This week I’m going to do a little medley of butterfly cards. Here’s the first one that I absolutely love, and I’ll probably make this same statement all week. I think this is a very pretty and simple card to create with very little stamping.
First off, I stamped the Whisper White Cardstock with the background stamp from the Touches of Textures Stamp Set with Basic Gray Classic Ink, and adhered it to my Lemon Lime Twist card base.
I attached a piece of Basic Black Cardstock to a piece of Lemon Lime Twist gingham paper from the Gingham Gala 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper (DSP) pack and adhered those layers to the Whisper White textured layer.
I used the Layering Oval Framelits Dies to cut a couple of butterflies from the FREE Sale-A-Bration Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper and also for the Basic Black scalloped oval and attached each of them with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
The greeting was stamped with Tuxedo Memento Black Ink onto Whisper White cardstock and cut out using the NEW Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies.
The oval with the designer butterflies and black scalloped oval were adhered down flat as was the white layer for the greeting on to the black layer which I cut with my Stampin Trimmer. I then popped up that layer with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
The little butterfly that you see in the corner was punched out from the FREE Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper with the New Butterfly Duet Punch.
The sentiment on the inside was stamped with Tuxedo Memento Black Ink and is from the Painted Harvest Stamp Set. Even with the sentiment, there’s still room to write a message. I also added a strip of the Gingham Gala 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper to coordinate with the front of the card and again used the Butterfly Duet Punch to cut out 3 small butterflies from the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper and adhered them to the gingham strip with Mini Glue Dots.
Lemon Lime Twist Card Base – 4 1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5 1/2″
Whisper White Layer for the Front and Inside – 4″ x 5 1/4″
Basic Black Layer – 2 1/4″ x 5 1/4″
Gingham Gala 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper – 2″ x 5 1/4″ and for Inside – 3/4″ x 4″
