Butterfly Birthday Wishes

Hi folks,

Just popping in to share the birthday card I made for my Mom. She's a big fan of butterflies so I took a quick look at the pile of Unity KOMs I had sitting on my craft desk as I was pretty sure a couple of recent ones had featured butterfly images.

card details:

  • finished size: 6 x 6 inches, white card stock base
  • patterned paper: CTMH "Live Beautifully"
  • stamps: Unity Stamp Co KOM {4/17} (butterfly), KOM {6/17} (sentiment)

I decided to make a couple of retirement cards as over the next few months/years, a LOT of my co-workers will be retiring. Best to start now so I'm not rushing at the last minute! The next one retires in August!

For this first card, I used stamped a sentiment from the No Worries Scrapbooking and Thin Cuts Bundle on one of the PML cards from the paper pack, embellished with some of the No Worries Sequins. The layout is one I lifted from one of the Little Dreamers scrapbook pages in the Idea Book!
Oh -- and the mat for the PML card? Cut from a coordinating Sapphire Enchantment Fundamentals paper. The card base is colonial white card stock and the card finishes at 6" x 6".

For this second card (4.25 x 4.4) I used Kraft cardstock for the base. Again, I embellished with the No Worries Sequins. The sentiments and die cuts are from the No Worries Card making and Thin Cuts bundle. The layout for this card was inspired by one of the No Worries scrapbooking layouts in the Idea Book.

Now - on to your next stop on the hop at Heather's Paper Playroom.
