Things With Wings ~ Butterfly Card

This week's Fabulous Friday challenge at Frosted Design is Things With Wings.  If you haven't already heard, my Gypsy got very sick.  I have a replacement in process, but had to find a way to create my projects without her for a while.  I dusted off my Cricut Imagine and made this card.

I even tried Cricut Craft Room!!  I do like that I can put the images where I want them on my mat.  I also like that I can separate an image into layers and delete the pieces I don't need.

I don't really know why the brown ink stained the top of my paper or why the butterflies did not cut out.

I trimmed the butterflies.  I trimmed the border off of one of them.  I inked both of them with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo.  

I cut the card in half and adhered the first butterfly to the front.  I cut apart the banner and pop-dotted them across the top corner.  I bent up the wings of the butterfly and pop-dotted the body on top of the first butterfly.  

I used turquoise Martha Stewart glitter glue on the butterfly wings and fire opal on the body and for the spots.  I stamped "flutter" on the bottom corner of the card.

I added "soar!" in tiny alphabet stickers to the banner flags.  I adhered twine across the top of the banner and glued twine knots to the corners of the banner flags.

Here is a side view of the butterfly layers.

Thank you for stopping by today!  I hope you create a project with wings and link up with us at Frosted Designs this week!!

LOVE your butterfly card, Lori, and also like how you added the letters SOAR above it. Very neat colors too. You may want to consider sending it to The Butterfly Project ... you can see my blog sidebar for more info ... that is, unless you have a place where this is going.

P.S. Sorry to hear about your Gypsy's effectiveness wandering off into Gypsy-land. How frustrating!! I haven't yet tried CCR but it sounds like I should! I hate having to cut all the little elements in a paper-piecing when you only need certain pieces in that color.

Much love,

This is a beautiful card. I am sorry to hear about your gypsy. I haven't been using mine a lot. I have been using Cricut Craft Room instead. I hope yours is back to normal soon!
