The Cutting Cafe - Butterfly, Fluttering By
Can you believe it? July is already here! I am trying to get ahead of the DT game by making my projects in advance. Then when I get really busy, I will already have the next project ready. Sounds good, huh? Problem with that...I already am busy! I actually started on next week's project, but for now we will show this week's finished card. This week's files from The Cutting Cafe is a butterfly theme. We could do either a butterfly treat box or a butterfly folded card. That is what I decided to do. I cut out the pieces and used a plain card stock for the card base and a matching designer paper for the topper. I added some glitzy stickers on the body and the antennae, put 2 black rhinestones on the head (for the eyes) and made white dots around the head and antennae and eyes. I added 4 white flowers in the corners and put stickers in the center of them, also. I used a Viva Decor pearl pen to put dots on the outline of the shape and used a glitter pen on the swirls on the designer paper. To finish it off, I tied pieces of purple and black ribbon and glued them to the body.
