BUTTERFLY CARD

I loved the Butterfly on the kit layout (see older post), that I just had to make a card using it. The butterfly is from the Tinkerbell cartridge. The paper is Paper Studio, Meadowsweet line. I cut the pink layer of the butterfly on pink Core-dinations paper, using the lighter side for the butterly; the darker textured side I used to punch the bottom layer of the flowers. The top layer of the flowers were punched from Bazzill String-of-Pearls. I used an EK flower punch tocreate the flowers. The brownish shadow layer of the butterfly is cardstock from Hobby Lobby, and as they don't mark their cardstock, I have no idea who the vendor is or the name of the color. It doesn't show up very well in the photo, but I outlined the pink layer of the butterfly and the top layers of the flowers with Sakura Gelly Roll pen "Clear Star". The sentiment is from Stampin' Up (love their stamps), stamped with Cocoa Brown ink. I edged with Cats Eye pink and light brown inks. The inspiration for this card is Jeannie Phillips, a designer who contributes to the cricut.com message board. If you haven't visited the site, you should do so right away - there are so many talented people on the board that share their creations every day. Jeannie is an awesome designer and a beautiful Christian. She is a delight! Stop by the message board first chance you get!

  1. Oh my! What a beautiful card!!!

    I am so sorry you missed the showcase! I was so waiting to hear from or see a posted project from you. You are such a wonderful crafter and dear person, and whenever you're ready with a project please let me know and I'll do all the work in getting it registered. June 21 is my week to be the theme designer for showcase #12. Once I decide on what the theme will be, I'll leave you a comment. Maybe you will complete a project for me, I'd really love to have one of your projects showcased because you are such an inspiration to me.

    God Bless and many hugs, my friend!
