My granddaughters called over the weekend and asked me to make Valentine’s cards for their school teachers.  They wanted “hearts and butterflies”, so that’s what they got!

Besides the two finished cards, I made a couple more just like them that still needed a tiny bit of assembly. I thought I would send those, too, for the girls to put together so that they would feel like they helped make their teachers’ cards. But just in case they “messed up” or lost a rhinestone along the way, they would have the finished cards to fall back on.

The butterfly was given a little dimension by punching two butterflies, one of them from black cardstock, and adhering that one flat to the card front.  The butterfly punched from the designer paper was then adhered with glue dots at the center of the black one and its wings were gently folded upwards around the rhinestones.

Just a heads up… Next week will be my 4 year Blogiversary, and I will be giving away 4 new stamp sets.  Be sure to stop by for a fun giveaway.  There will be a couple of new sets from Stampin Up, one set from Hero Arts and a set from Inkadinkado.

Happy Crafting!
