So without further ado lets get the party started. The only requirement I made for this party was that everyone had to put a butterfly or butterflies in their creation.
For my creation I made an Anniversary card for an anniversary celebration!
I love butterflies but my all time favorite is the Monarch and I love how my card turned out
I used the Picturesque Cricut Cartridge for this butterfly and cut her from black and orange card stock at different sizes ( I cut 5 but only used 3 the largest and the 2 smallest) starting at 1.5 in, 1.35, 1.25, 1.10, and 1.00 in. using my gypsy
The oval mat was cut from a Scalloped Oval Sizzix Framelits with the Cuttlebug and embossed with a cuttlebug folder called Brickyard. I inked the edges first with silver then black,I used some thin popdots to place the mat and then gave the butterflies some demention by folding back their wings stightly and sticking them down withsmall glue dots. I also litely inked around the butterflies with the silver ink I used a standard 5.5 x4.25 card base in white an orange mat 1/8th of an inch smaller a black mat 1/8 in smaller than the orange and a patterned paper( from where I don't recall but love it!) an 1/8th of an in smaller than the black mat. Added a small grey satin ribbon bow and the sentiment which is from My Creative Time Stamp set "Gift Card Sentiments in black ink.
