ICSketches #68 - Butterfly Card
For my goddaughter's first Holy Communion, I made this butterfly card. Just in case you haven't noticed, I love butterflies. And of course, I needed some inspiration for the layout and loved the simplicity of this week's sketch on ICSketches. The colours on the designer paper made it easy to select the colour scheme and I was happy to have embellishments in similar colours. The green base is from my Stampin' Up demo starter kit. Yes, I am a demonstrator. I have loved working with their products and can't believe how great the quality is. With all the work I've been doing on my other blog writing reviews and working full-time, I haven't spent nearly as much time as I had hoped to use all the neat Stampin' Up products I own. They really have a fantastic variety of scrapbooking tools and supplies. I even have an official Stampin' Up Demo store if you'd like to request more info or order supplies for your next creative project. Anyway, back to the card. I used my neglected Cricut Indie Art cartridge to cut out the butterfly at about 1 3/4", once using the shadow feature and then once in the regular cut. I really like how this one turned out but I wonder if it's missing something. What do you think?
