I made two cards. One for my step-son's birthday, and one for my cousin who I still exchange snail mail with! Here they are! Basic, but cute, I think! I really appreciate the butterfly link, Bobbie Lynn!!!
The link to learn how to make the paper butterflies is HERE
It's hard to make a card for a man, I think. Keeping the butterfly dark kept the feel more masculine.
I attached them to the card by using a half inch 3-D glue dot. It feels pretty secure.
The beautiful cardstock I used came from:
The floral card: Citrus stack by DCWV.
The black and yellow card: Mariposa stack by DCWV
both found at JoAnn Fabrics on sale. The basic box of plain colored cards was also found there on sale!
Oh, and I found a ball of green twine I have had since in my 20's (it's 30 years old), and I used it to tie up the butterfly and make the antennae. Pretty cool. I believe I will be making more of these cute butterflies!
