Birthday Card using Sentimentals

Hiya. Thought I would make my friend a Birthday card w/ the cart I won --- Sentimentals!
Thanks, again, Michele!! :-)

Both pix can be enlarged by clicking on them! :-)



Betcha thought the blue was showing thru the butterfly, eh? Nope! But I did use double-sided cardstock. Only I flipped the butterfly on both the card and envelope, to show the opposite side colour.
:-) You can see it better in this pic:-

Here's the recipe:-

Cricut Sentimentals cartridge

Envelope:-
p. 46 {buttrfly}[envelope]

Card:-
p. 46 {buttrfly}[card]

Butterfly:-
p. 46 {buttrfly}- main part
p. 46 {btrfly-s}- wings

Sentiment:-
Thinking of You
p. 48 {owl}Phrase

I used gluestick, attaching the wings to the butterfly; hence, glue was sticking thru the filigree. I then sprinkled Martha Stewart glitter on top, allowing the glitter to adhere to the areas inside the butterfly. I thought it was a nice touch. Then I added some rhinestones to the body of the butterfly. Pop-dotted the butterfly inside the card. Added seed beads to the antennae. The butterfly on the front of the card was "stickled".

Hopefully, my friend will like it.

Note:- you'll notice on the envelope --- 4 slits on the sides.
Tip:- when scoring (I used my new Martha Stewart scoreboard!), try not to score on the slits. I didn't realize that it was an actual slit, and not just an embossed score area. :-

Decided to change it up a bit:- added a computer-generated sentiment......

  1. Thank you for visiting my blog and the comment. I have come for a visit and I love this card. you have inspired me to do another card for a young girl who had an accident. I have only been bitten by the cricut bug for just a year now but it is so awesome. I love meeting people who have cricuts, they always are such awesome people. TFS
