Good morning! Welcome to the February Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop! The theme for this month’s hop is “Celebrate Spring” and I used the sweet Stampin’ Up! Best Butterflies bundle to make a simple fun fold Birthday card. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
I adhered a panel of Starry Sky Butterfly Kisses 6″ x 6″ designer series paper to a panel of Crushed Curry card stock with liquid glue. I adhered a panels of floral butterfly Butterfly Kisses 6″ x 6″ designer series paper to the front and inside panels of the Crushed Curry mini card and adhered the mini card to the front of the main card base with liquid glue.
I cut two Basic White circles with the second largest Stylish Shapes circle die. On the first one, I stamped the dots from the Stampin’ Up! Best Butterflies photopolymer stamp set in Crushed Curry ink several times. I cut a Fresh Freesia scalloped circle using the second largest scalloped circle from the Layering Circles die and adhered it to the back of the stamped Basic White circle with liquid glue. I adhered it to the mini card front flap, being careful to apply the adhesive to only one side of the circle.
I cut two sets of wings using the Butterfly Builder dies in the Stampin’ Up! Best Butterflies bundle from different patterns of the Butterfly Kisses 6″ x 6″ DSP. I cut a large butterfly body from Starry Sky and adhered the wings to the body with glue dots to make the large butterfly on the front. I adhered the butterfly to the circle with dimensionals.
I stamped the sentiment from the Sweetest Cherries stamp set in Versamark ink on Starry Sky. I sprinkled it with white embossing powder and shook off the excess. I heated the powder with my heat tool until it was bright and shiny and cut it out with the skinny long banner from the Stylish Shapes dies. I adhered it to the mini card, being careful to apply the adhesive to the left side of the label.
I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Best Butterflies stamp set in Starry Sky ink on the second die cut circle. I adhered the circle to the inside of the mini card under the front flap circle. I cut the large butterfly from Starry Sky and the smaller butterfly from Calypso Coral and adhered them to the inside with liquid glue.
I finished the card with gold adhesive sequins around the mini card. I like how I can extend the mini card front design into the inside with the die cuts, DSP and sequins!
A happy, colorful butterfly birthday card to Celebrate Spring! This was a fun card to make and the Stampin’ Up Best Butterflies bundle is fun to play with – you can make all sorts of butterflies!
