of the front of the swing with the same colour.

The lovely metal star with swirly tails has been in my stash for a VERY long time and I thought it was high time I used it on something!

I love the warmth of the colours in this and it reminds me of late Summer and early Autumn days, which I guess are just around the corner. I swear the seasons go faster with each year!
