When we make cards there is such a lot of card that we discard.
But with just a little thought and some planning ahead we can put it to good use and make some pretty cards.
I needed some butterflies for another card that I was making and I used the Spellbinders Les Papillions Two
I used the solid base to the die and rather than just cut it out randomly I carefully positioned one on some card that I would use for my top layer
Once cut and embossed this negative piece was the piece I used for this card. I also cut another piece in pink and used it underneath as a shadow but the butterflies have been kept safely for the next card
The pink card in the negative space says "Happy Birthday" and is from AnnaMarie Designs
The embossing folder is from Crafters Companion
I used a large flourish from Want2Scrap for the butterfly trail
And there is my free sentiment again from Simply Cards and Papercrafts Magazine stamped and embossed at the bottom of the card.
It really was that simple to make this card and yet the result is very pretty
More tomorrow ...
