Wild Card #19 - Butterfly Wave

Another great day of the wild card series, this is such a uniquely shaped card.... what imaginative designers who come up with the designs of these cards, it's so fun to not always have the traditional rectangle card.

This wild card is called "wave" it can be found on page 50 of the wild card booklet.

I chose beautiful cardstock from the DCWV glittered and foiled stack called "the Blossoms & Butterflies.... just gorgous paper and very thick.

From page 50, circled in red are the images and quantities that I used for this card. I cut every image for this card at 6" each.

Here are the images I cut for this card.... isn't this lovely cardstock? It's so nice to work with. The phrase was cut using the pink butterfly cardstock.
I placed all three images of the wave icon on the front of my card. The blue and green overlapping, then with the pink butterflies over the two other waves. The green and pink wave hung over the edge of the card front a bit, but I easily trimmed it off.
I place the phrase on the inside of the card, so when the first card flap was opeded the word "you" was shone.

The entire phrase on the inside.

I love the ribbon and butterfly charm, it adds the prefect accessory, and the ribbon makes an excellent closure for this tri-fold card because of the cards slanted shape it can easily slide off without being untied, loved that idea.

Give the "wave" wild card a try today... and continue following my wild card series... to view all wild cards thus far click here.
