Butterfly Birthday Card (Jane's Doodles DT Spotlight)

Happy Friday! :o)

Today was my turn to be on the spotlight over at Jane's Doodles and I made this Butterfly Birthday Card.

I made this CAS (clean and simple) birthday card for my sister-in-law. I used my favorite Jane's Doodles stamp set, 'Butterflies' and favorite butterfly from the set. :o)

How I made this card...

I stamped the butterfly on a white cardstock paper and colored it in watercolor technique with Wilted Violet Distress Ink. After drying, I fussy cut the butterfly leaving white border around it. White highlights and the image was finished.

On a white cardstock panel, smaller than a card base, I typed a sentiment on my typewriter. It's on Croatian and it says: Happy birthday. Then I cut out circle window on the panel and glued 3-D foams on the back of the panel.

I glued a note sheet paper on the card base. I colored the note sheet paper with different white mediums, because the paper is yellowish and I didn't like it in this combination. Then I glued the panel on the card base.

Lastly, I glued 3-D foams on the back of the butterfly and glued him in the card window.

Card dimensions: 101 mm x 133 mm (4" x 5 1/4")
