I made a couple of these cards for thank you's for the kids up north and Jerri Ann and Randy. Then, I liked the card so well and needed a birthday card quickly, so I just changed the sentiment to Happy Birthday and it went out in the mail with the other two cards. I only have one card to make in January, so I'm planning on making some cards up this month to have on hand.
Ok...I will see if I can give credits quickly! LOL....I used this card for my inspiration....Endless ink-abilities
I really loved the circle cuts on the sides....the butterfly was a free download I got from Call Me Victorian
and I clipped it out and loaded it into my Silhouette program to do a print and cut. I cut it out twice and layered it with pop dots and added black rhinestones to the top layer. The butterfly had the brown sponging on the edges of the wings but I sponged it with Walnut distress ink to hide the white edge of the cardstock.
The music background comes from Happy Travels by Glitz....I use a lot of this paper so I've loaded it into the pattern section of my Silhouette program. The brown background paper is from K&Company and the cardstock is Rustic Cream by PaperTreyInk. The brown twine came from Wal-mart and I made the glittered circle by cutting a scalloped circle with the Silhouette and then running it through my adhesive Xyron. I poured the glittered on the sticky side and burnished it in with my finger. The font I used is called Champignon.
Remember the time I had making envelopes for the Christmas cards? Well, this is the Baronial envelope I purchased from the Silhouette store that was WAY too small for my cards. I liked the looks of it and the addition of the liner so I set about and re-made it so it would fit my 5 x 4.75 cards. The paper I used was just some cream stock I've had and the liner was printed and cut in the Silhouette using a paper from Happy Travels by Glitz.
Guess that's all! Hope you like!
