My one and only daughter turned 19 today. I find it harder to make cards for the people I am closest to. I don't know why. I guess because I want them to be extra special.
I have admired this butterfly on the Close to my Heart's Art Philosophy cartridge since I first saw it
(page 55). I did 3 layers. A solid bottom layer in purple, a solid layer in purple glitter and the filigree layer in the solid purple. I only glued the layers together in the center so that the wing layers are seperate. Then I put it on an Action Wobble.
I took these pictures in a hurry and the paper colors are off. The bottom layer has a nice warm brown background that doesn't come out in the picture. I added gems to the butterfly's body and smaller gems for the antennae. A brown flower and pink flower with a purple center to finish the outside.
On the inside I used a deep edge Martha Stewart punch that I recently got called Daisy Lace. I absolutely love this punch. The Happy Birthday is one I have used repeatedly this fall from a Close to My Heart set called Celebrations. I love it too. The butterflies are also from a Close to My Heart set called Sentiments. These sets were on special when I ordered the Art Philosophy cartridge and I picked them up also.
As I often say, this card is prettier in person because my photo didn't turn out well. It didn't turn out quite like I wanted but my daughter, Shelby liked it and that is what matters the most!
Thanks for coming by,
