I designed front and back side of the cards (including sentiments) in computer and printed them out. Ran all 12 pieces through Guttlebug with Spellbinders Nestabilities - Lacy Circles. Added faux stitching with green Stabilo point pen and some Stanger Pearl Paste liquid pearls - Pearl White. Punched out lots of butterflies with Heyda Butterfly punch. Glued them down to cards and added the same Pearl Paste on to their bodies.
In the middle of card pieces is added a wooden stick. Cards with sticks are put in to the pots of Hot Chilly plants.
Plant pots are covered with leftover strips of punched butterflies. Rest of the butterflies are glued down to the pot and plant leaves with Floral Adhesive. It's simple and adorable project. I hope that receivers are happy to get them :o)
