A Simple Butterfly Thank you Card

sweet sentiments butterfly thank you card

After Christmas we all need more thank you cards to show appreciation for all the wonderful gifts and favors we received over the holidays.  And clean and simple cards are a must when you want to make a more than just one!

I simply folded my Whisper White cardstock base before punching the scallop along the bottom.  I used the Simply Scored Scoring Tool to add a couple of scored lines above the scallop.  Be sure and score the back of the card to have the raised edge on the card front.  🙂

The scallop circle was punched from the Summer Smooch Designer Series paper and layered with a matching Tangerine Tango circle.  I punched the butterfly out twice with the Elegant Butterfly punch; once from the Summer Smooches dsp and once from Lucky Limeade.

I trimmed off a sliver of Daffodil Delight to add antennae and topped the butterfly with a rhinestone.  I curled the butterfly wings with my bone folder and used Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the center of the butterfly to the punched circles. (Glue dots would work well for this too.)

 With the butterfly accent ready to go I was able to stamp the “So Kind of You” sentiment from the Sweet Essentials stamp set in Island Indigo.

To attach the 1″ dsp strip under the scallop just right, I opened the card, lined it up the tulip strip with the bottom edge of the back, added glue to the underside of the scallop and closed the card so that the scallop was perfectly placed on the dsp strip.  That sounds more complicated than it is, but hopefully, you get the idea.
