Bow and Butterfly Cards

Wednesday, February 04, 2015

For Some of the people I had to get presents for, for Christmas, I decided to make some birthday cards.

I had bought the My Favorite Things bow die and was loving it, so decided to make some cards with it. 

I made some cards with bows and some with butterflies as the main focal point.

For the sentiment, I used the Clearly Besotted Fabulous Fuchsias stamp set and used the sentiments from that. I stamped them on a label from Clearly Besotted Lovely Labels. 

At the bottom of the card I decided to use the Clearly Besotted Decorative Edges to break up the cards a bit. 
As the cards were looking a bit plain, I added some more butterflies and flowers to the bottom of the card and then some pearls to the top.

 For the butterflies, I stuck one butterfly down to the card and then stuck another one on top in a different colour and made it so it would be 3D. 

Some of the cards I added some patterned paper under the decorative edge part to add some more colour but some I left plain. 

Also some of the cards I made the kraft card smaller so that there would be a border of white around the outside but some of the cards I made without any border. 

Paper -  My Minds Eye Kate & co, In Bloom and Follow Your Heart and Crate Paper Flea Market | Stamps - Clearly Besotted  Fabulous  Fuchsias | Bow die - My Favorite Things Beautiful Bows | Butterflies - Martha Stewart punches | Flowers - Martha Stewart 3 in 1 hydrangea punch | Labels - Clearly Besotted  lovely Labels | Scallop edges - Clearly Besotted  Decorative Edges Shallow | Pearls - Hobbycraft.

These cards are quite simple and not too fussy but I love the bows!

Hope you are having a great week.
