Today's Project

Being a mom can be hard at times...  so when there are hardships our prayer warriors help us out.  Recently a friend of mine put out a prayer warrior request so not only have I been keeping her in my thoughts and prayers, I created this card especially for her to remind her of how amazing of a mom she is!

Project Details

The Butterfly Bijou 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper did all the work for me with this card!  The Blushing Bride vertical top folding card base was layered with Magenta Madness, Blushing Bride and Calypso Coral cardstock layers.  The butterflies were die cut from the DSP using the largest of the Brilliant Wings Dies.  The intricate butterflies were die cut from Vellum cardstock using the coordinating detailed Brilliant Wings Dies.  The butterflies were gently folded upwards and adhered together with Mini Glue Dots.

The Fluttering Dies label was die cut three times from Basic White cardstock and stamped with the Strong & Beautiful sentiment which was inked in Calypso Coral and Magenta Madness.   The die cuts were stacked and adhered with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  The coordinating DSP was adhered to the coordinating cardstock layers.  The stacked die cuts were adhered to the DSP.  Pearls were adhered as the butterfly bodies for a softer look.

The inside was layered to coordinate with the card front.  The DSP scraps were torn to add softness to the Happy Thoughts sentiments inked in Calypso Coral and stamped, off-stamped on the Basic White cardstock layer.   A second piece of DSP was used to line the envelope while the sentiment from the front was similarly stamped on the Basic White Medium Envelope front and flap.
