WE ARE THE WINGS....a handmade card for the cutting cafe

hello all...
i am welcoming you to my blog today with a beautiful sentiment and card from 
 this file is called social butterflies and i immediately fell in love with this image and its sentiment.

"We are the Wings of a Butterfly, bound together with the Love of God"
4.25" x 6"
-sorry about the cloudy/washed out pic here-
(maybe i am not used to soft colors and i think is washed out)
once again, i used the pdf doc file for this card.
i printed out on patterned paper and the with the x-acto knife i cut out the leaves to back them up with a patterned paper. at first, i was thinking to color them in  but changed my mind. i think the twist of thoughts turned out much better and it was a fun.

 i did some of the zig zag stitching to secure all the layers together in place of adhesive.
(after  securing them in the middle with my atg, just a short diagonal line)

please, remember i cut by hand and not all is perfect, especially when i drop my x-acto knife with my last new blade  on the floor, and the tip broke, lol.

 i hope you try this, it is nicer in real life...the pics are awful. so sorry!
i will try to re shoot and re placed them.
ETA: took new photos/replaced them but still couldn't get any better....i am leaving them like this---so sorry.

this social butterfly set comes with 22 images and it has more than a dozen individual butterflies and a few sentiments, including some round ones.
there is another pretty sentiment you are going to love.

i hope you have a great sunday and a better week.

thanks for stooping by!
