Butterfly Parade

This is the other card that I made for our Project Day.  I seem to be using these My Favorite Things dies more than any other.  They make beautiful, easy cards :)  I wanted a subtle pattern on the front so I used a stamp by MFT called Simply Circles to make a tone on tone background.

An acetate window added some interest but also caused a problem because you could see the backs of the butterflies on the inside of the card.  Cutting an additional black lacy butterfly for the reverse sides fixed the problem easily.  

I tried some other color combinations, and I like them but I wish I'd used a bigger sentiment stamp on these. 

Thanks so much for stopping by :)  Have a great weekend!

Stamps: MFT Simply Circles & Assorted Sentiment Stamps

  1. These are gorgeous Janet! A wonderful design and I love the way you've coloured the butterflies. The cards are all fabulous but I like the sentiment on the first card. Have a great weekend. Debra x
