Three Ways To Make The Same Card

A while back I posted a card inspired by Enfys Cashmore of Going Buggy.  At the time of her post, she was giving away some votive covers to two people who left a comment on her blog.  I'm pleased to say I was one of those winners.  I'll show them to you a little later in this post.  First I want to show you the card I made using one of them.  Notice the embossing on the paper. It is American Crafts Specialty Paper - Damask.

This is a picture of some of the votive covers.
 I used Martha Stewart punches for the butterflies and bent their wings.  I added Stickles - Waterfall down the spines of them.
 After making it, I thought it would be to make one with the Cricut & the Silhouette Cameo because the votive covers are from the UK and I couldn't find any in the US.

First I used the Cricut Expression 2 to make this card.
Products I used:
Anna Griffin "Rosa" Cuttlebug Embossing Folder for the embossing on the cardstock.
Paper Trimmings Cricut Cartridge for the Butterfly Border.
Indie Art Cricut Cartridge for the Butterflies.  This is my favorite butterfly image.  I cut the basic & the blackout in various sizes.

This card was made with the Silhouette Cameo.
 Products I used to make it:
SEI White Elegance Paper
Snapdragon Snippets Butterfly Flourish Border - Design # 43300
Silhouette Butterfly - Design #2004 cut at varying sized.

These cards were not hard to make but yet have simple elegance about them.  Thank you for letting me share them with you.  

I hope you will come back soon.  God Bless You!!!!  Peggy
