Quick and Easy HAPPY BIRTHDAY CARDS - Butterfly with White Heart Gems

I like to mix and match various colours of textured card paper. I will of course put up some more examples for you to see shortly.

My favourite card papers are Papermania Solid Cardstock Assorted Colours (6” x 6”) and Matchmakers Textured Cardstock with white core that comes in sizes 6” x 6” and 3.875” x 3.875” in Neutrals or Brights.

 You will need:

  • Anita’s Dimensions Wings in Brown (butterfly)
  • Adhesive gems in white (2 x 4mm, 1 x 3mm and 4 small hearts)
  • Brown card paper
  • Yellow card paper
  • White card paper
  • “Happy Birthday” sticker
  • Double sided tape
  • Craft foam pads (I used Stix 2mm thick)
  • Mini Daisy Punch (You can use Tonic Studios - http://direct.hobbycraft.co.uk/products-Tonic-Studios-Mini-Daisy-Punch_338461.htm)

Take white card 15cm x 30cm and fold it in half. Take a yellow card paper (size 15cm x 15cm) and using double sided tape attach it to the white card. Attach brown card (6cm x 6.5cm) to a piece of a white card (6.5cm x 7cm) so that the white card is framing the brown card and then attach the butterfly to the top. Cut out a daisy shape into the corners using the puncher. Attach the butterfly topper to the yellow card. Add “Happy Birthday” sticker to the card followed by 3 heart shaped gems. Attach remaining gems to the left of the butterfly topper. 

I wonder if you have any thoughts on this card or this design?
