WHITE BUTTERFLIES

I needed to make a card for a First Communion and I was inspired by a lot of white-on-white cards that I have seen lately. I somewhat cased them giving it my own twist.

It's kind of like a tri-fold. The square is a flap that tucks under the big butterfly and keeps the card closed. I cut it from the Glossy White card stock to have a little contrast by playing with different textures. Except for the "Congratulations" there is no stamping involved. I used my Big Shot with several embossing folders and a die for the butterflies. The sentiment is heat embossed with silver embossing powder. Since it was for a First Communion I added a littele silver cross pendant.
