A Butterfly Framelit Mother's Day Card

I have another Mother's Day card to share with you.  If you haven't made your mom a card, you don't have much time left to get it done!  So that means you will need a quick card. Today's card is very quick to do.  

The decorative paper is from the Lullaby pack.  I used Tempting Turquoise as a contrasting color.

The butterfly is from the Butterfly Framelit set.  Every since I found out to use waxed paper on these types of dies, I am just LOVIN' them!!!  I have cut out lots of butterflies.  It's so easy and quick.  Just remember to not let too many layers of waxed paper get built up in the die.  I wasn't paying attention and the next thing I knew, some of the spaces weren't cutting out all the way.  I thought maybe I wrecked my platform or even the die.  But no, it was just full of waxed paper.  Once I removed the layers of waxed paper, it cut clearly again.  I did save those layers of waxed paper.  They were smashed to hard together that they came out as one very thick piece.  I'm going to use it on a card sometime!!! Nothing goes to waste here!!!

I did have a lot of fun making this card.  Ok, not a lot of fun according to the clock.  It was fun making this card and it was a VERY quick card to make. SO in the time it took to make this card, I did have fun!!! LOL

The words were done on my computer, layered and set in place using Dimensionals.  I wanted to use the scalloped circle punch (as I almost always do) but it wouldn't fit in the area nicely so I just went simple and only had the one thin layer.  I do like it!!!

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,
