Playing Along with CAS-Fridays

I was pretty inspired by using craft plastic in my last post and when I saw this challenge over at CAS-Fridays I knew I might be able to use it again :)  They are looking for clean and simple baby projects and I wanted to make something that was simply stated.

Please take a look:
I found some great white and silver polka dot paper and cut out some butterflies using my Gazelle.  I added craft plastic to the cut out piece and I stamped the sentiment using Mementos London Fog to add that little touch without being too bold.  I adhered this wonderful coral pink paper to the card base and popped up the butterfly cut piece on 3D foam.  I hope you like it!

Playing along over at Young Crafters Unite!

I bought some Clear Craft Plastic a while back and I'm always trying to find new ways to use it.  When I found this challenge over at Young Crafters Unite!  I knew I wanted to play along. 

Here is the challenge:

And here is my card:

Here is a pic showing the plastic:
I cut out the heart piece with my Gazelle and adhered a rectangle underneath using the craft plastic.  I used Echo Park's This & That paper on the card front underneath each of the hearts and popped up the heart piece using 3d foam.  What I loved most about this technique is the added stability to the 3D piece and the shine the plastic adds to the project.  Please enjoy!
