Fluttering By with Thanks

I just had a card-making workshop a couple nights ago and gave out some door prizes, two of which were sets of 3 handmade note cards. So I'm starting to replenish my supply for the next workshop! 


This little CAS card went together very quickly, but the next 3 will be even faster! The green "grass" is cut from a 4"x 8" piece of print cs. On the back I drew a line at 2" across the 8" length. I randomly cut grass blades up and down keeping the center line in the middle so half of the blade was above and half below (or close). That way the part on top that is cut away can be turned upside down and used as another "grass" piece. The 8" pieces were cut in half, giving me 4 of them...so 4 cards have a quick start! The butterfly is printed and die cut 4 times so I can color all 4 at the same time. I used the Fun Stampers Journey matching sets, "Enjoy the Journey" stamps and "Butterflies" dies. The butterfly is colored with alcohol markers and adhered with a couple foam squares. The 'Thank You' sentiment, and the butterfly are stamped with dark brown FSJ ink, and the twine is colored with that ink to match.
Other ingredients: 'Thank You' from stamp set called "Greet & Shout" -FSJ
The kraft card stock, white and print are Fun Stampers Journey as well as the twine ('natural')
