Butterfly card

Christmas may be over but the card-making continues! We had to share this beautiful card made by TST's Julie; her cards are so beautiful and a great inspiration.

'In my opinion, when you make cards, you need to think like you are dressing for need layers! I love the weight that the layers add to a handmade card. This card has six different pieces of cardstock/papers on top of the base! (seven if you count the butterfly!) It is a sturdy card!

Of course my love of layers also adds to the postage in sending these cards to loved ones and friends, but in my opinion, it is worth it. One thing you should keep in mind when you heavily layer a card on the outside is that you will need to layer it up on the inside or the card will never stand up on its own well. It would slide down or fall if your recipient wants to stand it up for display. So, make sure you layer the inside too!'
