Butterfly Cards (using shaving cream technique for background)
Here are some pretty cards I made using some beautiful files from SVGCuts called Bea's 3D Cards and Butterfly Garden Frames. These are cards I actually made for a technique swap in the SVGCuts forum. The technique I used is called the shaving cream technique. On a paper plate, use cheap, foam shaving cream with drops of ink swirled around and then lay the cardstock piece down into the swirls. Wipe it off, and you get this amazing swirled effect! I added a tag which was a freebie called Mom's Name Plate (but it is now retired). Add a little ribbon, sticky pearls and some pretty flower brads and voila'!
