Happiness butterfly card - Mojo Monday 279

by - Wednesday, February 06, 2013



Yesterday was one of my sister in law's birthday and I decided to make a card for her using the Lastest Mojo Monday sketch 279.

I decided to break out the sewing machine and stitch around the outside of the layers and it worked out great. It is something so easy to do if you can use a sewing machine but for some reason, I couldn't manage it. 
I have been making good use of my Clearly Besotted butterfly dies and used the small one on the card.








Papers - Basic Grey Lemonade | Stamps - Amy R Best Birthday Wishes and My Pink Stamper Fabulous Phrases | Ribbon - American Crafts | Border Punch - Fiskars | Butterflies - Clearly Besotted die | Gems- Hobbycraft | Gllitter - Stickles Star Dust.

This is the sketch.



Also I made my sister in law a notebook and decided to personalise it too. 

I used the American craft cardstock as the base to keep it sturdy as I took the original front off the notebook.

On one of the papers from the American Crafts Dear Lizzy Neapolitan papers is a picture of a jar with hearts on it so used that as the main image.

I also added some glitter to the hearts in the jar and some glossy accents to the heart at the top to make them shine.

At the bottom of the notebook, I added a wooden flower embellishment and used some foam alphabet stickers for her name.











Card - American Crafts | Paper - American Crafts Dear Lizzy Neapolitan | Border punch - Martha Stewart doily lace punch | Ribbon - American Crafts | Foam Stickers - Papermania | Wooden flower - Kars | Glitter - Stickles star dust | Glossy Accents.


I have been rearranging my craft space so I better go and tidy up the mess I have created.

See you soon.
