For You Butterfly Card

Hello and welcome to my blog! This is the 2nd card in my recent Butterfly Card series! If you missed the first one, just hop back to the last post and check it out. I was inspired to make this card by one I saw on Pinterest so I decided to make it pretty and spring-y!


This butterfly image is from the same Close to My Heart set as the big butterfly on my last card. It is now retired but CTMH has many awesome stamps to choose from! Bugs & Hugs is a fun set that would be a great substitute and if you're interested in purchasing that or any other Close to My Heart items, click on the link that says "Mandie From Mandie's Scrappin Sent Me" when you order to let Lori know I sent you.

The "For You" sentiment is also from Close to my Heart. I punched the border with a Fiskars Threading Water Border punch. I also added a bit of May Arts Bakers Twine for texture.  The blue and green patterned papers are from Lawn Fawn. To "color" my butterfly, I simply stamped it once on the White paper and again on a scrap of my Green patterned paper. Then I "fussy cut" the wings and body from the green paper and adhered it over my image on the white paper. I distressed everything with some Tim Holtz Distress Ink to finish it off.

I hope you enjoyed today's card and I hope I'll see you again soon!
