Butterfly cards

I have shown you this general design before.  This is just a little twist on it.  The bottom card is a package of 6 cards and shows how I package them for sale.  In my About Me section I tell that I sell cards and donate the money to Missions at my church.  I am actually going to try and figure out this summer how to hook my blog to a Paypal account and see if I can sell some cards here. If not I will try and do it through etsy, I just have to pay the % to them.  I donate 100% of the money I collect.  It all goes to support Missions that work with especially Aids victims in Africa.  Shade is the specific organization.  I also support UMCOR, a charity arm of the Methodist church.
Enough about me.  The cards are 4 1/4x5 1/2 white cardstock.  A 4x2 3/4 piece of solid cardstock and the same size of patterned paper are adhered together.  A length of ribbon is knotted at the seam.  White cardstock is cut with PTI Mat Stack 2 and stamped with Mat Stack 2 Collection stamp in coordinating ink.  Butterflies were cut using Love Lives here die.  I use the pearl/rhinestone strip from the Recollections brand at Michael's.  It is double wide so I trim it in half and cut 3 stones.  They put these on sale or use your weekly 40%.  They go a LONG way and are VERY convenient.  Since I used solid cardstock on the bottom, I just stamped my sentiment directly on the card. 
Thank you for looking at my blog!
