Double DT Cards

It's Wednesday! So time for another challenge at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge Blog where challenges are always Anything Goes and prizes are awarded from one or more sponsors.  Stop by the blog to check it out!
I made two cards this week, one from each sponsor. My first DT card features a beautiful swallowtail butterfly from Fred She Said. I created a shadow box base to showcase the butterfly, colored with vibrant colors, against a floral backdrop made with an upcycled calendar page. Foliage die cuts, silk flowers, and a sentiment tag finishes the card, which folds flat to fit into a standard A2 envelope.  
·   Digi- Fred She Said (Swallow Tail Butterfly)
·   Colored with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers and Sakura Gelly Roll white gel pen
·   Front Sentiment- Cuddly Buddly Crafts (Sugar and Spice Sentiments Digi Stamps)
·   Assorted cardstock, upcycled calendar paper, and silk flowers from my stash
·   Fancy Foliage Dies- Spellbinders Our Daily Bread Designs
·   Instructions for  3-D shadow box card (found HERE.)

My second DT card for Penny’s Paper Crafty Challenge features a sweet little student from Paper Nest Dolls. Her name is Maddie and she is all ready to go o school… when that is once again allowed! I raided my scrapbook stash of paper, stickers, and back to school theme borders to decorate the card that is sure to brighten some little girls first day back to school.

A friend is having a baby in a few months. I offered to make their announcements, so am creating an assortment of cards from which they can pick their favorite. This is the second option… so far! The image is a freebie that was fun to color. I added a few computer-generated sentiments, paper pieced the little cuties blanket to add some pattern to the gatefold card, and drew stitches with a white gel pen. (I did add a sentiment on the inside of this card, but if my friend chooses this card, I’ll leave the inside blank so they have room to attach a printed announcement.)

·   Sentiments- Computer Generated
