Birthday card

It's a very CAS card, one layer inspiration from Simply Stamped.  I stamped the butterflies on the far right hand side of the card front, then fussy cut them leaving a beautiful edge.  Stamped the sentiment and it was done, how quick  is that and I love the results.





Here's a peek at the inside, I really like using an image from the front of the card to carry the theme to the inside (from my daughter Nance Leedy @ Canopy Crafts)



Fussy cutting the edge of this card has inspired me to try other stamp images in a similar fashion, how about you?

I'd love to hear from you regarding your thoughts on my card.
Thanks for looking,
Nancy

I ADORE this card, Mom! When I first saw it, I thought you used a new edge die to cut around the butterflies. The technique of hand-cutting the edge is GENIUS! Love the colors, love the inside, love it all. And, YES, you inspired me to try this technique with other stamps--you'll see soon! ;-)

Nancy I just loved seeing this card up close and personal. So darn pretty... the fussy cut edge is spectacular, especially in the butterflies. Just gorgeous.

I agree with Nance, we'll have to experiment with other shapes. hugs.

What a gorgeous card! I just love the idea of cutting around the butterflies. I'm going to look thru my stamps & see what I could use for this technique. Think I may have one butterfly I could use.
