Project 365, Day #55


I hope you are having a good Sunday evening!  If you are watching the Oscars, I hope you are enjoying it.  I paused it for a little bit so I could write this post.  I started making my butterfly card just before the show started.  I wanted to get done early so I could relax and watch the Oscars.  (Of course I had to squeeze in making dinner and such but that's normal.)  I love seeing everyone dressed up and all the beautiful dresses.  Who wouldn't love to get all dressed up and go to the show?!  I know I would, and I tell my girls to not forget their Mom if they ever get nominated.  : ) 

On to my butterfly for tonight.  I did another card tonight.  I started with just making a different butterfly element but thought I should add it to a card to finish it up.  Here is butterfly #55.

I started with the butterfly in Rich Razzleberry and stamped on it with Basic Black ink.  I punched out 1/16" holes around the top wings and a little flower from the bottom wings.  I layered that on Pink Pirouette card stock.  I layered that entire piece on a dry embossed piece of Basic Black card stock.  I added a couple little distressed circles to the center of the punched out flowers and finished those off with a basic rhinestone.  A little ribbon around the body, and the butterfly is done.  I wanted the card to be simple, since the butterfly had so much detail.  I used the same 1/8" basic black taffeta ribbon to tie around the front of the card.  Then a simple stamped greeting in basic black ink and the card is done.  Here is a close up of the butterfly.
