Mini Thank You

My friend Monica sent me this wonderful mini Easter Card in with a package of goodies, I decided it would be perfect as a small thank you to put in with an order

It measures 2 3/4" x 2 3/4", and is made entirely from scraps of card from my scraps pile.

Start with a piece of card 2 3/4" x 6 3/8", score at 1" and 3 3/4" and chomp the corners on the short end.  Tie a ribbon round the longer flap, add a greeting and then, the only remotely tricky bit, attach the butterfly (I used the medium and small butterfly dies).  This is the method I used:  Apply tape to the lower wings of the medium butterfly, hold the top (unsticky) wings on the edge of the top flap, close the flap and then stick to the bottom flap - you now have a catch to hold the card shut.  I couldn't resist adding a couple of 'diamonds' at this point.

All the supplies are from Amuse Studio and are available from my online store here.

stamps: essential sentiments
paper: bubblegum polka dot, bermuda, papaya, sugar
ink: bermuda
misc: butterfly die trio, sugar organdy ribbon, clear twinkle stickers

Adorable!! Glad you liked the card. :) I like the way you fastened the card to close with the butterflies. We'll have to get in touch soon. Hope you're doing well, Karen!
