#2 Butterfly ATC with a fold

Created this Artist Trading Card ATC with a Butterfly theme, flowers & a fold. Used a Butterfly image from Cricut Explore library that it indicates I'm subscribed to. I bought the Cricut Explore Air & with it rcvd 1 mth free subscription to Cricut library of images. I typed in Butterfly for it to search for images and found this Butterfly that is 2 pieces: background with Butterfly edge & Butterfly itself. I now know the image is from Damask Decor.

Used Kraft cardstock. Recycled a cracker box/chipboard for back of Kraft for sturdiness. Stamped sentiment. Added twine.

  1. Love that you recycled a box to create this lovely card!! I love ATC's! I'm glad you're having fun with your Explore! As far as I know, the way you can tell which cartridge your cut is from us when you're selecting the image you click on the little i in the bottom right corner of the image box and it brings up the name of the cut and then gives you a link to the image (view image set). Hope that helps! Thanks for joining us at FCCB!!

    1. Thank you. I clicked on the little i and it indicated Damask Decor. I updated my post ro reflect that.
