Danielle's Corner Office: Valentines Day Card

Valentines Day Card

I made this card for several challenges. The butterfly is cut with the Cricut from Once Upon a Princess cartridge. I cut it 3 times in graduated sizes in different patterened paper. Instead of adding the layers that were available on the cart, I just doodled on the top butterfly. I added pearls in graduated sizes for the body. The papers are all from the same stack by K & Co., called Smitten. This stack has such beautiful papers that I bought 2 of them when I saw them last year. The heart at the top is a stamp from the dollar bin at ACMoore that I bought years ago, but I still love it. I stamped on the same cream and white patterened paper that is under the butterfly in a pale pink, then added Stickles to the dots around the edge of the heart. On the inside I cut out the edged lace from a sheet of the Smitten cardstock and used another stamp from the dollar bin at ACMoore that I probably bought at the same time as the heart. I used a Cranberry Ink for that stamp. Simple card, but I like how it turned out.
