Anniversary Card Using Quick Cards - Butterfly and Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge

Hi all you beautiful people!!  Don't you just love crafting?  I am having so much fun since I started doing scrapbooking and card making.  It satisfies my need to create and to be part of something bigger than me. 

I created an anniversary card using my new CTMH "Quick Cards - Butterfly stamp" I  purchased in June.  I love this stamp set.  It is one piece and includes the sentiment - " Love as delicate as a butterfly's wings; as strong as the circle of life."  It can be used for many occasions such as weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, thank you card, valentine card and so much more.   I have seem many cards created with it using only the butterfly or only the sentiment or both; which I plan to try as well. 



Don't forget to check out my Virtual Card Club where everything is sent to your home to create beautiful cards. Tell your friends or give it as a gift for someone you love. They will be thrilled. Check out the details under the Virtual Card Club tab at the top of the page. Here is a picture of the first 4 cards created for my card club. Email me at: purpleglocreations@socal.rr.com to join today!! 


Supplies used for this card:

Base white card is 5 x 6 1/2
Squares are cut with Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge
Paper -  Antique Paperie by Colorbok
Stamp Set - CTMH Quick Cards - Butterfly
Ink - CTMH Sunny Yellow and CTMH Lagoon
Butterflies - EK 3 way butterfly punch

Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope my card provided you with some inspiration.  I guess you can tell I love butterflies and I also love yellow.  This was an easy card to make; but I was trying to use sponge daubers to color the stamp and I am not very good at it.  This was the best I could do until further practice.

This would be a great month for anyone interested in purchasing the Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge because you will get a free paper packet (Choose your favorite paper packet - see list under Specials tab and order on that date.), coordinating accessory and you can have the July Stamp Of The Month for only $5.  What a deal.   A lot of goodies for purchasing the AP cartridge this month.  That is a savings of approximately $35 besides the already reduced savings on the AP cart.
Have a fantastic day!  Remember - Keep On Creating!!!
