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.
