Butterfly Set

Hi. 
Back from a wonderful week in sunny Florida.
Great family time.  Boys' first airplane ride and trip to the beach.
What a hoot seeing their reactions to new things!
Today I am sharing a card set I made for someone. 
She wanted a gift to take to a female missionary in Mexico.
She liked the card I made HERE so I decided to make a set of 5. 
There is no sentiment so they could be used for English or Spanish.
The butterflies were stamped and colored with Prismacolor pencils.
I LOVE how the colors pop on Kraft paper.
I added some glitter glue to the butterflies' bodies and in the swirls.





Here's what the inside looks like:


I made a box and stamped and colored it to coordinate the cards:


The box pattern and instructions can be found HERE
It starts right away, so it can make you jump if your volume is high.
I have used this video several times and it always turns out cute!


Supplies:
Stamps: butterfly by Stampin Up, Flourishes from ?
Ink: Memento
Paper: cardstock
Other: various glitter glues, colored pencils and mineral spirits, UTUBE video by jacque1263


Thanks for stopping by today!

I love this too :). The result with one stamp and different colors is amazing and gorgeous. I am always in awe of the way you create the inside of your cards; a lovely finishing touch.
I hope your son had a great birthday party!

What cute cards, Kelly. I love the way to colored them and framed them. Very nice work. The insides of your cards are always so nice, too.
