Butterflies & Flowers Birthday Card

I decided to make a shaped card to share with you today.  Shaped cards are so simple with the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge.


I cut the shaped card at 4 3/4" (This made a card that is larger than the standard A2 size).  I used the pink, orange, and blue from the "Soda Pop" collection from Recollections.  The purple was from my scrap stash.  The butterfly was cut at 2" from the same page.  Glitter glue was applied to the purple highlights of the butterfly and the "4" was taken from a Studio G sticker pack.


The cut out circle from the center of the flower on the front of the card was used as the center for the inside of the card.  It was stamped using black "Archival" ink and a Happy Birthday stamp from an unknown source.  Butterflies were punched using a Martha Stewart punch and adhered with a Zig 2-way glue pin.


Thanks so much for taking time to stop by today.  Remember to take some time to enjoy the little things that come into your life today.  Enjoy the video.
