Hi Friends! Happy Monday to you!
I definitely woke up to a little crisp in the air this morning, which just proves that my very favorite month of the year must be here, October! It is just about time for spooks, my friends, and I can’t wait to start sharing some of my Halloween projects and decor with you all.
But for today, I have a pair of birthday cards to share with you that I made awhile back for the Sizzix blog featuring the fabulous Flutter line of stamps and dies by Tim Holtz.
It seems like I am always in need of birthday cards, so I like to try to build up a stash of ready-made cards to keep on hand. The new Tim Holtz Flutter butterflies are so beautiful and fun to use, and work really well for year-round birthday card designs. Today I’ve created a bit of a summer-inspired look using light pastel colors in an earthy color palette, paired with lots of crisp white and bold black to make everything pop.
I used a variety of different Flutter butterfly images to stamp the background paper, and then die cut and colored one to be the focus of the design, nestled within a Tim Holtz Stitched Circle die cut frame. I’ve got the full step-by-step tutorial up on the Sizzix blog, if you’d like to learn more.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope to be back on Friday with the beginnings of my 2018 Halloween Haunted House Tour! Until then, wishing you all a wonderful week!
