A Painted Petals and Butterfly Thinlit Mother's Day Card

You will never guess where I saw this card!!!  If you said Pinterest, you are right!  I seem to spend a lot of time there. Though I am not always looking at cards, I'm looking at gardening, beading, and decorating stuff too!!!  But mostly cards!!! LOL

This card was made by Deb at Stampladee.  Her card was a thank you card but I thought I would make a Mother's Day card.

I didn't add the Strawberry Slush thick baker's twine to the butterfly because I don't have any more twine at all.  I thought I had some but I either misplaced it or ran out.  I will be ordering some soon.

The set used here is the Painted Petals set.  The flowers were stamped using Strawberry Slush and the leaves were done using Pistachio Pudding.  I also stamped the word with the Pistachio Pudding.  The words are from the All Holidays retired set.  I don't often get rid of my word sets.  

I didn't add the gold dots but I think I will be doing that after I get done with this post.  The card looks okay in person but looking at it on the screen here it does need that punch of gold.

I used the new Butterflies thinlit die.  I LOVE it.  Easy way to use the intricate dies is to put a piece of waxed paper down on your cutting plate (waxed side down), then the card stock, then another piece of waxed paper (waxed side up) and then the die.  Run it through your Big Shot and tape the cut pieces off if any are still attached.  SO quick and SO easy.  That method has made me LOVE the intricate dies again!!!

I also added some shimmer mist to the butterfly but it didn't show up in the photo.  But that's okay, you get the idea.  

This was a super fun and easy card to make.  I think I make a few more of these since they were so quick and easy.  This would make a wonderful birthday card, thinking of you card, thank you card, and a get well card too!!!  Such a fun card!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

Hello, I love your card! I have found that using the new dryer sheet technique for running framelits through the big shot a whole lot easier! If you go on YouTube, there are a few videos of demonstrators using dryer sheets! Check it out because it is a wonderful discovery!! Take care!
