Card: Pinterest Inspiration

Welcome to my blog. In order to maintain this blog, this page contains affiliate links and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking my links.

Do you ever have those days when you are stuck waiting for the timer to go off on the oven so you pass the time looking at random ideas on Pinterest? That happened to me today while baking a crustless pumpkin pie.

I came across a card on Pinterest and decided to use it for inspiration for my friend's upcoming birthday. I tried to follow the links back to the original card, and the best I can figure out is that my inspiration card is by . I certainly want to be sure to give credit to the original designer, even though I modified my design from the one seen on Pinterest.

Normally I give you my "recipe" for my card, but in all honesty, I used assorted supplies I have in my stash, some of which I don't remember where I bought them, so instead let me simply show you what I gathered together to work with and I will provide links to those items I know the source of.

First I cut the light pink cardstock to use as my base card, 4.25" x 11". I then folded it in half. Next I cut my printed cardstock to 4" x 2" and my neutral cardstock to 4" x 5.25". I had already die cut the butterfly from the scraps of the light pink cardstock I had left from my base card and the "Happy Birthday" from some gold glitter paper.

I attached my printed cardstock to the neutral cardstock using my Tombow Permanent Adhesive. Then I used my glitter tape I bought from Cricut to merge the two cardstocks together. Next I used my Clear Shimmer Brush to highlight the dips in the butterfly wings.

I added a white pearl to the butterfly and then put all the pieces together. I love how feminine looking the card came out! Lots of glitter, shimmer, and love to wish my dear friend a "Happy Birthday"!
