Florisima Trail
by Sue McRae

Welcome, I hope you've been following along with us this past week with the blog blitz we have going on. There's another week left of new products and fabulous inspiration by the design team.


Today I'm showcasing the Florisima Trail die. When I saw this die the first thing I thought of was using it to create a butterfly trail and that's exactly what I did.

Out of white linen card stock I die cut the Florisima Trail so that it would start at the butterfly and end off of the paper. I then flicked gold paint across this panel.


I took a piece of white card stock and created an inky rainbow using Distress Inks and gave it a quick spray with Perfect Pearls. I adhered this rainbow piece behind the opening in the white panel and inlaid the flowery trail right on top.

I die cut the largest butterfly from the Stitched Butterfly Trio from white card stock and inked it up with Distress Inks in blue and purple and sprayed it with Perfect Pearls. Then I die cut the butterfly three times from black card stock and adhered all the butterfly layers together by adding adhesive to only the centre of the butterfly so the wings could be fluffed.


The butterfly and Scribble Thank You were adhered to the panel and that was attached to a black card base. I finished off the card with some gems.
