Butterfly Thanks

 Morning and we have a new ATG/Thanks/Thankfulness challenge at 613 Avenue Create.

I made two litle thank you cards using a new to me fold someone shared on FB.

The papers are all from my oddments drawer,the stamped Bee is from Chocolate Baroque,coloured with promarkers and added glossy accents on the wings.

Stamped sentiment from a Stampin Up set

The Butterfly is from IndigoBlu,stamped on the card,then old book page and co-ordinating P.paper and layered.The little tags were also cut from same papers and added twine.

You score card into four sections,cut away the top left hand corner,cut from left corner to centre,then top right hand section fold in half to make a pocket for a tag---easy peasy!

These are both fabulous Carol and the butterflies look so pretty. I know I’ve said it before but I really must make some fancy fold cards. I’ve had a nasty flu bug over the last week, so no crafting going on in my house at the moment. Take care and enjoy your day x

Hi Carol. Thanks for commenting on my ornament cards. If you haven't got a gelli plate, you could use some christmassy washi tape for the ornaments, and patterned paper for the background card ;-)
