Birthday Flights of Fancy

I have a quick and easy Birthday card to share today. It was made at my Langley Stampers club.

I cut a pink mat  from cardstock and then punched a scalloped oval and die cut some butterflies, from the center of that mat.
I then embossed a piece of white card with a swirly EF that has butterflies within the swirls.
Mounted the embossed panel onto what was left of the pink card mat, and the attached all that to a white card base.

The butterflies were pop dotted over the embossed butterflies on the embossed swirly panel. I hope this gives a feeling of movement to the card. A wee bit of bling was placed on the centers of each butterfly.

Happy birthday was stamped onto a snippet of white card and then punched with a Stampin' Up scalloped oval. This was placed off center onto the pink scalloped oval and pop dotted forward as well.

Easy Peasy!

  4. Wonderful, soft colours! Love it!

  5. This is so pretty. I love the light and airy feel it has. I must remember that trick of off-setting the sentiment. I spend ages trying to centre mine on a backing and it is never just right! Kate x

  6. So beautiful, it has a very delicate look to it.

  17. Sometime the easier cards are the most beautiful and this is one of them.

  18. How pretty Mauree and I love the soft and pretty pink of the butterflies against the white embossed background, and I love the way you have offset the white scalloped sentiment mat over the pink scalloped layer underneath. x

  19. Oh this is really feminine and pretty Mo.
    Love it.
    Hugs, Sarn xxx

  20. Very sweet and pretty. The embossing folder is lovely.

  21. Really pretty card Mo - love the gentle look you achieved. And, very clever how you 'gutted' the pink mat to get maximum use out of it. And the scalloped shapes 'off centre' to one another is a neat twist as well.
