Live Laugh Love ...

Hi Everybody,

This is a simple little card and is created with the  US A2 size matting basics die sets

The sentiment is from Crafters Companion  and I have embossed it in silver and added it to Labels Twenty Three.

The butterflies are from the Butterfly Corners set and I have added pearls to the body line.

I inked through the die before moving the card and that leaves the pattern on the wings.

I used the rest of that die to create the pocket inside for the label where you can add your signature or a greeting.

The ribbon is from my "Stash" with a flower centre over the knot.

So just an easy card to make ... and not a flower in sight ...(sigh!)

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx


  1. Love this card Christina and the idea of inking through the die
    Thanks Alison

  2. Morning Christine,
    It may be a small card but it's very pretty, love the butterflies.

  3. love the colours, that's a great idea, inking the die before you take it off the card, better for me as I'm no good at colouring in, beautiful card as all ways x

  4. Good morning Christina
    What a beautiful and fresh looking card and the butterflies are gorgeous as is the bow. So surprised you could not squeeze even one little flower in (lol) Love this one even without a flower!

  17. Well it's afternoon here and lots more snow just came. Enough. Your beautiful card reminds me of spring and could almost be good for St. Paddy's day that coming soon. Love the butterflies.

  18. Hi Christina,
    Your card is really lovely. I've just bought the butterfly corner set so to see what can be done with it is great, thanks
    Take care and best wishes

  19. This is a beautiful, and seemingly simple card, but I must be stupid as I don't know what you mean by - 'I inked through the die before moving the card and that leaves the pattern on the wings' - ? Mo
