Butterfly Birthday

Boy did I love making this card.
I had googled fancy fold cards for some inspiration and came across this one http://cardsandcompany.wordpress.com/2011/06/25/flowers-flutters-fairies-fancy-fold/ and loved the shape.
The image is theodore flowers from bugaboo  coloured with prisma pencils and solvent. The main background is a fiskars texture plate, embossed in the big shot. the top half is brick and I have used a wave on the bottom for the grass. The picket fence is a marianne design, stamped with swirls and flowers and hearts. The butterflies are joy crafts dies, inked edges and glittered bodies and attached to a piece of acetate to make them flitter. The trees were cut on the cricut and inked and stamped with a clevercut stamp, the cloud background was made by hand cutting some cloud shapes and chalking round them. The bear and the fence have been glued with pinflair glue for a bit of dimension.

  2. Sally, thank you so much for mentioning my blog on your post. I have had quite a few referrals which I really appreciate. LOVE your take on the "stand up" card - it is very cute. The trees on the side panels are perfect.
