Butterflies 9 - two cool 

CASEd from Maggie Patterson at The I Love Papercrafts Blog.

I've wanted to try this card ever since I received this swap from Maggie Patterson at Leadership.  It's so simple and clean, but so cute!  It makes a perfect card for my "Last Thursdays" class!

Butterflies 9 - tangerine

I used the colors straight from the Sale-A-Bration Sycamore Street Ribbon & Button Pack for this version, beginning with a Tangerine Tango card base.  The corners of the card base, as well as two of the corners of the 4" x 5-1/4" Whisper White layer are rounded with the Corner Rounder Punch.  It's a nice, subtle detail.

Butterflies 9 - tangerine 2

I punched Bitty Butterflies out of Tangerine Tango, Rich Razzleberry and Pool Party card stock and adhered them with SNAIL.  I added another popped up Pool Party butterfly to the center one and added some Rhinestone Jewels. 

Butterflies 9 - tangerine 3

I wrapped Pool Party Baker's Twine around the card twice and tied in a knot without the button.  I tried to tie the Sycamore Street button directly to the twine, but it was too floppy for my taste.  Instead, I just added another small piece of twine to the button and tied it, then adhered the button over the top of the wrapped twine with two Glue Dots.   

Butterflies 9 - melon

OK—this one is my favorite!  I love the colors and I added some cool patterns and textures when you look closely…

Butterflies 9 - melon 2

The Rich Razzleberry butterflies are texture embossed with the Square Lattice Impressions Folder.  I added a Tiny Tags flourish pattern on the Pool Party butterflies with the same color ink.  And, the Melon Mambo ones are stamped in the same color with a pattern from Beyond Plaid, then popped up with Dimensionals.  

The little added details of patterns and textures really bring this sweet card to a whole new level!  Love it!

Butterflies 9 - melon 3 2

The Sassy Salutations stamped sentiment adds a touch of whimsy in Rich Razzleberry.
