Butterfly Kisses

Here is another card I finished this weekend.  I made this card for the Sassy Studio Designs design team call.  I would really like to be part of a design team, and of course with such wonderful images, Sassy Studio Designs would be a great team to be on.  I have used Carrie and colored her with Copics.  I love dark hair and a red dress, such a classic look.  Then I'm digging through my paper stash and with a room full of paper, I can't find anything I like to go with the red I used.  So I used my Stampin' Up En' Francais background stamp with Early Espresso ink and made my own background.  Then added a few tiny butterflies using the same ink and a small clear stamp butterfly that I can't remember where it came from.  I have also used a little Tim Holtz tissue tape in browns on the top and bottom. This also has butterflies on it.  The large butterfly was made using a Cheery Lynn die.  The paper I used was not very think and I was afraid it might not cut well with out any thickness to it, so I used two layers; and there was the thought of which color would I like the best.

I ran it through and when I peeled the two papers about, the red from inside the first butterfly, stuck to the brown one and I loved the way it looked.  I think that was a great little accident.  By the time I was finished working with it I did have to glue a couple of the tiny red pieces back in place.  I have a shear cream bow made with ribbon from Michael's.  The die I used for the oval shape is from Spellbinders and I have a few cooper colored pearls around the edges.  My sentiment is Sending Butterfly Kisses to My Love, and it went inside because I couldn't decide which butterfly to cover up.


  1. Love how you made the butterfly...I had been eyeing that butterfly die debating whether to buy it or not! Love the way the red matches the dress
