Butterfly Happy Birthday Card using vellum
I made this birthday card for my mother-in-law today. For the butterflies, I stamped them using my cat's box fluid chalks and then dusted them with my crystal clear extra fine MStewart glitter. The ink wasn't drying quickly on the butterflies, so the glitter took care of that and I'm happy with the way they turned out! I gently bent them down the center and used a glue dot to adhere them to the card. I used the cuttlebug for the mat and used my zig 2 way pen to also add the same glitter to some of the raised parts of it. I ran the Happy Birthday phrase through my xyron and glittered it as well! and finally, a few color rhinstones. One very sparkly card :) Bring on the Bling!
