I wanted to make a card for one of my uncles -- was thinking of a "Praying for You" or "Thinking of You".
Now I know, those cards are not very difficult cards to make usually....
until I tried to make it masculine.....
and include a butterfly stamp at the same time...
Now THAT proved to be a tough one to make!!!!
I ended up with a pretty Clean and Simple card, which wasn't what I had in mind when I first started...
I did manage to use a butterfly stamp on the card and still have it look masculine!!!
That's an accomplishment!!! :)
Using some orange/brown cardstock, I embossed the border with one of the "Just My Type" embossing folders. Then I layered the cardstock on white and finally on some black cardstock. Using the same orange/brown cardstock, I stamped one of the "Fanciful Butteflies" stamps from Sweet Stamps and then cut it out with scissors. Finally I stamped a "Thinking of You" sentiment on the card that I picked up from a Michael's bin. I'm happy with the way it turned out...hopefully it'll brighten my uncle's day. :)
