CAS Butterfly Birthday Card

I'm usually glad my daughter doesn't read my blog. Having a busy job, four kids, sports, and school activity chauffering doesn't leave much time for reading her mother's blog. So I can post the card I'll be giving her this month. I loved the soft color palette at the Color My Heart Color Dare. The colors gave me the idea of butterflies.




I used Cricut Design Space to cut the white embossed panel with the butterfly cutouts and matching butterflies. If you have the Cricut Explore and the Artbooking and Artistry cartridges you may use my cut file.  I love the Confetti dots embossing folder because you get fewer dots in one area which is great for stamped sentiments. I popped up the white panel but adhered the solid butterflies by pushing them down onto the base layer. The cut butterflies were adhered with the wings folded up a little and a rolled up glue dot under the main body part.

I also made a second cards with the opposite colors:


Thank you for visiting! May God bless your crafting and bless the recipients of your creations!

You did a great job with these cards. Thank you for joining our Challenge a few weeks ago at Word Art Wednesday. We have a week left on our current Challenge and I hope you join us again. Leaving you with the inspiration of God's Word in Psalm 84:11 and it says, "For the LORD God is a sun and shield; The LORD gives grace and glory; No good thing does He withhold from those who walk uprightly." Have a blessed week.
