Card A Day Blog Post: Mother's Day

Hi there, thanks for stopping by. It's time again for another post from me at the Card A Day Blog. This week's theme is Mother's Day. Here is the card I made.

This was a pretty simple card to make actually. I first started off by making several butterflies in blue, yellow and peach using my Cricut, and the Sure Cuts A Lot program. I made each one about 1 inch wide, then ran them all through my Cuttlebug in the Swiss Dots folder to make little embossed polka dots on them. I added two Darice Adhesive Back Acrylic Gems to the middle of them.

For my background image, I used the A2 Butterfly embossing folder from The Paper Studio on a piece of white cardstock cut to 5.25" x 4", then attached it to my card base. I then adhered a piece of peach checkered ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon vertically on the left side of the embossed cardstock, then adhered three butterflies to the ribbon. On the inside I stamped the words Happy Mother's Day using a stamp I had in my collection.

I hope you like my little butterfly card, and I would really love to hear what you think by leaving a comment. Make sure to drop by the Card A Day Blog everyday for some great card making inspiration  For those of you challenge lovers, we also have our monthly challenge, so go check it out.
