Butterflies and baby scraps

Having fun still working through those baby scraps . . .

This is just a simple card made with three strips of leftover paper from the DCWV’s Baby Boy Stack.  I used extra scraps to make the butterflies, which are from page 41 of the Art Philosophy cartridge.

For each butterfly, I cut two base pieces and one top layer.  I adhered one of the bases directly to the card and the other I glued to its top layer.  Then I folded the wings slightly and glued the center part of the body onto the first base.  I like the way it looks!

This is such pretty paper.  It has a little sparkle to it, as you can see here:

I only have a little left of the scraps that don’t look like baby paper.  I am determined to use it all up on projects that are un-babyish!

    A beautiful little card. I’m always looking at the baby paper for the soft colors I’m in need of. Love the layering of the sweet butterflies…something I have no thought of for all my spring cards….thanks for the reminder and inspiration.
