Today’s card is full of butterfly fun! The Painted With Love Designer Series Paper is bold and bright and artistic, and I love it! It’s a perfect background for stems and butterflies.
The Butterfly Thinlits Dies are classic. Here I’ve layered three butterflies on top of each other, each cut from a different paper. I’ve angled them slightly to make it look like the butterfly is fluttering its wings 🙂 And of course the butterfly is landing on a Gold Foil flower stem cut with the Petals & More Thinlits Dies.
The butterfly card fits nicely inside a handmade vellum envelope. I used the Envelope Punch Board to create the size I wanted. I love to decorate the envelopes of cards I’m going to hand to the recipient (rather than putting in the mailbox).
For this envelope I just added everything I could think of! I monogramed the envelope by cutting a letter from Gold Glimmer Paper using the Large Letter Thinlits Dies. It’s fun to personalize a fancy envelope with a monogram 🙂 And because this is a birthday card, I attached one of the precut birthday cakes from the Sweet Soiree Embellishment Kit. Then I tied on ribbons and gold tinsel and sequins!!
This is a pretty fancy card and I have to admit it’s was for someone very special 🙂 What do you think? I love to hear your comments!
