Butterfly cards

I was asked to make cards for our pastors wives (3 pastors, not one pastor with 3 wives) for a celebration. I used the same basic design, just changed the colors. Since there were a lot of people to sign the cards, I made them 4 3/4 x 6 1/4 or something like that. I used the butterfly sizzix die and various designer papers. The black is night and day from the holiday mini, the pink is razzleberry lemonade, and the razzleberry is cottage wall, both from the current catalog. I layered 3 of the oval punches for the sentiment. I have found it really dresses up a card to layer punches and mostly it is scrap cardstock anyway, so doesn't add much cost to the card. I "generation" stamped the butterflies on the envelopes to appear as if they were in flight.
