Butterfly Mother’s Day Card

At some point in my life, I hope to prefect my watercolor backgrounds….until then pattern papers to the rescue! I so love the fun mix of papers in the You are Enough collection! The collection has everything from soft pastels to vibrant mixes. You are sure to find a mix that you love! Here is an overview of the bundle of products-

I created my card with the gorgeous watercolor background and die cut the layered butterflies out of the same. To conserve the gorgeous paper, I cut my butterflies out of the same panel. The panel was going to mostly be covered with the white panel, so I didn’t want the gorgeous paper to go to waste!

I only applied adhesive to the body of the butterfly on the intricate die, to give the wings flight. My happy sentiment was cut three times and layered together for added dimension. A few holographic butterfly embellishments add a little bling. I jazzed them up just a tad with bitty sparkles.

I created my inside sentiment with the You are Enough stamp set. I loved how the sentiment was laid out on the stamp carrier sheet and thought it was perfect for a Mother’s Day card! I know we often need to be reminded that we are all of these things!
