Black and white birthday butterfly

Hello there,
I really like monochrome cards, particularly black and white, but also sometimes with a bit of red added into the mix.

For this card I used an 8 x 8 card blank and added a black mat. The large white mat and smaller panel are both made using some Kanban embossed roses card which I've had in my stash for ages. The small square panel is also layered on to a black mat, placed over some black satin ribbon which I also used for the bow. The pre die cut butterfly is also Kanban from a black, white and red kit I picked up ages ago at a show, it was going cheap as it was all in German! I added some black gems to the body of the butterfly and a swirly gem trail, a Craftwork Cards sentiment and gems to the corners.

I'm entering this into the following challenges:
Crafty Girlz Challenges: Black and white theme
Seize the Birthday: ATG
Tuesday Throwdown: Favourite embellishment - Butterfly

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you like it and if you have time to leave a comment that would be great.


  1. What a beautiful card....I love butterflies also, so I was really drawn to your card! I love black and white cards, as they have a simplistic look but are so elegant at the same time! So happy you shared this with us at Tuesday Throwdown Challenge this week!

  2. A black and while card really makes an elegant statement and a gorgeous card. I love the simple lines and this could be for a female or male. Thanks for joining us at Seize the Birthday. Hope to see yo again.
