Butterfly Card

I think this little bug on this card looks like a dragonfly and not a butterfly but I've been told that it IS A BUTTERFLY! 
What do you think?

For inspiration I used the Card Making with Cricut (Annie's Attic: Paper Crafts) book which is a great price at Amazon right now for $9.51...great buy!  Anyway, that book is great and gives you all types of occasion cards and you can see the one I "scraplifted" right on the front cover.  I used DCWV Mango Frost Stackwhich are fun and brilliant colored papers. I added a few touches with a Gelly glitter pen and added a little bit of bling.  The cartridge used was the Cricut Walk In My Garden Cartridge. I also used the Swiss Dots Embossing Folder from Cuttlebug which you can see below.  I just ran the circle through my Cuttlebug and there ya have it!  Love this folder and use it often.
I really think this card making book by Annie's Attic is a great idea book...give you how to's and the cards are good starting off points for your own creations.  Annies Attic also came out with a similar book filled with scrapbooking layouts and is available for a very good price here: Scrapbooking with Cricut (Annie's Attic: Paper Crafts)  I rarely follow the ideas to a "T" but like I said....they are a wonderful starting off point!
I also save this design out on my Gypsy so I have the right sizes to whip out additional cards when the need arises!


  1. It's a hybrid! I think it's a really neat looking card and especially love the shimmer!

  2. The shimmer that you gave the card with the jelly glitter pen made me smile. I use the Swiss Dots embossing folder alot.


Thank you so much for leaving a comment. I appreciate the time it took you to leave me a note and I will enjoy reading it. Happy Crafting!
