Fred Bear With Butterfly


Hi everybody,

It Saturday which means it is time for another challenge with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. Being a brand new month we have a brand new hostess which is Mercy Kerin.

Mercy has challenge us to use either pleated ribbon or paper on our creations.

For my card today I used the new “Fred Bear has a Butterfly” set which was released by MFT Stamps earlier on in the week. … the butterflies are actually individual stamps so you can stamp them wherever you want or leave them out whichever your heart desires.

The layout of my card is based on a recent SFYTT sketch challenge. I decided to use ribbon that I pleated on my card, I love how it turned out! Pleating ribbon takes a little bit longer then just tying a bow but I think it was worth it.


Here is the inside of my card using the other sentiment and the butterflies included in the set.

Don't forget to check out the rest of the “Crazies” cards over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and also their individual blogs for more details.

Stamps: Fred Bear with Butterflies – MFT Stamps
