Birthday Girl Foam Butterflies

I finally used the butterflies and die from Papertrey Ink's Butterfly Dreams! I really felt like using foam and it actually stamped quite nicely with the Noir Palette ink. If it goes face down, the ink may transfer to your craft mat, though. Give it time to dry, face up!

These are 6" x 6" cards which I scored a grid onto for accurate butterfly placement and decorative effect. The center butterflies are glitter foam that's been popped up over the sentiment tag (Stef made these on the Cricut). They have True Black buttons with black embroidery  thread.

After die-cutting the butterflies, I ended up with some interesting scraps which I turned into cards:

I used Xyron to stick the foam down which proved to be quite difficult. They're not quite perfect. But as Jessica Witty says (and we remind ourselves frequently of), it's homemade!

There are score lines down the sides of the 1st card and score dots down the sides of the 2nd card.

A fantastic color combination! I really enjoy seeing things made with purple as I have such a difficult time with that color.
