A Sweet Card with an Envelope Full of Butterflies

Happy Sunday to you!  Today I have one of those cards to share that is a little bit of this and a little bit of that from around your craft room.  But in the end doesn’t it turn out to be such a sweet card?

I had seen a photo of a card that had the idea of an envelope with lots of butterflies flying out from that and so I tried to capture that with the supplies I had at home.  So I started out with my Strawberry Slush cardbase and had to add a bit of texture and so I pulled out my much under-used embossing folder – the Fancy Fan embossing folder.  Then I layered on a strip of Smoky Slate cardstock edged with the Scallop Edge border punch and a piece of the Gingham Garden washi tape.  Again… why don’t I use washi tape more often??  It is so stinkin’ easy and so cute on your projects.

Finally, the center piece of the card!  I created my own envelope using one of the smallest dimensions on the Envelope Punch BoardSee?  It isn’t just for envelopes for your card!  Put your envelope together, punch out a variety of butterflies and glue them on to look like they are exploding out of the envelope.  Not hard to put together but think of how much of a smile this will bring to someone’s face when they get it from you!  Smile  See, I’m smiling just thinking of mailing it out. 

Have a wonderful Sunday!
