Butterfly Thinking of You Cards

While I was sorting out my craft cupboard - which is a narrow (single) wardrobe from Ikea, with shelves and two drawers instead of a hanging rail - I came across some cards I made ages ago (probably a couple of years).

Sometimes you need a card for a sombre or sorry occasion, or sometimes just to wish people well and let them know you are thinking of them. All the elements on both of these cards came from one big pack; the butterflies are die cuts that I thought went well with the patterns of the backing paper. In fact they are decoupage and though you can't really tell from this picture, the butterflies have several layers raised up from the card. The 'thinking of you' sentiments are also both die cuts, with gold words and edging on white card; I mounted them on the cards with adhesive pads so they would stand out.

I'm entering this in the Butterfly Spot Challenge where the theme each time is a butterfly and a colour or something beginning with a particular letter; this time it is navy. The butterflies have navy blue in their wings and though you can't quite tell, the dots on the background of the bottom card are navy blue.

I'm also sending it to the Crafty Boots challenge as the theme is 'things with wings'.


  1. Both cards are so lovely and just perfect for so many occasions when you need to extend a friendly hand. The butterfly die cut is so pretty and the backing paper are gorgeous.

    Thank you for playing along with Crafty Boots 'Things with Wings' Challenge.


  2. Hi Caroline,
    what very lovely cards and wonderful designs too.
    Welcome to the Butterfly Challenge.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  3. Beautiful and elegant cards Caroline.

  4. I love these butterflies. The backing papers are perfect for them to flutter on as they do not detract from the butterfly. Raising the sentiment is an added plus. Thankyou for fluttering by my challenge. Hugs Mrs A.

  5. These are both fabulous, love the backing papers and the butterflies.
