May's Free Artist Trading Card Kit of the Month

Here is the Artist Trading Card Kit for the month of May. Every order this month will receive one of these kits for free. May's kit is titled, "Butterfly, Fly".
For this month I chose paper from Die Cuts with a View. It is the 12" x 12" Mariposa pad with beautiful foil accents and glossy glitter (it is a clear gloss over the glitter); just gorgeous! The photos do not do the paper justice! The 12 in. x 12 in. butterfly paper has been cut into 3 in. x 4 in. pieces. The top 4 pieces shown in the photo are 4 examples of one of the cardstock sheet, and the 4 pieces below that are 4 examples of the other cardstock that I have chosen. You will receive two 3 in. x 4 in. pieces, one cut from each 12 in. x 12 in. sheets. I have purchased 2 different filigree butterfly Charms to go with this kit, one small gold butterfly and one larger bronze butterfly. One of these butterfly charms will be in your kit. I have also included a mini chipboard butterfly. You can glitter it, or paint it, then apply glitter, or just glue paper onto the butterfly - it's your masterpiece, so you can use one those techniques, or choose to use one of your own. There will also be about a 4 inch piece of silver foil German Scrap Dresden French Border, and one of the 4 in. x 1 in. pieces of coordinating paper (either the red or yellow shown above). Lastly, an image of a Victorian butterfly (check out the butterflies laid around the kit in the photo above to see just a few of the butterflies) that has been printed on glossy paper and cut out for you to use on your "Butterfly, Fly" ATC Card. And of course, a blank Artist Trading Card and ATC sleeve will also be placed in this kit. Here is an upclose photo of the paper.

Here is a close up view of the paper.

Shown here is another close up of the paper, as well as the 2 different filigree butterfly charms, the little butterfly chipboard piece, and the Silver German Scrap Dresden French Foil Border. We have many different styles and colors to choose from on our store website, so be sure to check that out too. Look under the "German Scrap Dresden Foils" category. These borders look great on artist trading cards.
