Fly Away Birthdays!

The past 2 weeks I've been working at making some cards for my stash and for gifts using up some of my 6 x 6 card stock pads-I have a lot of them and need to start using more of them.

So with 2 pads of paper in mind I went to work one day cutting out several dozens of pieces to assemble cards and whenever I've had free time I've been sitting down to stamp/assemble about 4 of them at a time.

For these 2 cards I used the My Mind's Eye Kraft Funday Happy Days paper pack and the Operation Write Home sketch #211.  In retrospect I wish I would have used a bolder color for my circle but wanted it to stand out against then number background.

I die cut my butterfly twice, one with patterned paper and once with vellum.  I then wrapped the body with some twine and tied it off creating some antennae.

This card also ties into the Diva Dare for Day 3 that Charmaine is hosting to use vellum.

I kept my cards pretty clean & simple, very little embellishments-will be sharing a lot of them over the next few weeks, think I made roughly 40 of them using 2 pads of paper (and not even the whole pad).

Card details:
Stamps: Treasured Words by Verve Stamps
Cardstock: My Mind's Eye Kraft Funday Happy Days, Baja Breeze, Whisper White, vellum cardstock
Inks: Night of Navy
Embellishments: twine, die from Papertrey Ink, spellbinders circle dies

Love MME papers and these are great. Lovely vellum layered butterfly. Thanks for joining us for this month's Diva Dare.

Great design and use of those 6x6 pads that we just all "had" to have! My stash is completely depleted, Kim, so you have inspired me to work on that! Both cards here are very versatile and sweet!

I love those vellum butterflies with the twine Kim. The background panel looks great with the different prints.
