SNSDC25 Make a Shaped Card

Welcome to another SweetnSassy digi challenge! This week's #25 challenge is to create a shaped card. In my last SU! order, my demo made a little thank-you card similar to this one, and I wanted to make one because they're so cute, so I made a couple of these with matching lined envelopes. I used a butterfly die and cut scraps of concord crush cardstock and embossed them with various embossing folders. I die-cut a smaller butterfly from DP for the center and added a gemstone.
This is a digi sentiment from the True Friend sentiments set. I printed it first, and then cut the butterfly out and added it to the center with a matching gemstone like the one on the front of the card.
Here's one I made a little differently. This one has a folded center & back, while a separate front was attached to keep the shape of the butterfly wings at the top.
I used 2 clear stamp sets for the inside of this one instead of digis, but this just shows the versatility you have when making these tiny cards!
Thanks for stopping by today, and I can't wait to see your shaped card creations! Be sure and check out the SNSDC blog for my fellow DT creations too!
