Cards are a great way to send messages to those who are special to us. There are many card topics and many ways to design cards. One way is to use butterfly embellishments. It is a wonderful symbol that can bring elegance to any card. Here are some samples of homemade cards that use butterfly embellishments.

Thank You. A thank you card is an encouraging sentiment that can be simply stated. With just some text and a large butterfly sticker, image, or paper piercing, you can make an attractive card.

Invitation. Butterflies make attractive embellishments on any invitation. For a spring party I thought a butterfly would be a perfect addition.

Announcement. Butterflies on announcement cards are particularly fitting since butterflies symbolize transformation. The change created in our lives by a new marriage, new baby or new home are important changes in our lives.

General. Butterflies can be added to any card, any design. For this card I just added a butterfly to the card for a final touch.

Photo Cards. When designing photo cards on the computer, remember to add graphics and text that highlight the photograph. If you have an Easter or spring theme then butterflies would add a nice touch. In my Easter card I added a doodled butterfly peeking out of one side of the photograph.

Remember to use your butterfly graphics, stickers, chipboard, images and other embellishments when designing butterfly cards. They add a beautiful touch.
