The inspiration for this came from Liza at Hoo's Crafty! I wanted to make sure that the sign was sturdy enough to sit on the fireplace mantel so I picked up a 4x6 at Home Depot and the man was nice enough to cut the 8' board into 2' sections...
The paper is from a DCWV spring stack, the font is cut at 3.5" using Cricut Classic Font, and the butterfly is cut from the birthday cake cartridge, I believe 2.5". I also embossed the top layer of the butterfly with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder and scored down the middle to give it the "flying" effect.
The finished product looks great. I think the 4x6 is a bit thick- sturdy, but thick. A 2x4 might have been sufficient.
Thanks for looking- have a good night.
