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!
