Butterfly card

I love these bright colors. This is a simple shaped card. I wasn't sure what to do for the antenna but I decided to use my new bakery twine. I purchased it at The Twinery. The price was good and the shipping was quick. Check them out!

The butterfly was the third one from LD's Sweet Spring SVG collection.
It was a simple card with a shadow for the background fill and then a shadow for the base.

I designed the card in MTC, and then exported to png, and printed and cut from Sil Studio on the Silhouette.  Here is a screen shot of my layout. Notice that there is a cut shape within the greyed area at the left. I have found that I can cut from that area (just stay within the red line) as long as there is nothing printed in the grey area (notice that the blue printed area does not cross over into the grey-shaded area). I have also moved the registration marks to the smallest margin (0.395) and reduced them in size to 10 mm. This gives me a little more real estate on my page.  And I still get very accurate PnC cards!

The card is joined at the top and the yellow butterfly is popped up. 

And Lettering Delights has released some new svgs today. Don't they make you think of warn sunny days at the beach? Just in time for summer cards or summer scrapbook layouts. The Something Fishy collection is even on sale now. These are definitely on my wish list!
