Blue Birthday

I am back with another simply made little project created with papers from Elizabeth Robinson's digital collections. All the papers on this card are from the collection called Butterfly Blues, which can be found in her Etsy Shop, A Painter's Daughter.

For this card I started with a 5"x5" card blank and then added the first layer of paper, which is cut 1/16" smaller all around. The paper (and all the other panels) was distressed on the edges and then inked with Iced Spruce Distress Ink. Next came another patterned layer cut 1/4" smaller than the background panel. The last paper panel showcases the butterflies.

The sentiment was cut from a Spellbinders Label die and added with some leaves cut from a Tim Holtz die. I fussy cut two butterflies from the paper and added one on top of the other with dimensional foam before adding it to the card. Finally I made a bouquet of flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I hope you will check out the wonderful digital papers that Elizabeth has created and pick up some for your creations.
