Mother Of All Blog Hops - Butterfly Happiness


Welcome to the There She Goes Mother of All Blog Hops! If you have arrived here from Melyssa Connolly's blog, then you are in the right spot! If not, I recommend that you start back on the There She Goes company blog to get the introduction to our hop, as well as the information you will need in order to enter to win some exciting prizes!

My card features the gorgeous Butterfly Happiness set from There She Goes. The layout came from the latest Mojo Monday Contest - #137. To add lots of depth to my card I cut the card blank from a ShortCuts Clear Cardstock and put some of the sketch elements on the inside. When the card is closed you can see all of the layers from the front.

For the butterfly on the front, I first stamped and cut out a copy on the red patterned paper, then stamped a 2nd copy where I only cut out the body and wings. This was adhered to the first copy and I bent the wing up for a 3-D effect.


On the inside of the card I created a smaller card, so the personalized message would be hidden from the front. Then I added another small paper-pieced butterfly to the scenery stamp.
Now it's time to send you on to Emilia Gennaio's blog! Hope you have fun on the hop and good luck winning!!
