Happy Wednesday! I hope you’re having a good week and that you are enjoying the pretty Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance bundle that came out yesterday! I am using it today with the Butterfly Bijou designer series paper and several other items from my stash to make a butterfly Thank You card. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of this post along with the sizes of card stock used.
I cut a panel of the Butterfly Bijou 6″ x 6″ designer series paper with the third largest Stitched Rectangles die. I used the second largest of the long Stitched Rectangles dies to cut another panel of the flip side of this paper to get a contrasting stripe. Then I finally cut it again with the first die to trim the ends so it would fit. I adhered it to the larger die cut DSP and adhered them both to a Magenta Madness mat. I cut a Magenta Madness panel with the middle sized die from the Hippo and Friends dies and embossed it with the Ornate Floral 3D embossing folder.
I stamped the sentiment from the Free as a Bird cling stamp set on a small strip of Basic White in Magenta Madness ink and cut it out with the small label die from the Hydrangea dies. I had a Butterfly Bijou DSP butterfly that was cut out with the Brilliant Wings Dies from the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance bundle and I used the coordinating detailed die to cut a butterfly from Basic White. I adhered the detailed die cut to the DSP butterfly with glue dots in the center.
With all the card elements prepared, I began to assemble the card. I adhered the DSP panel to the center of a So Saffron card base with dimensionals. I adhered the embossed Magenta Madness panel with liquid glue letting it overlap the edge of the panel. I adhered the label and finished with the butterfly. I added Magenta Madness enamel dots to the butterfly and label and the card front was done!
For the inside of the card, I stamped the butterfly from the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance cling stamp set in Magenta Madness on the center of a Basic White panel after stamping off 3 times. This gave me a really soft pink butterfly that you can easily write over. I trimmed the bottom with a strip of Butterfly Bijou DSP and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.
And YES!! I did it – I cut the big butterfly stamp!! I saw another demonstrator do this and it gave me the courage to do the same. This made it so much easier to just ink up the one butterfly on a regular stamp block and stamp in the center of the panel, especially since I stamped off 3 times!! I’ll eventually cut the other butterflies off too, but I need to take baby steps.
I hope you like today’s card. The Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance bundle is so versatile in that there are so many different ways you can combine the stamps and dies to create beautiful butterfly cards and have fun being creative!
