Butterfly Basics Clean and Simple

Today I want to share a Butterfly Basics clean and simple card idea. It has been one of my most re-pinned cards on Pinterest, long before I knew how to watermark my pictures. I'm sure I got this idea and CASE'd it a long time ago from someone else on Pinterest.

The sentiment I chose for this set came from Thoughts and Prayers. Butterflies are a great addition to sympathy cards as well as any other need. I also made a set of these for Birthdays. I used a retired set of washi tape to decorate the card and then used the other two tapes to decorate the envelope.

Washi Tape isn't for everyone. There are other things you can use like a stamped image, slices of Designer Series Papers, or water color brush strokes. I happen to like washi tape because of its transparency in places. Just about every set meant to be used on Baby and Nursery paper crafts are my favorite! LOL The soft colors just make me happy!
