When I was working on my Create with Connie and Mary challenge last week, some of the pieces fell together on my desk and resembled a butterfly…well, at least they did to me. So…this idea has been in my head for a while. The new Summer Smooches Designer Paper seemed perfect for this butterfly. She is easy to make…cut some squares and round a couple of the corners! That's it! Combined with Perfectly Penned stamp, "Celebrate today"…it seemed like a great reason to celebrate! Oh, and I finished the wedding invitations for a friend…another reason to celebrate today!
The base of the card is Rich Razzleberry cardstock. I layered the Summer Smooches Designer Paper along the bottom of Whisper White (this is my FAVORITE pattern in that package!) and I tied the new Daffodil Delight Seam Binding Ribbon around in a knot bow! (Check out my Ribbon Shares here…I've added Daffodil Delight Seam Binding!) I stamped Celebrate Today from Perfectly Penned in Rich Razzleberry in the center. My butterfly wings are 1" and 3/4" squares with two opposite sides punched with the Corner Rounder Punch. A tip…use a post-it note to hold the tiny 3/4" square in place while you punch it. The body is a trio of Pearls and a small cut of Old Olive 1/8" Taffeta for the antenna. Pretty clean and simple card, but I like how it turned out!!
I hope you Celebrate Today, too, and have a GREAT one!
