Seems lately I've been putting butterflies on every card I make! Lucky for me, this month's theme for House of Cards is butterflies! I think I can handle that! If butterflies aren't your thing, feel free to join us anyway by using our color scheme:
I've got a whole set to share with you this time. After making this card for a friend in purple I wanted to try a whole set in a rainbow of colors.
One mistake I made was that the corners of the front square extend over the edges so it doesn't stand up...I didn't realize that until they were already glued together. I also did some sewing on the original which, of course, I forgot until it was too late for these. I have to admit I like my original card better.
Each butterfly is two punched layers, with the stamped butterfly having his wings bent up. The size of each card is about 5 1/4" square, so I also made a matching envelope for each card. Thanks for taking a peek at my interpretation of the challenge and I hope you'll join us in playing along this month!
