Thank You - Butterfly Card
I'm sure, by now, that's it's no surprise to most of you that I love butterfly's and vintage music sheet paper. :)
I stamped a background stamp with blue ink onto blue cardstock. I tried spritzing it with pink glimmer mist, but it kept jamming up, and would only drip . So I made the best of it and used a make up sponge to dab the thin ink around the paper. I used a Fiskars Threading Water punch for the side border. - If you don't already have this punch, get it today. I'm serious. This is my most used border punch and I uses it on everything, from cards to rosettes and tussie mussies. - Even the roof on this Vintage inspired, Christmas House!
Next with a Fiskars Scalloped Circle punch, I made a template that I traced in the center of the card and carefully cut out with precision scissors. The butterfly are made with a Martha Stewart punch and I could not help myself in adding them to the inside of the envelope so it looks like they are ready for flight!
The Robins Nest Mini- Dews for the center of the Butterfly's and some Diamonds Drops for the corner of the card. The music sheet was added to the entire inside of the card, and a Fiskars Rectangle hand punch, made the slots on the top and bottom of the card to hold the pink and white bakers twine in place. A little bit of glitter glue accented the card and hand written "Thank You"
