Butterfly LeverCard

I love how this card looks, but oh my it was a bit a work to put together. All together I used 7 different patterned sheets of paper. Almost everything is on one layer except for the pink flowers, I sponged there edges to give them a depth effect and pop dotted them to give them dimension. The butterfly on the front looks like it is in flight, the lever part of this card is a really cool effect.

Butterfly Card

Here is a simple but elegant Thinking of You card!

It's been a long time since I did a color challenge so I thought I'd use it for this card. The butterfly silhouette is from the Everyday Pop-Up Cards Cricut cartridge and like always I pop-dotted it because I love that raised effect. Too bad you cant see it on the daisies but I did add clear glitter pen to the flowers it made them look so pretty.

Birthday Flowers

Hi there,
Back again with another card to show off, I *CASE'D this card from It's a Stamp Thing. What really caught my eye was how well the Elegant Lines embossing folder went with the stamped image from the Bordering on Romance Set. I did do a few things differently like the color of paper and I used baker's twine instead of ribbon. Also the direction of the image and added I a tiny little butterfly in the top corner. Unfortunately the photograph made the coral look much more orangery than it really is.

Thanks for visiting,

Twins 1st Birthday

Hi Everyone, hurray it's TGIF! And here is a project I've been working on for twin boys Owen and Hudson's 1st Birthday. There theme is Sesame Street and there favorite character's are Elmo and Cookie Monster. Both of their faces are on this invitation, one face on the front and one face on the back.

For some dimension I raised Elmo's nose with pop dots and Cookie Monster's eyes are pop dotted as well. I kept all the colors primary, true to what Sesame Street has been for years. I hope these invites are a big hit. I can't wait for the twins party at the end of June. Leave some love :)
