Birthday Butterflies

Hello Classy friends, Diane here with you today!

This week our classy Cards 'n Such challenge is Happy Birthday. What could be any easier then that? I hope you will join us!

For my card today, I wanted to step out of the normal A2 card zone,and create something a bit different! I am sure you all have seen the "Card In A Box" cards that have been popping up all over. I love the look of these cards and after receiving my new Papermania Bellisima A5 Paper Pack papers, I knew I wanted to do one of these cards! The papers are very soft, pastel colors...so pretty!

Other than the base card stock, all my panels and the butterflies were cut from the Bellisima A5 Paper Pack papers.

The dies used for the front panels of the card are the Memory Box Precious Butterflies. The butterflies flying out of the box are from the  Butterfly Trio by Joy Crafts.

For a bit of bling, I added a few Lavender Pearls to some of the butterflies.

If you are wondering how I got my butterflies to float, I cut a few acrylic strips from the packaging some of our products come in, that you would normally throw away.
One of the unique things about this card, is it folds flat for mailing.
A few other products used in the making of my card are:
