Hi there! Almost every card I design has a story behind it. This particular design is something I created in honor of my late Mom. The centerpiece of this design is a delicate lace butterfly, one of my Mom's favorite creatures--something we shared in common. She had the color green in so many places--her favorite outfits to furniture pieces. Elegant and beautiful is how I remember my Mom and I think this card is a fitting tribute to her.
For this design, I embroidered a FSL (free standing lace) butterfly and adhered it to a panel of pearl paper. The panel is then framed by a metallic gold die cut frame matted by a Tiffany blue panel on a card base. The overall card measures 5-1/4" square.
I decided to make some extra cards to put in my new shop that are slightly different. For the new design, I kept the original design but added a black mat to place on a larger white 6-1/4" card base. You can see the listing here:
