May's Free Artist Trading Card Kit is "Butterfly Fairies"

Here is the May 2012 ATC Kit of the Month titled, "Butterfly Fairies"
Each May Artist Trading Card kit will include 2 - 3 in. x 4 in. papers (an aqua blue with white pocka dots, and a coordinating newsprint butterfly piece), and a collage image of the mushroom, a butterfly and a vintage child.  These images will need to be cut out and layered in order to create your own butterfly fairy to mount onto the background of your choice.  This kit also includes a piece of olive green satin ribbon, an orange twill, as well as an olive green leaf ribbon.  I have also printed out the words Believe, Fairy, Wings and Butterfly.  You can use one word, combine 2 words or use them all; it's your choice.  Just cut them apart, ink them, and just glue.  There is also a silver butterfly side-view charm, a 2 1/2 in. x 3 1/2 in. blank white ATC card and now finally back in stock, a new vellum glassine 3 in. x 4 1/2 in. envelope to place your completed ATC into.
  Here is the link to the glassine envelopes if you would like to purchase them:  http://youratcstore.com/atc-sleevesenvelopes-c-27.html


Here are the 3 different butterflies and a few of the vintage children that will be chosen for the kit. 


Here is my Butterfly Fairy Artist Trading Card that I made from the items in the May kit.  I cut two of the butterflies out of the newsprint butterfly paper and attached them to the olive green leaf ribbon.  You can also see how I cut out, arranged and glued the 3 collage images (the mushroom, butterfly and vintage child).   I chose the 2 words "Fairy" and "Wings", cut and inked them to match too.
