Fluttering Butterfly Birthday

 Hello crafters!  This card was made for the wife of one of my nephews whose birthday falls this month. Now, would she be considered my niece even though she is not a blood relative?  I've wondered about this for some time.

To make this card I began with creating the base card in yellow. This base was then layered with black card stock using dimensional tape. Next, my sentiment was computer generated on white and then adhered to the black layer. The frame was created in yellow and popped onto the prepared base card with dimensional tape. The cut-out butterfly was die cut in black. This was adhered to a solid die cut butterfly which was created using vellum stamped in white with a floral design wood stamp that I had on hand. The finished butterfly was adhered to the frame and my project was done.

 I loved the look of the butterfly with the vellum floral "underside". I think it added some elegance to the entire card.

 Here are the products used in the making of this card:
