Hello Butterfly Cards

Butterfly Cards Pebbles Inc Garden Party Collection by Juliana Michaels

Spring is here and with it comes the return of butterflies. One of the few insects that I just love! Today, I have a couple of butterfly cards to share with you using these fabulous 3D butterfly stickers from the Pebbles Inc Garden Party collection.

I just love the fan folded look of these and the wire antenna! So much texture and dimension. To dress them up a little more, I added the Pebbles Basics Glitter Candy Dots. I don't believe these are available anymore, but any bling would work. And if you don't have glittered ones, maybe try adding some with a bit of Ranger Glossy Accents and glitter!

I thought it would be nice to add a sentiment to the inside of the card as well. It is a die cut from the Garden Party Die Cut Cardstock Shapes pack that I trimmed into a banner shape and then layered with a scrap of patterned paper.

I created the floral background behind the butterfly using a couple of die cuts from the Garden Party Die Cut Cardstock Shapes pack as well. I cut them apart and arranged them on the background so that you could still read the "Hello" sentiment and in a way that once the butterfly was positioned on top of them you couldn't see the chop job!

This is another butterfly card I created using the same ideas as I shared above for the butterfly, inside sentiment and floral background behind the butterfly.

Let me leave you with this photo of the first butterfly I saw this spring. He loved the blooming crab apple in my Mom's back yard!
