Another Birthday Butterfly

Today is my sweet, sensitive and extremely artistic daughter, Lauren’s birthday.  She loves butterflies and has a Papillon (which means butterfly) puppy so naturally butterflies are a good choice for her card.

I used this layout on a card I did HERE last week and decided not to recreate the wheel.  I just changed the color scheme, patterned paper and sentiment and the card felt new and different.

Here’s the details 

  • The card base is Basic Black card stock and the pretty paisley patterned paper (say that 3x fast!) is a design from a Graphic 45 paper collection.
  • I followed the same method to create the card as in my other post HERE.

  • The sentiment and die are from a Clearly Besotted set and are stamped in Basic Black ink on Crushed Curry card stock.
  • I mentioned before that I buy individual color packages of sequin and create my own combinations.  That’s what I did here, mimicking the colors in the patterned paper.

  • The shaker aspect makes the card so much more colorful and fun.  I’ve been having a lot of fun recently with shaker cards HERE and HERE.

  • The inside sentiment is a non-SU stamp set.  I think sentiments are so important on cards and have been trying to collect different sets.
  • The envelope flap is embellished with the flip side of the patterned paper…that was easy!

This card is just like my sweet yet spunky Lauren!

I hope you have a wonderful Sunday.

Take care,
