Yesterday, I finally made a card for a wedding I'm attending today-nothin like waiting till the last minute to do this...but it was so simple to make...Just went through my stash of papers in black and white and then decided on the extra color of choice to pop out and used my Cuttlebug and butterfly folders to emboss three of them. Well, actually I cut out 6- 2 white, 1 blue, 3 black and white ones. each butterfly is back with one so it gives them more dimension. I added some sticker prisms to the center body part and used pop dots to elevate them a bit. I used a Martha Stewart border punch on the gingham checked paper and added a few silk flowers with a gemstone brad and some white satin ribbon. I found this Just Married tag in one of my many embellishments boxes and just added a little Stickles to parts of the letters and attached to some blue cardstock. Then I added Stickles- (diamond) to all the dots on the embossed butterflies to add some more bling.
On the inside I added more of the blue cardstock-edges inked in black and hand wrote my sentiment inside and added another butterfly to the lower right corner. So with my left over Cuttlebug- embossed/cut negatives- I laid them on the envelope then took two colors of my Tattered Angel Mists and sprayed a bit and removed them to come up with my mask of butterflies to match for the card and wrote Bride and Groom.
Of course I made them a gift too- and guess what it has-- Butterflies-- on it also. I have a theme going here don't I- I hope they like butterflies- I know I do. Then I went one step further and wrapped the gift in the same blue wrapping paper and stamped butterflies all over it and the words live, love and laugh - with all kinds of white and blue curling ribbon as the big bow in the middle. How cute it that. I wish I would have taken a picture of the wrapped gift- maybe tomarrow before I give it to them I will. Well have a nice day and enjoy your weekend!
