Butterfly Cards - Thoughtful Thursday

Hi my friends!  Today is Thoughtful Thursday with My Creative Time.  I made 2 cards today using two different sayings from the Vintage Stitched Label Sentiments stamp set.  I also used My Creative Time's Chunky Jar Accessories and Vintage Label Dies.
 
 
I got the shape for the layer pieces from the Elegant Edges Cricut Cartridge.  I used my Gypsy to create the exact height and length I wanted.
 
 
The butterfly Embossing folder is from the "Once Upon A Princess" pack from Provocraft.  I was very tempted to curl up the label before attaching it, but I will be mailing this card so I kept it flat.
 
This is another version of the same design.  When I use my Cricut I like to do a bunch of cuts at a time and fill up my stash of cards.  This card worked well because it is suitable for a bunch of different occasions!
 

Additional Supplies I Used:
Aqua Mist Card Stock and Vintage Buttons  -  Papertrey Ink
For the Record 2 6x6 Paper Pad  -  Echo Park
Watercolor Garden 12 x12 Paper Pad  -  K&Company
Evergreen Bough Distress Ink
White Hemp  -  Crafters Square
 
That is it for me today!  There are plenty more "Thoughtful Thursday" projects over at My Creative Time!
I hope you have a great day!
