Butterfly Birthday

Wow - two cards posted in one day after a two week dry spell! I'm feeling pretty good about that.

A friend asked me to make a card for her aunt's 90th birthday. She didn't want 90th anywhere on the card, but said the theme of the celebration was butterflies. I wanted to use some sort of floral and butterfly theme, but still bring in some of the colors of the season. So I decided to use Stampin' Up!'s Holiday Treasures designer paper. I started to stamp a flower and butterfly image, but then remembered that I had the Cuttlebug Butterflies die and embossing folders and decided to give them a try. I really liked the look and went from there. I used a Martha Stewart edge punch and the new Nestabilities Labels #2 dies, plus another tag die from Spellbinders. I finished it off with adding some half pearls to give it a nice polished look.

Here's the recipe:
Stamps: It's Your Birthday, Elegant Greetings
Paper: Old Olive, Holiday Treasurers DSP
Ink: Riding Hood Red
Accessories: Cuttlebug Butterflies dies/embossing folders & Nestabilities Labels 2, Martha Stewart punch, half pearls, Stickles
