April 2012 Hip Kit… Beautiful Card by Melanie Jarocki…

Melanie here today to share a very light, airy card  that I made using our April Hip Kit.  The idea for this card came from the tiny "You make my heart flutter" sticker on the Jillibean Soup sticker sheet.

Because the sentiment was tiny, I didn’t want it overpowered by any embellishments. So I decided to keep the color light and have the embellishments blend into the background. Adding in the flower brad and the twine "grounds" the card, giving the eye somewhere to begin looking at the card.

I used both sides of the Crate Paper floral and pink diagonal stripe paper, for the layers and the butterflies. To give the sentiment sticker some balance with it’s darker pink color, I added in the heart and star stickers, too.

For more dimension to the card, I pulled up the wings of the butterflies after adhering the center of each on to the card with mini glue dots.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Make sure to visit tomorrow for another awesome project created with our April Hip Kit.  Happy scrapping!
