Silhouette Butterflies

Hi guys. It's been quite the busy time around here the last two weeks....and my crafting table has had to take a backseat. On January 11th, we were blessed with a beautiful and healthy baby boy. :) It's been two weeks of all things baby -- but we're having so much fun! :) He's such a good baby...doesn't take a whole lot of work, but he does have priority...and he's showing us who's the new boss around here! LOL but that's okay -- we'll let him rule the roost for awhile. :) Those adorable smiles we get in return make it all worthwhile! :)

So anyways, I've been getting a little bit of card making in the last few days. After all, babies do spend most of their life sleeping...so there's a bit of time to do other stuff now and then. :) I've always loved cards that had Silhouette stamping on them. For some reason, I always had floral images in my mind when I thought of this type of card, and because I didn't have any silhouette floral stamps I never could try it. Then I saw a card on Pinterest (love love love that website!) that used butterfly stamps for the silhouette images. Of course, if it has a butterfly, I'm gonna love it! So I decided to try a similar card using my "Fanciful Butterflies" stamps from Sweet Stamps.


I absolutely LOVE the way this card turned out!!!! It's not too complicated to reproduce (I mass produced using different colors and sentiments) and yet it's striking. There's just something about the Black, White & one-other-color combination. :) Always a classic! :)


 The squares are popped a bit with dimensional foam. (not sure if you can see it from this angle)...


I decided to also decorate the envelope that goes with the card. Nothing too fancy...just a bit of stamping with the "Fanciful Butterflies" stamp...to bring it together with the card. 



That's for dropping by my blog today. Leave me a comment and I'll come visit your blog as well...
And now I'm off for some more baby time... ta ta! :)


supplies used:
