Butterflies for Betty

ModSquad Challenge:Beautiful Butterflies

A birthday card for a friend’s mom who’s turning 95 this month and playing along with the ModSquad Challenge hosted by Judy with a butterfly theme. The sponsor is Gina K Designs so I pulled out my Birthday Blessings stamp set since I wanted a die for my butterfly. I created a partial rainbow background using GKD inks and then stamped my butterflies from the stamp set. The green butterfly was stamped in versamark ink and sprinkled pinches of different color embossing powders to heat set. The top butterfly I stamped in black ink and sponged on the same inks as the background. It’s popped up on another rainbow butterfly that was stamped in clear embossing powder but it didn’t really work out like I hoped so it stayed hidden. Added a little bit of bling for it’s tail winds. This is a mini slimline card. 3-1/2″ x 6″ and the envelope was made using patterned paper and following Jenny Card Designs’ envelope directions.

Looking forward for warmer weather this week. We still have patches of snow in our yard. I would like to put the snow shovel away for the season but know it’s way to early to do that.

Thanks for stopping in for a peek.

  1. Cute card! Love the ink blending and the butterflies flying around. I haven’t made this size, yet, but it is definitely on my list.

  2. I forgot to say, wish this person a very Happy Birthday! I love making cards for people turning large numbers. They are special.

    1. Thanks, Lisa, I wasn’t sure if I should use a more natural butterfly since the background is colorful. I like this mini slim line size much better than the larger one but more than likely will stick with A2 size.

    1. Thanks Bonnie, I definitely like this mini slimline size much better than the #10 business envelope size.

  3. How beautiful, I love your sponging. Really makes those butterflies pop. Mini slimlines are one of my favorite sizes. Great take on the challenge, thank you so much for participating with us over at the Mod Squad!!
