Happy 1st Birthday

Hello all! Last weekend a good friend of mine had a 1st birthday celebration for her daughter, these were the invitations she and I had created for the party... The kraft base was stamped with flourishes from Fancy Flourishes using Versamark ink.
The cloud label was die cut and stamped (in Sweet Blush) using the matching Fillable Frames #3 Die and stamps. The sentiment was a combination of "Happy Birthday" (from Butterfly Dreams) in Pure Poppy and "1" in Sweet Blush from Outlines Alphabet. Punched and embossed the butterflies with swiss dots, then attach the fluttering butterflies up the side of the card.

We had to create 25 of these babies, which adds up to 125 butterflies! We quickly found that the best way to create a bunch of these fluttery butterflies is to start by punching a bunch out. Layer as many as possible into the embossing folder and then run all of them through the embossing machine at one time.

If your in need of a girly birthday card this idea would work perfectly. Just change the "1" to the age of the recipient.

Thanks for stopping by, hope you all are enjoying your week!
