One and only

Hello Blogger friends. I have been so busy playing with my cute "ants" and "beach" files that I almost forgot  about the City Crafter Blog Challenge this week.
Oh well, it was time to make something pretty anyway :)

The challenge is to use the number one.
(although I guess that was a little obvious...LOL)
I decided to make this "1" shaped card. The tag reads "and only" (for one and only).
It is hard to read in the picture.

I made the cut file and templates for the "1" card. It could be used for a 1st birthday, 1st step,etc.)

I cut the butterfly from a cut file I bought from Lettering Delights. Then ran it through my Xyron and added clear micro-marbles. (I know I use those a lot, but they make things look soo pretty)

I wanted to use the seam binding that I dyed in Stream Alcohol ink and rubbing alcohol, so I chose a neutral background. I added some trim I got from Joann's and a hat pin I dyed with Stream.

I finished it off with some patterned paper that I pleated and a line of pearl trim.

Hope you enjoyed it.

Here is the link to the svg cut files and pdf template for the

I have made lots of cool beach item shaped cards and finally finished the birdhouse files.
Will share those soon.
