Butterflies B-Day Card, Some News, & LD Super Cut File Bundle!

I made this birthday card for my niece.  I love the purple, green, ivory, and brown color combo and the butterflies were fun to make.  Also, I used the print and cut functions in SCAL to print the digital stamp on a SVG cut.  Earlier this week, I shared a tutorial on how to do this - click HERE to read the tutorial. 

Materials Used:
- Digital Stamp/Word Art by Elegant WordArt by Bethany
- Frame/Mat SVG by Sensationally Chic Boutique
- Butterfly Silhouette SVG by SVGCuts (no longer available)
- Sizzix Stampin' Up! Embossing Template
- Corner Punch
- Glimmer Mist, twine, staple, and pearl stickers to embellish

I am entering this project in the latest Paper Dolls Challenge - Stamps!  I love this new blog!  Great challenges, link-ups, and the best part - I get to use my SVGs!!!

I have some exciting news to share too!  My Flower Ball Trees/Topiaries were featured on Heather M's blog a couple weeks ago.  You can check it out HERE!  Heather is one of my favorite SVG designers and I am so honored that she shared my project on her blog!!!  Also, I can't share too much information yet, but I will be joining a Design Team soon!!!  I will share more about this soon! 

And lastly, I wanted to mention an AWESOME bundle of cutting files available at Lettering Delights!  This new product called "Cut Its Super Shape Bunde" is being introduced at a very low price of $49 (regular price is $150) and if you have a 25% coupon from your last purchase (in puchase confirmation email from Lettering Delights), you can get it for ONLY $36.75!!! 

The cutting file formats included in the bundle are ai, dxf, eps, gsd, jpg, pdf, and svg, and below are a few of the really cute cutting files in this bundle.  There are a total of 760 cutting files in a variety of themes.  I will be purchasing this bundle tonight!  I can't wait to have fun with these!

Hurry, this deal will only last for another week - click HERE to get it!                                          

Have a wonderful day!!!

  3. Melanie this is so beautiful! I love the butterfly with the embellishments on the wings... :)

  4. Two things....still love and want that embossing folder from SU you used. Second, thanks for the review of cutting pictures/images out. Congrats also to your upcoming designer position which is a surprise that we will be waiting to hear about! Heather's stuff and she's very helpful when I run into a problem.

  5. That is such a pretty card! Love the colors and the simple butterflies you used here. So beautiful. Thanks for joining us over at the Paper Dolls Challenge!

  6. This is a pretty card. My favorite color is purple. You use a cricut with SVG files? I thought Cricut stopped that? I just got a E2, I also have an expression, so no new cutter for me. So I can't use SVG files, I would love to but I can't without a new cutter, isn't that right? Hugs, Pam at
