Butterfly Basics Make a Clean and Simple Birthday Card

It's time for a Clean and Simple card! As I explore all my new products from my Occasions Catalogue pre-order, I have so many ideas floating around in my cranium that I have difficulty deciding what to do next! I was dying to use more of my Butterfly Basics images, especially the smaller lacy butterfly so I imagined a more Clean and Simple design.

  • The back panel Design Series Paper is from Best Year Ever, which is a Sale-A-Bration product. That means that during Sale-A-Bration, (January 6 - March 31, 2015) you can earn it free with every $60 spent in one order!  Awesome!
  • Don't you love the script on the sentiment? It is also from the Butterfly Basics Stamp Set, available January 6.  
  • The stamped lacy butterfly coordinates with one of the Thinlits in the Butterflies Thinlits Dies so it is easy to die cut it.
  • To make the looped linen thread behind it, just wrap the linen thread around all four fingers of one hand three times.  Remove it from your fingers and give one end a twist so you have a figure 8.  Add a glue dot to the middle of the twist and glue down on your paper.  Adjust the loops the way you want them.  Very easy to do.
  • You'll notice a little Gorgeous Grunge in the background, stamped in Coastal Cabana.  Then I added the honeycomb textured image from Butterfly Basics in Sahara Sand for contrast.

It's Tuesday and time for more:
