SNOWY DAY FUN
Here are two new cards I made while the snow was falling. I needed a hint of Spring!
The top one features a pop-up butterfly made from the SU butterflies diecut and my Cuttlebug. The card front folds back for added interest.
The bottom one has a birthday message on an accordion fold hidden from view until the card is opened. The cupcake on the front was paper pieced, with Pistachio glitter for added sparkle on the "icing." The triangle cutaway was necessary because the cardstock had faded in the store--the package it came in has a triangle opening at the top so you can see the colors inside. Thankfully, only the top sheet was affected. (That's probably why it was on the half-price rack.)
I'm happy to be back into pastels and florals. How 'bout you?
