{ The Cutting Cafe' butterfly card }



I used my Cricut Expression to cut the butterfly card shape. I embossed the front of the card with Cuttlebug embossing folder. I cut two different size butterflies for the top. I use my SCAL software to resize those files to any size that I want.
I stitched around the edges of the top butterfly with floss. The flowers are from Flower Pot Shaped Card Template and Cutting file. I cut those with my Cricut, as well. The leaves are a Hero Arts stamp that I stamped on cardstock and cut out.

For the antennas, I used two Prima flowers.

The sentiment is printed on cardstock and it's from  Flower Pot Shaped Card Template and Cutting file.

Here are some photos of our visit to the Duck Creek Blackberry farm  last weekend. Alex had so much fun. We filled a large bucket of delicious blackberries that we ate all week.  

I made a Blackberry cobbler for the first time and it was so good. I got a great recipe here, but made some changes as suggested in some of the reviews.

Enjoy your weekend.

  16. That butterfly card is irresistible! I made some 3D butterfly cards too and posted already. I did not have exact template, but I used the Home Accent Cartridge. I think It works Ok.
