CAS Butterfly


Here is a recent card I made for a Quick Cards call, it didn't get accepted but how I can be upset when it only took anbout 5 minutes to make? ;) I love this design though and will use it again when I am in a pinch for a card! Simply add a rhinestone flourish* to a Pure Luxury White card base, and add a cut and colored butterfly, traced with glitter pen, from "A Beautiful Life" with a pop dot. Use markers to ink up the greeting, giving it a two toned effect.


*I get these at Hobby Loby when they are on sale, they are a little more pricey of an embellishment but add so much "WOW", and look at all the money it saved me here on cardstock layers and DP! LOL!

Great idea. It's quick and simple, but very elegant. And all that bling is sure to make someone feel special. I am loving the intricate border punches, so I might try one more layer of color underneath and add a lacy border to the white...I'll let you know how it goes. :)
