Set of Birthday Cards

For the Card Creations: Favorite Occasions Week Birthday Challenge in the Moxie Fab World, they are celebrating the release of their newest Card Creations publication, and one of the challenges is to make a birthday card. I just happen to have needed 5 of them for this month, so this challenge worked out well for me. I made the same card 4 times, each in a different color.


Here are 2 of them closer up:




All of the cards started with the lovely Hero Arts cling stamp called Butterfly Field.  It was stamped on white cardstock using various distress inks.  Separately I stamped and colored the Traditional Butterly using colored pencils and mineral spirits (or orange marker and white gel pen on the orange one), then cut each one out.  I finished by overstamping the butterfly again on my background, and gluing or popping the butterflies in place (this saves trying to cut out around those tiny antennae).  Lastly I overstamped the sentiments.

Supplies: white cardstock, Hero Arts CG176 Butterfly Field, E5388 Traditional Butterfly, CL139 Birthday Messages, PTI Vintage Picnic Sentiments, worn lipstick, broken china, peeled paint, and mustard seed distress inks, Versafine onyx black ink and clear embossing powder, Prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits, Marvy orange marker, white gel pen
