Purple Butterfly Birthday

Hello everyone,

For the past four years my girlfriend and I organize a Crop to raise funds for her family's association.  I will be leading a group of beginner cardmakers.  We'll be making twelve cards for a variety of occasions that they'll be able to take home.  Today's card is the first in this Crop series.

The printed paper is Momenta Niamh Fitzsimons layered on Stampin' Up Perfect Plum and Pale Plum.  The Pale Plum layer was embossed with a Darice Butterflies In Corner folder and highlighted with Sakura Clear Star Gelly Roll pen.  The sentiment is Rubbernecker Happy Birthday stamped in Perfect Plum on Recollections Vanilla and layered on a butterfly punched from more Perfect Plum.  The embellishments are Crafts Rhinestone Strips.

One of my beginners really likes purple and butterflies so it was pretty straightforward to craft this card with her in mind.  I'm going to take a variety of punches, dies and sentiments so they can create cards to their own particular tastes.  The cards in this series will be samples that they can case.

I hope you enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.

  1. That's a neat card and looks simple enough that people can duplicate it or build their own similar design.
