WWC211 - Kath's Feminine "Anything Goes" Challenge

This week's Watercooler Wednesday challenge is an "Anything Goes" with a feminine twist.  Fun?  Of course it is, especially with that gorgeous Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper which I got through my Sale-a-bration credits.  Oh...and there is a huge surprise inside.

My base is Basic Black and then I've simply added a layer of the Botanical Butterfly DSP.  The paper I've used is so elegant with its black and white design, isn't it?  I love those butterflies!  Beside using one piece for the front of my card, I also fussy cut one butterfly from a small leftover piece.  The way I've designed the card, I also had the opportunity to finally use the dies from the Celebrate You thinlits.

What looks like a narrow panel with a butterfly and die-cut "YOU" is actually a belly-band, holding the card together.  I've posted a close up of the butterfly because it is actually covered on both sides with a layer of clear Nuvo crystal drops.  The result is a butterfly that appears to be plastic rather than paper.  The awesome part is that the antennae (yes, I fussy-cut those, too) are nice and strong.

And this is the surprise inside:

I've used the retired Petal Passion Designer Series Paper because its simple black and white design is perfect for this card.  Each of those coloured butterflies is from the Botanical Butterfly DSP and, yes, each one has been fussy-cut.  Sometimes I wonder if I'm a glutton for punishment.  The "Happy Day" die cut on the top panel is actually the wonderful Happy Birthday thinlits die with the "birth" missing.

I love how this Twist Pop Up card turned out, don't you?  

I hope you'll check out the wonderful creations by the Watercooler Artists over at our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.

I've entered my card into the following challenges:

"Just Us Girls" Challenge #477 - Word Week (Birthday)

Inkspirational Challenge #181 - Use Your Stash


  1. Surprise indeed! I love how the black and white just springs open to reveal a splash of color. So clever!

  2. This is brilliant, Heidi! I was immediately drawn to your elegant b/w design. The butterfly looks especially elegant in b/w and I can't wait to do this myself! And then to open the card to an amazing colorful surprise is just over the top sensational!! Hugs, Darnell

  3. Wow! What an awesome fold-out card! Those butterflies are lovely and I like the overall design. Thanks for sharing with us at Inkspirational!

  4. Wow, Heidi ... what a masterpiece! I was already taken with the elegance of those monochrome butterflies and the pop of heart red ... then I scrolled down ... to find a wonderful kaleidoscope of colour and lovely detail in your twist pop up. Such a beautiful surprise! Anita :)
