Have a peek at this happy butterfly card, somehow butterflies always seem to make me smile, I guess cause they're just so pretty, hope you think these are too.
I used a new butterfly cover plate from Papertrey Ink, cutting it out four times, first in white CS, then in Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight and finally in Blue Lagoon. Oops forgot I also cut another one out of vellum.
Separated each CS colored butterfly from their respective color and glued onto the background white CS. Then sponged each of the three colors onto one each of the vellum butterflies. Then glued the vellum pieces onto each of the three colors.
All of this was then adhered to a backdrop of Stampin' Up's Botanical Blooms DSP. I then cut another cover plate to get the white frame as I didn't like the way it looked with out it. I just cut off the three butterflies and kept them for a future project. Added a bit of sparkle using the Wink of Stella pens to the butterflies body.
As I don't have all my supplies with me, once again, I had to improvise and stamped the greeting on a small scalloped oval piece that had been trimmed down.
Sorry, I forgot to take a photo of the inside of the card as I was, as usual, in a rush to get it into the mail to a dear friend's birthday in MI.
I really like reading your comments and hope you come back again soon.
