Belated Birthday Butterfly card

 Hi folks.... Ok, so now I am totally procrastinating when I should be doing some last minute revision.  I just couldn't help popping this post up as Sam Poole has shared on Facebook that she received this card today.  I'm so chuffed... she "loves it".
 I made a little 4x4 inch easel card from Kraft card.  I took some pretty Prima paper and stamped into the corners with a tiny lattice punch.  I then added glitter to the intersection points on the stamped lattice design.  I used a WRMK stamp set to create the little sentiment tag.  The letters are die cut from Kraft cardstock.
I finally opened my Melt pot. Yay!! The packaging was so old the plastic kinda shattered.  It's one of those purchases I made years ago that never made it out of the packaging and just gathered dust.  I wonder if you've bought any craft goodies only to find years later you haven't used them?  I had so much fun melting some UTEE that I pretty much dunked everything on this card.  The Die cut butterfly, the paper roses and the sentiment all had a good dunking!!  I love how they turned out.  
Ciao for now!

Hi Sandra, long time no visit!

I just love this card. The butterfly looks amazing.

Loved your story about your melt pot. I have a couple of crafty bits like that, just had to have them and to my shame they have yet to see the light of day in my craft room.

Thanks for sharing with us
