Glitter Butterfly for the New Year

Hello Everybody,

Happy New Year!  2015!  So exciting!  Are you ready?  ;)

Well I hope one of your resolutions is to either be more crafty or to make more cards--LOL!  House of Cards is the right place for you!  Once a month there is a challenge for your card-and you just have to link up!  Check out the site for the rules then for this month get your glitter out--it's time to sprinkle! ;)

Here is my card.  This is the first time I made a gate fold card.  I embossed the "doors" and used my new Silouette (thank you hubby!) to cut the butterfly.  Then I used a thin glue and sprinkled a micro glitter on the butterfly.  The paper for the butterfly, stamp, and ink (eggplant envy) are from Stampin' Up.


Here's a closeup of the butterfly.


And here is the inside.


I was in a clean and simple mood-but you can use any style you like. 

Until next time my friends..,Happy New Year!  Let's make it a crafty one! :)
