Butterfly Week: Day 4: Iris Folding Butterfly

Today’s card is a very special one! I used the Bold Butterfly Framelits to cut the butterfly and I filled the inside with an Iris Folding pattern that I created.  I used the new “Cotton Paper Assortment” which is a lightweight but sturdy paper.  Perfect for iris folding or even origami! It comes in 4 colors: Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry, Watercolor Wonder and Cucumber Crush.

For my background, I used the Brick Wall embossing folder that I sponged with Cajun Craze and Soft Suede. This embossing folder is my new favorite!  The embossed lines are great to pick up the ink, so the brick outlines are darker with no work! I completed the card with some leaves made with the Bird Builder punch and some tiny flowers.
