Butterfly Birthday

My mother-in-law’s birthday is on Thursday, and as you can see by this card, she’ll be turning 91. She lives alone and is doing awesome!

I’ve had this “Garden Delight” set by Inkadinkado for quite a while and I finally used it. I stamped the butterfly on a variegated blue cardstock from Die Cuts With a View with Versafine Black Onyx ink, embossed it with clear embossing powder, and cut it out (without the antennae!) Then I cut a piece of white cardstock two and a half inches by three and a half inches. I stamped the butterfly partially in the corner. Then I stamped the tips of one of the flowery stamps several times in the opposite corner. After it was completely dry, I embossed it with a Diamonds in the Rough Cuttlebug folder. I mounted it on a piece of black, and then on a matching piece of the variegated blue. I folded the wings up a little bit, and used Pop Dots on the body to mount it. I added a thin strip of black about a third of the way from the bottom. The sentiment was printed on my computer.

Thanks so much for looking, and I hope you’ll come back and visit again soon!
