A card for someone special

Today I wanted to share a simple pastel card that I made for someone special. I mailed it yesterday, so it is now on its way to the recipient...

I made it using my Cuttlebug Butterflies (from the combo set). I never, until this Sunday, thought of using butterfly embossing plaltes on their own (how crazy... only took me half a year). So I did, I ran each butterfly through the Cuttlebug and then colored them with pastel colors. I then thought it needed some dimention, so I cut and embossed two more butterflies and attached them with dimentionals to card on top of the same style butterflies.

And of course for some shimmer I added Stickles around 3D butterflies and all over the card

For the inside I printed a quote that I found on my sweet girl Jeannie blog (thanks, Jeannie for those quotes). And then used the paper left after cutting my butterflies as a stencil.

I apologize for the quality of the photo, it is much more pastel IRL and has a lot of shimmer to it...

Thank you for stopping by! See ya tomorrow!


  1. This is amazing, I love butterflies, and have never seen anything like this before. The two you popped up give great dimension. Fantastic card.

  2. Just exquisite Annie! Lovely elegant card, you can't go wrong with butterflies, can you?

  3. Great use of dimensionals and a stencil on the inside. Beautiful card.

  4. I love the soft colors and I love the butterflies!

  5. This is so pretty and elegant. And I love that sentiment.


Thank you so much for your comments! I always LOVE to hear from you!
