Butterflies

Spring will be here before you know! I’m ready and thank goodness North Carolina (my area anyway), has not seen snow nor ice! I fell in love with this Butterflies Bundle the minute I laid eyes on it!  I wanted the butterfly to be the star of this card, so I kept it simple, sweet and easy.  This is a quick hit card when you need one.

  1. Cut a 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ piece of Wisteria Wonder Cardstock and fold it in half (score at 4 1/4″) .  This is your base.
  2. Cut 2 – 5 1/4″ x 4″ piece of Whisper White Cardstock. One will be used for the inside of card.
  3. Stamp the greeting or sentiment of your choice in Wisteria Wonder in the bottom left hand corner. I used the Thinking of You from the Sheltering Tree set.
  4. The background is stamped using the Work Of Art in Pistachio Pudding & Wisteria Wonder ink. The butterflies are stamped in So Saffron from the Perpetual Birthday Calendar Collection.
  5. Adhere the white cardstock to the base.  
  6. TIP: Make the Inside of your card stand out as well.  I stamped a Wisteria Wonder whisp and added a set of butterflies to mimic the outside only a smaller version in the left hand corner.
  7. Use the Big Shot and the large butterfly framelit in Elegant Eggplant Cardstock.  Hint: I use Wax paper to allow the butterfly to pull away from the framelit.  The layers in order are Magnetic Plate – Clear Platform – Elegant Eggplant Cardstock – Wax paper – Framelit – Clear Platform.
  8. Adhere the butterfly to the cardstock using a stampin’ up dimensional.
  9. Dazzle the butterfly with Rhinestone jewels.
