Blog candy…I think I hate it. Yep I said it. Why you ask…well because I hate readers who only read blogs that offer it, I hate that we all expect it so much most people feel obligated to offer it and I especially hate that I’m so far behind in sending it out to my winners. For the record…I will NOT be offering any more blog candy until I can get caught up on what I’ve already offered and haven’t gotten int he mail yet. Anyway…in that spirit of things, I decided to include a card with all the blog candy prizes I’m mailing to express my sorrow for it taking sooooooooooooo long to get in the mail. I have a lot of cards to make (I told you I’m AWFUL about blog candy), and so I needed something pretty simple to create yet easy enough to tweak and make different each time. The six cards in this post all feature the exact same supply list below.Supplies Needed: A2 Card base eCraft Fundamentals 2 SD Card Background paper cut at 4 x 5.25 Adhesive (Tombo Mono Adhesive) Scallop Trim Border Punch (Stampin’ Up) K Andrew Designs Art Stamps Sympathetic Sayings Ink (Memento Tuxedo Black) 3 coordinating colors of paper for butterfly cuts
The butterflies were all cut at 2.5 inches from 3 different papers. I used one sheet of open stock paper I bought at Joann’s (the patterned paper butterfly) and then the other two colors are just random paper from my stash. The background mat I used came from a Recollections stack called All Girl or something similar. I don’t have it handy to look it up for you. The sentiment is from this set by Kristal Andrew and can be purchased here.
If you have won blog candy from me, one of these cards (or something similar) could be on its way to you soon!
