Butterfly Card - Thinking of you

Pin It

This card was created for the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge for this week.

I had an old shirt that had holes in it. Lately I have been saving old clothes, in-case I can use them in a project. So I cut the bottom hem off this pink shirt.

I put score tape across it near the hem stitching.

 Then I carefully folded the fabric back and forth as I adhered it to the card. Then I tucked under the end and adhered it. After that I found some ribbon that I wrapped around the card to finish off the pleated fabric, and tied a bow.

Butterfly and Cage cut from the Cricut using Bloom Cricut Cartridge. Cut at 2 3/4 inches. I used Core'dinations paper for the cuts. Then accented them with Crystal Stickles and Recollections Rhinestones. The butterfly had foam adhesive under the middle and the wings folded up to add dimension. The top of the cage had foam adhesive but the bottom of the cage I used score tape since the fabric raised that part of the card up.

Thank you for visiting my Simple Creations.
