Hybrid birthday butterfly card

I took a pre made base card I believe from Michaels craft store.
Added a Butterfly from Quikutz and sentiment from Sizzix for a quick card for my niece.

From the heart

I made a couple of these single layer cards.
Sponging the mask area with these colors.

Then I stamped the flowers~ branch with Wild Wasabi from the stamp set "Watercolor Trio " as well as the sentiment.

School Days bus card

I saw this on SCS and what a perfect find as I wanted to make a card for Julia.

 Slide out the front of the bus to reveal a folded card for a sentiment.

Antique Quikuts papillon card

Using my discard pile of items I was able to make this card. Inking the edges of all elements I was able to make this relatively quick card.
After die cutting the Quikutz butterfly from a paper bag and card stock I added it to an oval in my pile.
Running it through a floral embossing folder and added a black swirl of rhinestones.
I left the sentiment open for now until I know when I may need it for a specific event.

Butterfly antique note card

Using up a few of my left overs, I created this note card. In my pile I had the strip of butterflies and the strip of swirl stamped piece.
I placed one of the butterflies on the swirl with a rhinestone as if to mimick the flight of the butterfly.
Taking the left over distressed doily from the previous card I layered over the Darice embossed base paper.

It's been beautiful these past couple days and thought to make a few Christmas cards. Here's a quick card I used two single stamps from Michaels and the stars from Sizzix. All old items but still worth keeping.
The snowflakes are stamped with a brown ink pad that is not very inky but I wanted them light and airy so it totally worked for me.

After posting, I had forgotten to score a couple lines above and below the sentiment.
