Paper Players 345

It turned out to be another nice day, I’m sure that our luck will run out soon enough! I did get some crafting done, sent out a few packages and got to play with my little buddy Daniel. He rode his big wheel back and forth between my Parent’s house and mine, thinks he’s such a big boy! When he gets here he opens the door and walks right in! We all had dinner together and then I headed over to Heather’s for an early Thirsty Thursday with her and Steph. A nice day was had by me! πŸ˜€

The Paper Players have a fun challenge this week and so I’m sharing my card for it with you today…

I have had the Concord & 9th Butterfly Card Dies and I don’t think that I have used to make the interlocking card until now! I used Neenah Desert Storm 80lb Card Stock and die cut the card parts and then the wings. I scored and folded my card, whichΒ is a note card size and used the card dies to cut out some Pool Party to adhere behind the wings. My greeting is from the Concord & 9th Butterfly Beauty Photopolymer Stamp Set and is heat embossed in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder onto another strip of Desert Storm and adhered to the card with 3M Foam Tape. I happened to have some Note Card size Kraft Envelopes so I stamped the small butterflies from the set in Soft Pool onto the front. Love that interlocking butterfly, such a fun and different kind of card! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Paper Players challenge! Thank you very much for visiting with me! Have a terrific Thursday! πŸ™‚

  1. Oh, this interlocking feature is such a cool trick! No belly bands needed ;-). Love color choice and beautifully CAS. Thank you for joining us at The Paper Players!

  2. Hi Justin:

    Since I love cards with Butterflies you can bet that I love this card. I never saw interlocking butterflies before but it sure makes for a fabulous card. Putting the solid pool party die behind the intricate die really makes it “pop”. I would so love to see a video on this interlocking butterfly die. So different and so beautiful.

    Glad to hear you had a great day and boy, Daniel sure is growing up if he can ride his big wheel to your place “all the way” from Grandma’s to your place. Quite the independent little one eh? LOL I’m still playing catch up. You have yourself a tee-rific Thursday and enjoy your Memorial Day weekend. Not sure what the weather will be here but whatever it is won’t put a damper on our holiday. Love and hugs to you my friend. XXOO πŸ™‚

    1. Hello Grace!
      Thank you! I do love a butterfly too! They are Mum’s favorite! I think that Concord has a video on the dies. I’ll see if I can find it and send you a link!
      Daniel is getting to be very big! He thinks he’s so clever! LOL! I hope that you are having a good week! Love and hugs to you too! XOXO πŸ™‚

  3. I love these interacting dies, they add so much to your card. Great creation.

    i’m glad you have the beautiful weather, actually I’m jealous. We are on our 7th day of cold, gloom and rain. Depressing

    1. Thanks Linda! I love them too!
      Don’t worry, we have the rain and gloom too! LOL! πŸ™‚
