Back today with another project for Sizzix, this time a quick birthday card set in a happy springtime color palette.
After this recent round of storms that hit the country this week, I’m sure we all could use a little spring right now. Even here in the south, in the heart of North Carolina, schools were closed for the day yesterday. Seems like this is the winter that never ends. But maybe these bright butterflies will bring hope.
I love the classic shape to these Tim Holtz Movers & Shapers Butterflies, and they are such a perfect size for cards. Simple scalloped circle cut outs made with nesting Thinlits dies make quick and easy window frames, and keep all the attention on the pretty butterflies.
I added a fleck of color to each die cut opening, then used matching paper down the left side. This is the pretty new Flourish collection by Authentique. A favorite birthday sentiment in the corner. I popped the stamped panel up on pop dots for a bit of dimension. Vintage pearl buttons dress up the center of each butterfly.
A classic simple design, and so easy to switch up for different themes or events. Pop on over to the Sizzix blog for more details.
And don’t forget….March is National Craft Month.
