I named myself The Crafting Professor, since I'm a crafter, and I'm a college professor. I went through many, many years of graduate school, and the best source of relaxation and stress relief was being in my craft room or going to a local crop. Back then, I never told anyone that I was a full-time graduate student. I was waiting for the day I would scrapbook my graduation page. Now, I run the ScrapbookerPhD challenge blog (http://scrapbookerphd.blogspot.com), and am bringing my passion for crafting and teaching together. But here, at The Crafting Professor, I'm just sharing my work with like-minded crafters from all over the world.

Butterfly Friendship

It's time for another card challenge with Cardz TV stamps.Our challenge this week is Butterflies! I absolutely love using butterflies as an accent, so this time, I trie using butterflies as a focal point. Don't forget to check out all of our design team inspirations. 

For my project, I used the SVG base card from Birds Cards. It's the simple double square mat with the six butterflies cut out. I used a bright red polka dot pattern paper as my insert. I added meta flowers, a metal-isn looking paper for the heart banner die-cut, and black gems. 

On the inside, I decorated with a patterned paper, cut out butterflies, and the sentiment from the Cardz TV  set, Just Saying set. 

I am really excited about this butterfly-spring inspired card, and I know exactly who I want to give it to.
