K1-691 - flaked Birthday-Butterfly

Heute morgen war es in meinem Bastelzimmer noch kühl... jetzt ab mittags, wenn die Sonne um die Ecke kommt, möcht ich dann doch lieber in den Garten & den Pool... ;-)
Entstanden sind vorhin gleich zwei Schmetterlings-Karten - das ist bei gestanzten Elementen ja immer eine tolle Option!
Die erste hat einen weißen Schmetterling mit eingelegten Elementen, die mit Mega-Flakes (oder auch gilding-flakes) "coloriert" sind.
Die "Reste" des Flattermanns fanden dann auf der zweiten Karte Verwendung.
This morning my craft room was well-temperatured... but now the sun came around the corner and it's getting warmer and warmer - I think I'll prefer garden and pool-time for the afternoon... :-)
I made two butterfly-cards with only one working-step - that's the great opportunity with die-cut-elements!
For the first card I used a white butterfly and puzzled in the small elements "colored" with mega-flakes (also known as gilding-flakes).
The "rest" of the fluttering guy I used in the second card.

Ideen zur Karte:
Inspiriert haben mich diesmal echte Schmetterlinge mit den schimmernden und schillernden Schuppen auf ihren Flügeln.
Die super-leichten Mega-Flakes passen da doch sehr gut...
Ideas behind the card:

This time I was inspired by real butterflies with the shimmering and iridescent scales on their wings.
The super-light mega-flakes fit perfectly...
