Curly Cute Butterflies

I love butterflies!  One of the things I would like to do this spring is to buy a chrysalis or four!! And watch it go through it's phases.  Wouldn't that be fun?  Well, I think it would be anyway.  

I saw a card like this on Pinterest.  It was made by Chunyuan at Dahlia Memories.  I think the butterfly punch she used was one of the Martha Stewart ones.  I used the Stampin' Up! one and made it work.  My circled had to be a little bigger (2-1/8") to make it work but if you don't compare the two cards no one will ever know!

It's just such a pretty card and easy to make too.  Just punch the butterflies and then center them inside the circle punch and punch out the circle.  I then punched out 2" circles using the Brights pack of decorative paper.  Those were put together using Dimensionals.  

The words are from the Curly Cute set.  Once I got the words on I set the butterfly circles in place.  I put the  yellow and green ones on first.  I just used tape only on the back.  For the Melon Mambo butterfly I used tape on the upper part of the circle and Dimensionals on the bottom .  

And lastly I added some rhinestones to the bottom corner and that was it.  Very easy.  Very quick and oh SO fun!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

Wanda, I love this idea of using the negatives and filling them with designer paper. I also love butterflies and it is fascinating to watch them grow. We do it at school each year and I never grow tired of watching the process.
