May as well make it a Lucky 7, ehhhh??!
This will be a quick post (for me!). It's another Simple Simon card -- done with embossing (Cuttlebug) the swirl pattern onto a pre-made card. Then I cut the butterfly and its shadow, using the Cricut Cake Basics cartridge. You'll note that I added antennae -- jewelry wire -- onto which I put Swarovski crystal beads. I dressed up the butterfly by applying Stickles glitter glue (I lovethat stuff!!!) and affixing a computer-generated sentiment.
This card would be easy for me to mass produce, as I usually have a flock of butterflies hanging around my Craft Loft. Whenever I have scraps leftover, I do a quick-cut of a butterfly and I keep them to use on random quick cards whenever needed.
(I know! You'd think I'd cut Monkeys! Or that my blog would be named "CardButterfly" instead of CardMonkey!! Speaking of that ... I just picked up the cutest monkey Cuttlebug die. You'll be seeing that cutie popping up soon!)
BLOG CANDY, Card 7: Additions to your "thank you ensemble" ... you'll be getting a thank you rubber stamp (mounted on wood), the Cuttlebug Thank-You embossing folder, and ... some butterflies!
