Butterfly Birthday .......

Here is a card to help you send celebratory birthday wishes to a loved one.  I tried to keep it very simple with minimal materials and design elements. A softly coloured butterfly and some minimal stamping in monochrome colour is the essence here !

I started with a 5.5.x 4 inch top fold card and covered with a matt of printed paper as the base.  I then cut another slightly smaller matt from white card.

This was then stamped with Adirondack butterscotch dye ink using grungy stamps from Stampin' up. The matt was then edged with cut'n'dry foam using the same ink.

The butterfly was punched and again edged in the same dye ink had it's wings shaped and body accentuated with a couple of yellow shiny gems.  It was adhered with acrylic glue as shown.

Finally I stamped the words 'Happy Birthday' on the same printed paper in Versafine onyx black ink, matted on white card and applied with more glue onto the card.

Simple is sweet very often !  This card is available for sale in my Etsy Shop.
