The bright green cover shows butterflies munching on leaves. Open the card to an astonishing scene of 18 hand-assembled yellow butterflies flying off the page. We call this card Butterfly Kisses.
The butterflies’ wing patterns are loosely based on Tiger Swallowtails or Monarchs, but in bright blue and sunny yellow.
This is a light-hearted, good feeling card for a birthday, a gardener, a memorial. It would make a pretty baby shower invitation, sympathy card, Mother’s Day card, an engagement announcement. You can give it to a graduate to say “spread your wings and fly!” For good luck, transformation, for friendship.
Q. What do you call a group of butterflies?
A. Officially they are called a kaleidoscope, but it’s OK to call them a swarm.
FYI: Groups of caterpillars are called an army.
Q. How do you give a Butterfly Kiss?
A. All you have to do is move your face close so that you are almost touching your partner’s face, and flutter your eyelids rapidly, so he or she feels like being kissed by the delicate wings of a butterfly.
Butterflies are flying gardens.
I am not my memories, I am my dreams.
You give me butterflies!
Today a caterpillar, tomorrow a butterfly.
Hoy una oruga, mañana una mariposa.
If nothing ever changed, there’d be no butterflies.
My butterfly is an honor roll student
Butterflies are self propelled flowers. ~R.H. Heinlein
Butterfly kisses and birthday wishes.
BYOB – bring your own butterflies
The caterpillar does all the work but the butterfly gets all the publicity. ~George Carlin
Beautiful and graceful, varied and enchanting, small but approachable, butterflies lead you to the sunny side of life.
“Butterfly Kisses” is a song written by Bob Carlisle for his daughter Brooke’s 16th birthday
