A good of friend of mine who runs her own business as a esthetician recently relocated her business. To congratulate her on the growth of her business and the new location, I wanted to make something for her to celebrate this new beginning....
I created this 12x12 sign with the help of my Big Shot and Stampin Up dies and materials, and my Cricut, which I really should use a bit more. I started with Stampin Up's Pocketful of Posies DSP (retired - from 2011-2012 catalog), and moved forward from there.
The larger butterflies were cut with the Big Shot and SU's Beautiful Butterflies Die and more Pocketful of Posies DSP. For the bodies of the butterflies, I used SU's Chantilly Lace ribbon.
The letters were created using my Cricut machine and Cricut Lyrical Letters cartridge. Cricut has these awesome markers that you can use with the machine to first draw the image before you cut it so that the image has a nice outline. Essentially, you remove cutting blade and insert the marker in its place, select your image and have the Cricut draw. Then remove the marker and put the cutting blade back, re-select the image and let the machine cut it out. Here, I used SU's Pear Pizazz (retired, 2010-2012 In Color) for the letters.
My friend really liked this little gift I made her, and she already put it up in her shop!
