Butterflies and Dads

Another installment in the sets of cards I made in the gift set I was commissioned to make.

These were quick and easy! My card base is Whisper White. I punched three different fun colors from the Patterns Designer Series Paper Stack: Concord Crush, Peach Parfait and Pear Pizzazz, using my Butterfly Punch.

Each butterfly was adorned with one clear Basic Rhinestone for a little sparkle. I popped them up on Stampin' Dimensionals and gave them a shelf to rest on in a matching card stock color that was punched using my Eyelet Border Punch.

The sentiment was stamped in matching ink and punched and framed using Oval punches. I hope you like these and please do leave me a comment! I will post one more of the sets I made on Monday.

It's Father's Day, so I hope you remind all of the dads you know how important they are to their kids and families. My husband's brothers are joining our family for a backyard lunch and swimming. I made each "dad" a package of home made fudge. Of course I had to make a tag for each, so I quickly designed one yesterday afternoon.

Have a great day!

Your butterflies are SO cute! I absolutely LOVE the butterfly punch. I hope it never retires. Again, whoever commissioned you knew what they were doing.
