Create a Butterfly Card Using the Little Lamb Baby Collection!

The Little Lamb collection is not just for babies! There are plenty of neutral papers, stickers and embellishments that can work for all kinds of occasions and themes such as birthdays, trips to the farm and zoo, springtime and more! Take a look at how blog contributor Sandie used it to make a beautiful card for Mother’s Day!

Sandie’s Story:

Growing up, my mum was always scrapbooking. I think I have upwards of 10 scrapbooks from my childhood, so naturally, I’ve always wanted to follow in her footsteps. She called it “Playing with Paper” and I always thought she was SO great at it. It’s interesting that I went to an art school to get a degree in Graphic Design not realising that I was sort of following suit. I absolutely LOVE scrapbooking but even more than that, I love making cards!

While the materials I used for this card were from the Little Lamb baby collection, I found cute butterflies within the mix. My mum loves butterflies, so I thought it was a perfect mix for her Mother’s Day card.
