Anna Griffin Butterfly Card

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Today's card is inspired by Anna Griffin Garden Butterfly Card. Anna's card can be made using the Make It Now feature on Cricut Design Space. I do not own all the images that are shown on Anna's card, so I was unable to use that feature.

Cricut Cartridges:
Anna's Garden Cards and Embellishments - Card is cut from white cardstock at 10" wide- measures 5"x7". I cut two blush pink liners-one for face of card behind the butterfly cutouts and one for inside of card. The three butterflies are cut 2.75" wide, 2.50" wide, and 2.25" wide which look larger than those on the featured card. The phrase Life Is A Journey is also on this cartridge. It is written with the midnight pen on the label.
Sophisticated Soiree - Flourish Label is cut from white cardstock at 3.76" wide and from the pink at 3.92" wide.
Butterflies and Sentiment Label are pop-dotted on the card. I added Petaloo burlap blossoms to accent the card. The pink heart formed bow is Memory Thread.

I really love the sentiments that are on Anna's Garden Cards and Embellishments. I have used the Life is a Journey sentiment on another card. This card will work well for a bridal or anniversary card.
