Safe to Post!



This is one of three similar cards that I made recently! One was a thank you card and the other two were thinking of you cards. I used the grid technique and added some buttons for interest! I really like this technique! I roughed up the edges and sponged the backgrounds of all pieces. I used a craft blade to lift the wings of the butterfly and doodled a dot dash pattern around the edges. I used a bright pink flower brad and a tiny green loopy ribbon. I made photo mattes by cutting a green scalloped square in half and used a white gel pen to add dots! The card base is 5.5 X 5.5 square and textured. Stamps are SU! and a Michael's dollar stamp. I used one of my favorite color combos...pink, cream, brown and green!

I like how you lifted the butterfly wings and the scallop corner. It adds a lot to the card.
