MCT Made In Minutes: Birthday in Paris

by Veronica

Today at My Creative Time we are created projects that can be "Made in Minutes". My sister's birthday is this week, so I made this card for her. I'll try my best to remember to send it out on time.

This card looks more elaborate than it actually is. Using dies and lots of layers is a great way to achieve a detailed design without spending a lot of time.

MCT Products Used
Pretty Butterflies & Dragonfly Dies
Fly Away With Me Sentiments (flag die)
Stitched Postage Frame Die
Springtime in Paris ("Happy Birthday", Eiffel Tower stamp & die)
Build A Scripty & Watercolor Background  (subtle script background in postage die)
Fun Stitched Edges Dies  (scalloped edge)

Fun tip: "Building" your butterflies is easy. Just cut out the shape a few times, trim the pieces and layer them together. Be sure to leave the bottom layer full so that you have a base to build on.

Thank you for stopping by today. You can check out the MCT blog for more great Made In Minutes projects from the other designers.

I hope you were inspired!
