MCT Thrifty Thursday: Butterfly Anniversary Card

by Veronica

A few weeks ago, The Hubs and I were at Home Depot picking out paint colors for our front door and exterior entrance. As we were browsing the paint swatches, I noticed a little pamphlet with color combo ideas.

I really loved the different color ideas inside the pamphlet and figured I could maybe use the itty bitty swatches that were included. Sure enough - I did!

This anniversary card is for my other brother and sister-in-law who will be celebrating 9 years married this month. I cut the small butterflies out of the paint swatches in the pamphlet and kept the rest of the card very airy and white.

This card is super clean and simple, but has such an elegant feel. The sentiment was created by combining two stamp sets.

MCT Products Used
Pretty Butterflies & Dragonfly Dies
Vintage Stitched Label Dies (sentiment banner)
Chocolate Greetings ("HAPPY")
Happy Thoughts ("anniversary!")

Thanks so much for stopping by! You can check out more thrifty projects on Emma's blog.
