Butterfly Parade

Hi, I'm back with another post today!  I've had some fun in my craft room today and churned out a couple of cards for challenges as well as my usual DT cards, which will feature during the week.

This card uses the inspiration pic from Card Concept and the butterflies code word at Addicted to CAS.

As soon as I saw the picture at Card Concept, I immediately was drawn to the rainbow and white color scheme and knew what I wanted to create.  I made a card in the Clean and Graphic style:


I started with a Fog card case, die-cut with a stitched rectangle die.  I then die-cut the Butterfly Drift die in white and rainbow colors.  When I adhered the butterflies to the card base, the full butterflies were only stuck down in the middle so their wings can sit up.  For the largest butterfly, I put a body and antenna on using the Leavenworth Trio die by Memory Box - a perfect fit!

I wanted a scripty sentiment to mimic the butterflies' flight so used Signature Greetings by PTI.  All the butterflies were colored with clear Wink of Stella for some shimmer.


Thanks for visiting.

Ack - you are killing me with that butterfly die. I do not need it. I do not need it. I do not need it. And I think it goes without saying that this card is utterly fabulous!
