Make it Monday #47- 2011 A la Carte

This is another card for the "A la Carte" version of MIM this week. I was hoping to get a few more of the techniques down onto cards this week, but seemed to have run out of time. Anyone know where the heck it goes? I decided to go with the Reverse Applique from MIM #40. I included a photo to show the scraps of PP that show through the butterflies before I added the sheet of paper with my Get Well message to the inside of the card which covers up the messy part.

My Card~
Cardstock: Orchid base card is from Recollections; inserts are scraps of Pacific Vineyard by PTI
Tools: Butterfly punch from Martha Stewart; large corner rounder from EKSuccess; White opaque marker (making my "stitched" butterfly trails) is from Martha Stewart also
Embellishments: Glittery Ribbon is from Michael's; silk flower from my stash and brad from Spare-Parts by the Paper Studio


  1. Hi Helen! What a cool technique, and I like the results! Those butterflies turned out great! There are so many new and old techniques that I want to use, but I find myself needing quick cards and doing the same thing over and over again. So I know exactly what you mean when you ask where the heck time goes...see you again soon!
