Butterfly Brilliance Week – Project 1

Happy Monday!

Here it is gloomy and we are expecting some snow! I love snow, but so much in March, LOL. My card kind of resembles my feelings about the weather. It is actually a card inspired by a Stampin’ Up! Demo in Australia named Ann Alexander.

I used Basic Black for my card base that measures 8-1/2″x5-1/2″ and is scored at 4-1/4″ for a smooth fold.

Next, I used Basic White to cut the butterflies from. I used the Brilliant Wings Die set that is available for pre-order from the upcoming 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. I then glued the butterflies directly onto the card base using our Fine Tip Glue. To make sure they stayed on where I placed them, I put an acrylic block on them for a few minutes to add pressure while the glue dried.

Once they were all on, I used my Wink of Stella pen to add some bling. This also helps to hide the glue spots that might have popped up. Ask me what prompted the Wink of Stella, LOL!

On a scrap piece of Basic White I stamped my sentiment using the Thank You from the Sweet Ice Cream Photopolymer Stamp Set. It is one of my favorite scripted Thank Yous and it is large! I then matted it with a scrap of Basic Black and glued it to the card front using dimensionals.

Next, I cut out a butterfly from the Butterfly Bijou 6″x6″ Designer Series Paper. What is cool about this DSP is that one of the sheets of butterflies matches the large butterfly die. This allows you to cut out all 6 butterflies at once. It was very handy to prep for this week’s projects. I have about 40 butterflies cut from cardstock in my stash right now from just a few cuts!

I added some Wink of Stella to make the wings sparkle and gently folded them up along the body. I used our Foam Adhesive Strips on the body to make it look like it is flying off of the card.
