Beauty Abound Anniversary Card

Butterfly Beauty Anniversary card

It has been a week since this Butterfly Beauty Anniversary card was given to Joe. I am happy because it is still sitting on his dresser. Silly I am sure, but still. It is kinda funny because some years the card idea come quick. This year, I kinda struggled. Well, I guess after 11 years it is bound to happen a time or two.

Here is where I started… Always butterflies.

It is a “thing” for us. Typically there is green and purple. His favorite color and mine. This year it is Granny Apple Green and Highland Heather. I wanted to share last years card but sadly I could not find it, or the one from the year before. No clue where to find it either. I think it falls into the… I forget to take pictures before I write in it category. Yeah, I know…

Yup, even with me talking about it in my live. I did it again. You can see on the bottom of the photo here… I started to write and remembered.

Please tell me I am not the only one!!

Stampin Blends and Vellum

Just a bit of coloring. Using the same Highland Heather and Granny Apple Green light and dark Stampin’ Blends. I measured the size I would need to use the one die cut and did the coloring first. You are right, so it would dry!

Here is what the vellum looked like after I cut the butterflies out. Different from the Brilliant Wings dies this one stays altogether. Well unless you cut it up like I have been known to do. Like this time.. here

I am however sad to report that the dies, embossing folder and stamp set used for this card are ALL retiring.

Wanting to be sure that you are aware of all the retiring things. I will do my best to share the items that I have. Even share again a few previously made cards. Who does not like more idea!!

Hugs and Have a Great Day getting Crafty!!
