Butterfly Card

I’m on a roll here, friends.  Once I started with one sketch, I was excited to try another one.  So I did!  If you give it a try, let me know if you aren’t addicted.  I’ll be surprised.

This card is made using a sketch from Freshly Made Sketches (FMS217).  I love their clean designs. Nothing too fussy for them.  That reflects my style, too (well, on some days  . . :))  so I was drawn to the sketch.

Here is my card:

The butterflies add lots of dimension and interest.  The smaller butterfly is made from vellum.  I love the soft look of vellum.  And of course, the butterfly is covered in some glitter.  What else?

I have something funny to share about the card.  It’s up-cycled.  I used this butterfly in another card but I never really loved the card — but I sure did love the butterfly.  So yes, I removed the beautiful butterfly and added it to this card — where I it works much better!  I then reused the paper in the first card.  Nothing wasted!  Up-cycling can save you lots of work.  Give it a try.

Supplies Used:

Stamps:Watercolor Wings (139424), Sheltering Tree (137163) – sentiment
Paper: Whisper White, Delightful Dijon, Vellum, Tip Top Taupe, Gold Foil
