Surprise! No elephants in today's project. LOL!
The subject of butterflies has been very popular in my house lately. I recently had to cut out 300 paper butterflies for my twins' 2nd Grade class because the kids are studying about caterpillars and butterflies and the teacher wanted to decorate the classroom. Each student is given a live caterpillar and she will study it as it transform into a chrysalis and then finally a butterfly. Even my little 5 year old is studying the same subject in her preschool. She is so proud that her teacher is keeping 5 caterpillars in her classroom too. Better still, since both her class and her sisters' class started keeping those caterpillars at the same time, they will all get to see butterflies at around the same time too!

I suppose it is no wonder then that I just have to make a butterfly card.
For today's project, I used Make-the-Cut and Lettering Delights' Cloud Nine SVG with Cosmo Cricket's Social Club cardstock. The whole card was cut by my Silhouette SD cutter because I was not able to get a satisfactory cut of the pop-out wings with my Gazelle.
Both the butterfly image and the sentiment are from Lettering Delights' Cloud Nine SVG. You may notice that even though the sentiment came in the form of an SVG, I used Make-the-Cut to cut out the flag and used the same program to PRINT the sentiment (instead of cutting that too).
The rhinestones as well as all the cardstock used (except the card base) are from Cosmo Cricket's Social Club line. If you have not entered in my giveaway of a Mini Deck Paper Pad from the same line, just click here to enter.
