Apologies in advance for the poor photography. I had to make a birthday card for a teacher at my son's school a week ago. This is not uncommon. Last fall I was asked to make 28 cards (14 birthday, 14 anniversary) within a week. That was pressure. (Mental note, start making more birthday and anniversary cards to avoid the same issue this fall)
Onto the card I am sharing today....
This card came together really really fast. Love when that happens. And I love how it looked. I also found out later that the teacher loves butterflies...Double bonus!
I used the PTI large butterfly and small butterfly dies (this was pre-Beautiful butterfly dies). The base butterfly was die cut from vellum. The others from PP. Brown glittered bling forms the butterfly bodies.
I zigzag stitched the borders before I adhered it to the card base. I "sew" love the effect stiching on cards makes.
The happy birthday stamp is PTI. Ribbon is from my stash.
Finished card is 5 x 7 since 40 families needed to sign!
Love this color combo....
This layout is also one that would be easy to replicate.
