Butterfly Birthday

Happy Easter everyone.

Yesterday I worked on a Birthday card for one of my beautiful neices.

With spring starting I wanted bright and cheerful and I got that look with the following products.

Cardstock solid light green: Papertrey Ink

Butterfly Cardstock : KaiserCraft Bubblegum Hills collection. which is available at:

I used nestibilities petite scalloped circles in my cuttlebug to do the circular cuts.

I also used 4 inch coasters purchased from Anne at Paper Patch Crafts to give the cuts

dimention. I love the coasters. Because they are 4 inches it is also easy to do a 4 inch circle with patterned paper to cover the coaster.

Silly me I didn't know you could use nestibilities or spellbinders in my cuttlebug. I had to call Anne and get instruction on how to do that. She is always awesome about teaching and giving information as well as answering all my silly questions! Now I am hooked! I now prefer the nestibilities and spellbinder dies over the cuttlebug dies. They are so much more versatile.

Back to product used.

The mini roses are made by Recollections

I also used Stickles glitter glue.

Now I need to get busy on Mothers Day Cards.

I will also be posting another card I made later today :)

Shelley Toney who is also a designer at the Patch did a fabulous tutorial on making lillies. You can find it on her blog. The link is on my blogs home page. The card I will be posting later shows my first lily attempt after watching the tutorial that Shelley T provided.
