Personalized 65th Birthday Card

This personalized 65th birthday card is a full-size card, approximately 5.5" by 8.25". The lettering is and numbers are from the Cricut Storybook cartridge. The large butterfly is from the Cricut Home Accents cartridge and embossed using the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder and my Big Shot. The smaller butterflies, which are my favourite, are from the Cricut Indie Art cartridge. I inked many of the edges using brown ink and also inked the raised dots on the butterfly to make them pop. The ribbon is from the dollar store along with the adhesive gems.

While I do like how the card turned out, I realized I'm not a big fan of the large butterfly. I think I would have like the one on the Cricut Stamping Solutions better. Oh, well. I made this at the request of a co-worker and she was happy with it. So that makes me happy, too!

I cut out the second butterfly in different sizes to find one that fit well so I ended up with three extra butterflies. I decided to use them to embellish the inside of the card and the outside of the envelope.
