CAS Happy Birthday

I tried my hand tonight at a clean and simple birthday card.  I don't normally use a lot of butterflies on things, but I found a piece of glitter paper I'd punched a butterfly out of, so I used that as a stencil since I don't have a butterfly punch.

I found the inspiration for this on Pinterest and knew it would come together fairly quickly.  I adhered the glitter butterfly directly to my card base, then used a glue dot just on the center portion to adhere the dotted butterfly.  I bent the sides up just a bit for some added dimension.  The sentiment was stamped with VersaMark then heat embossed with gold embossing powder.

I finished off the inside with a small butterfly decorative button.

Supplies Used
Teresa Collins glitter paper
