Butterfly Birthday

You never seem to have enough birthday cards, especially one for a male.  I thought that one with butterflies would be a little more masculine that flowers.  I have several butterfly stamps and a butterfly punch, so I decided to create one using those.

Here is what I came up with…

 
 

I used the Swallowtail from Stampin Up as well as the larger butterfly from the Papillion Potpourri stamp set.  After stamping them with Chocolate Chip, I used the clear Wink of Stella to give them a little sparkle.  I used the butterfly punch to punch them out as I wanted to let their wings “fly”.  I added some black pearls for the body and then attached them using glue dots, but only in the middle.  This allows the wings to flutter.  On the larger butterfly, I used Distress markers to add some color and then again used the Wink of Stella clear to add some shimmer to the colors.  I used a Wink of Stella silver pen to add the lighter spots.

Another look…

 

A peek inside. . .

 

I embossed the sentiment from Simon Says Stamp using Chocolate Chip ink from Stampin Up and clear embossing powder.  I used an embossing folder from Anna Griffin, Pirouette. 

And one final look…

 
 

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!
