Butterflies & Roses – A Vintage Birthday Card

Happy Friday, everybody!  Today I’m sharing a birthday card that I made using the Creating with Vintage Illustrations CD #2 from Crafty Secrets.  Take a look:

CD #2 is full of beautiful images like the one on this card – it practically made itself.  I sized the image in Word and added one of the frames from the CD for a little more interest around the corners, then printed the whole thing.  Then, I cropped the image down to just the butterfly at the bottom, printed that, and fussy cut the butterfly.  I added Stickles and Glossy Accents to the butterfly and let it dry, and the wings curled up perfectly all by themselves.

The tag I made with a scrap of cream cardstock and a stamp from my stash; I used my Exacto knife to cut around the flowers and tucked the tag right in!

On the inside, I used the same frame and another floral image from the CD:

That’s it for me, I’ve got to get cracking on some work so I can relax this weekend.  Don’t forget, you still have 3 days to play along with this month’s Linky Party!  Just for entering you get the new Retro Kitchen Digital Kit.

Have a lovely day!
