CR84FN45: Butterfly Thanks

Wednesday, January 4, 2012

Hi Friends! School starts back tomorrow for my DD, and I need to get to bed soon, so I'll keep this short.

Over the holidays, I sent one of my Christmas cards to my aunt and uncle, and my aunt responded by asking if I had any notecard sets for sale. I don't, but it made me think that I should put some together. I think they make nice gifts. This card is the first in what will be a set of four cards, and I plan to alter a dvd tin to use as a box for them. I used the CR84FN45 Color Challenge for my color palette. This isn't a color combination that I would normally use, but aren't the inspiration photos gorgeous! I thought I'd give it a try.

This is a small card--a 4 Bar size (3-1/2" x 4-7/8"). That's the perfect size for the DVD tin. I'll show you how they'll fit in it later, when I've made the other cards. I made this card as flat as possible, for mailing, and the inside is completely blank.

Turns out I kind of like these colors together. The orange ribbon is so pretty against that shade of blue.

Well, I said this would be short, and here we are, all done. :) Hope you liked the card.

Thanks for stopping by, and enjoy the rest of your week!
