Butterfly Birthday Card

Hi hi,

I hope you are having a wonderful weekend! I'm relaxing, making cards and tidying up the house. No other plans, and I'm enjoying it! :-)

The color inspiration for this card came from the sky here in Holland one evening. It went from pink to this really nice blue-gray color.

I started by stamping the Butterfly Wallpaper and clear embossing it. Then I added Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick and Weathered Wood distress ink over it. The text stamped in Pumice Stone is from Cloud 9. A scrip stamp from Hero Arts is very high on my wish list... ;-)
I did the same with the sentiment, stamped the Envelope Pattern over it, matted with white and added it to the card with pop dots.

I also decorated the inside of this card and the envelope with the butterfly stamp from the Butterflies and Lace set.  Here's a picture of the inside.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! :-)

Love, Tone


  1. I love the butterflies that carried over onto the inside of the card! Beautiful work!

  2. Hi, Tone! So glad to visit here and see your cute blog. I wasn't able to leave a comment on your most recent post, so you may want to check it out. Love that sweet graphic design with the heart. This one is lovely, too - great how you did the inside to carry out the design. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I like it here and shall return!
