Mother’s Day Butterflies

Mothers Day card

I hope your Monday has started off well!

I have been visiting my mom for the past week.  I brought some of my Stampin’ Up! supplies with me so that I could do some creating.  I made this card yesterday for my sister for Mother’s Day.  I didn’t think I had a Mother’s Day sentiment in any of the sets that I brought so I was happy when the set Crazy About You had just what I wanted!

I started out with a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  Using my sponge daubers and the colors Pacific Point and Garden Green, I randomly applied color.  Although I starting sponging off of my paper first, I still got some of the circles of color that you see.  It doesn’t really matter with this card because that won’t be seen – just the beautiful shades of color.

Using another piece of Whisper White, I cut out two butterflies using the Butterflies Thinlits (in the Occasions catalog) and then stamped my sentiment.  I glued this piece to my colored piece using a 2 way glue pen so that I could really get glue around the outline of the butterflies.  I cut two more butterflies out of Pacific Point and adhered them to the card with pieces of Stampin’ Dimensionals down the center of each one.  The rhinestones added a nice amount of sparkle.

I forgot to bring envelopes with me so I left the top butterfly as is.  If I had needed to send the card, I would have trimmed it off but I think it looks nice “flying” off the card.

Enjoy the rest of your day!
