Come share my love of paper crafting and card making.

A friend of mine is having some complications with her pregnancy and is now home on bed rest. I made this card to send her to let her know I was thinking of her and wishing her well. My card is 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" white card stock. I used my Imagine, the Lori's Garden Imagine Cartridge and the stock images to print the patterned paper and the green strip of paper. For the patterned paper I used the 2:3 stock rectangle image and sized it to 4" which gave me a rectangle that was 4" x 6" that I cut down to 4 X 5 1/2". For the green strip I used the 1:2 stock rectangle image and sized it to 3". I cut it down to 2 1/4" X 5 1/2". I then used a Fiskar embossing border punch to punch the edge of of the green strip. I added a blue ribbon and knot bow to the bridge where the two papers meet. The butterfly is also from Lori's Garden Imagine cartridge. I print and cut the butterfly at 3" using the layers feature. Because I plan to mail this card I wanted to keep the dimension down so I just adhered the layers with my zig two-way glue pen. I did pop dot the butterfly to the card front. I added some pale green pearls to the butterfly's wings and some stardust stickles to the body and the middle of the wings. I used some Brillance Sky Blue ink to stamp my Hello on the outside of the card. The sentiment on the inside says" Sending you many happy thoughts." Thanks for visiting.
