Pink Girly Butterfly Cards

One of my mums friends asked me last week to make her a couple of pink girly birthday cards for her 2 grand daughters (10 and 8) later this month. She asked me to make sure that one had to be more pink and glittery than the other.

These are the 2 cards I came up with:

This first one is for the 10 year old, and I have added some 'stickles' to the edge of the butterfly, and 3 pearls to the middle of it.

The ribbon matches the colour of the butterfly, and the pink flower was colour with one of my new promarkers.

Hopefully although this card is quite plain and simple, it is elegant enough for a 10 year old, and she will like it.

I love this photo and the shadows the sun created for the butterfly.

I'd like to enter these cards into this weeks Flutter By Wednesday's Challenge.

For the second card I have used some light pink gemstone card stock to cut the butterfly out on the Craft Robo, and added some deep pink gems to the middle of the butterfly.

This has been put onto some embossed swirl white card, which I have drawn over with pink stickles. I love the effect it has given and will be doing it again in the future, even if it took me quite a while and made my hand hurt!

The swirly white card, has been matted onto some more pink gemstock card, and then matted onto silver mirror card.

The pink and white flowers were from my stash, as was the ribbon and sentiment.

I love this card, and it has given me another way to use my butterflies.


  1. Beautiful cards. I love the second one and the effect that the stickles have given.

  2. They both look great I love the effect of the stickles on the second one.

  3. Two lovely cards. The second one is made even more special by the Stickles, what a fab idea!
