Let Your Dreams Take Flight

Saturday, January 28, 2012


I remember a long time ago Dawn McVey made a butterfly with Fancy Flourishes.  While I was playing around with the dies today, I thought how beautiful the butterfly would look made 3D with the dies.  I love it.  Good luck getting it into an envelope though:)

  1. Very pretty butterfly and card Kara, now I think I have more dies to add to my cart.

  2. Kara, your butterfly is beautiful but can certainly see why it would be difficult to place in an envelope. So sweet of you to offer up a Thank You set as I've seen many cute cards using those two stamps.

  3. Gorgeous! I love this concept. I guess this a hand-deliver only card? haha. The sentiment compliments it perfectly (Happy Trails has been growing on me lately, I may have to snag it, tee hee!). =)

  9. Oh, this is stunning. When I first saw the dies, I didn't think they were necessary. Now, I see what they can do. Love the tiny peek of Dearest Jane paper I spy at the bottom. I think this card will be hand delivered to one super lucky person.

  10. Those flourishes do make a very elegant and intricate butterfly indeed!! Love the colour combo here...I think chocolate/brown goes with just about any colour - right!? You could use a bigger envelope with some cardboard backing to protect the flourishes...or keep it for the hand-deliver pile. ;)
