MFP New Set - Swallowtail Mini

This is my "off week" during the MFP Blog Hop, but I did make two cards using today's set -- the Swallowtail mini set.  This is a 3" x 4" set with one large butterfly and four sentiments.  I decided to make a telescoping card with this set (as well as one small butterfly from Scenic Selections).


Here is the card "telescoped" open.  The center section is cut from a piece of patterned vellum.


My second card is a more traditional A2 card on which I pierced around the edges, a technique I enjoy.


I hope you check out the entire Blog Hop.  You can get started at the Mark's Finest Papers blog.
