Birthday Butterflies

Today is such a beautiful day in Arizona! The weather is just perfect as it is most days in the winter here!!! It's a butterfly day!!! This card is an Easel card and the directions can be found here. I got some new paper at Joann's this past week and it is absolutely gorgeous! It is a pad called Mariposa by DCWV. There are lots of glittery pages and I do love that! This paper is from an 8 x 8 pad and I used one corner for the big image and then cut another corner for the right front corner. I did some fairly easy cutting around the flourishes and then just glued the image down on another sheet of solid glitter paper that co-ordinates. The sentiments are embossed in a glittery blue green color that looks so nice. The big floppy butterfly is stamped with Versamark on vellum paper. I then got out my Pearl Ex and brushed 5 0r 6 colors on the image. I wiped it off and then heat set it. The butterfly trail is part of a flourish rhinestone design that I cut apart to fit my card. I used my sparkly jelly roll pen to "glitterize" (my new word) a few of the butterflies. So cool! The rust colored border is a Martha Stewart punch and it holds the card up for display. This card took a few hours to make but much of that was just the thought process that goes into creating beautiful cards!!! Have a creative day! I just did!!!
