“Everything comes to you in the right moment.  Be Patient. Be Grateful.” Inspirational quotes, flowers and butterflies combined work together to create beautiful card fronts. I love the simplicity of sentiment framed with the addition of foliage stems and flowers.  My project today was made using the Rubbernecker 3020 Butterflies are Free, 5132D Rectangle Combo #2 OPC, 5128D Tree Panel #25114D Mini Flower Stack and 5100-08 Small Butterfly.  You can find the mini flower and small butterfly grouped together in the Kittie Kraft Basics set.

Inspirational quotes, flowers and butterflies create an encouraging focal point on a card front.

The Frame

I attached the three sections of the frame together using double stick tape.   Next I attached thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and attached the tree foliage to the mounting tape.

Inspirational quotes, flowers and butterflies are an encouraging focal point on a card front.

Inspirational Quotes, Flowers and Butterflies

I stamped the sentiment on the card base using versa,  embossed with super fine gold embossing powder and then attached the frame and foliage to the card base. The tiny flowers were formed using my stylus and molding pad and attached to the foliage using glossy accents. The pre made white Nuvo Crystal Drops were attached to each flower center using glossy accents.  I attached one tiny flower and leaves to the small butterfly with glossy accents and attached it to the card base using glossy accents for the finish.  The pretty gold embossing on the sentiment did not show up well in the photos.

Inspirational quotes, flowers and butterflies are the perfect focal point on a card front.

Do you like to use inspirational quotes, flowers and butterflies on your card front?  Have you been inspired to pull out your toys and create an inspirational card?  I always like to have a few on hand when you need one to send to a family member or friend for encouragement.
