butterfly hello...

Hello friends!!  Have a quick post today with a card that I made for the current Wednesday Stamp Club sketch challenge over at My Favorite things. 


When I saw the sketch last week I immediately knew I that I wanted to use either my MFT Dispersed Dot Die-namics die or my Fluttering Hearts Die-namics die.  Since I hadn't used Fluttering Hearts I decided to go with that one.  I positioned it on my card stock and then taped it down with some washi tape (perfect for securing dies to card stock since it is low tack) and then ran it through my Big Shot.  Because I was feeling pretty darn lazy last night I used a Studio Calico wood veneer butterfly.  I took a little pink button, threaded some twine through the wholes and then secured it to the butterfly so the thread ends would be the antennae.  I die cut some patterned paper from the Crate Paper Farmhouse 6x6 pad using a MFT fishtail flag stax die and the stamped it with the "hello" sentiment from the MFT/LJD set "On the Line".  I did secure some of the same patterned paper to the card base so it would peek through the hearts, but it is hard to see in the photo.

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; SU! Crumb Cake; PP:  Crate Paper Farmhouse; Stamps:  MFT/LJD On the Line; Ink:  Memento Rich Cocoa; Butterfly:  Studio Calico; Twine:  May Arts;  Button:  PTI; Dies:  My Favorite Things
