Butterfly Thank You cards




My husband's grandpa asked me to make 10 thank you cards for his lady friend who'll be 80yrs old and she wanted some thank you cards. I told him I would make them for her. I made 5 of each set using 2 different color patterns.
I started with SU basic black as the base. I layered with GP white cs and ran it through the CB leaf branch folder. I then cut a strip of SU basic black cs, I also cut another strip of GP white cs, used the MS lace border punch. I then used a small piece of tacky tape for each side of ribbon and adhered it to the white strip. The strip is attached with 3D squares. I used the Sizzix frame scallop oval die with SU basic black and GP white cs. I stamped the butterfly with black stazon on the GP white cs as well as the sentiment. The frame is adhered with tiny 3D dots and the inside is adhered with medium 3D squares. I then added a small self adhesive pearl to the butterfly and added 2 mini gold self stick beads to each corner. I also added white dots around the frame with a white opaque pen. I made the exact same card using old olive ink & paper and added olive rhinestones.
