Butterfly Greeting Cards
Hi friends, welcome back to another blog post! On today’s blog I’ll be sharing with you how I made these two clean, and simple Butterflies cards featuring the washitape, and the paper pattern included in the Simon Says Stamp May card kit. So, without further ado keep on reading the post ↓
For today’s examples I started by scoring in half two A2 standard size white side folding card bases, Then, I trimmed down the edges of two white card panels sightly smaller than the card bases. Once, I had the white card panels ready I used the washitape included on the May card kit to add pieces in different sizes to them. As you can see for my first example I adhered the pieces in a diagonal direction, then I used two butterflies dies to create the die cuttings. The first one that I used was Adeline Butterfly Die to cut out of vellum, and I used it as a shadow layer for both butterflies for this card. Next I used Stitching Butterflies Die to cut the butterflies out of one of the paper patterns included in this kit, and I used them as the top layer for the butterflies. And, for the butterflies body I used the body die that is included in the Adeline butterfly die to cut out of black glitter card stock. Once, I had all of the die cutting done I layered the butterflies pieces by adhering them with liquid glue, as soon as I was done adhering them I set them aside while I started working the second card panel.
For the second example I kept the same idea, however I adhered the pieces of whashitape in a vertical direction. Then, I repeated the same steps to create the butterflies die cutting. Once, I had the butterflies ready for the second card panel I started the layouts for both cards.
For the card panels layouts I adhered the card panels to each of the card bases that I had previously scored in half. Then, I white heat embossed two different sentiments in pieces of black card stock. For one of the cards I used a sentiment included in the Delicate Flowers stamp set included in the May card kit. And, for the second card I used a sentiment from the Tiny Words Encouragement stamp set. Soon after I was done with the white heat embossing I trimmed them down. Then, adhered the butterflies to each card panel, as you can see I adhered them in the lower and upper sides of the cards leaving the center space empty for the sentiments. As, for the sentiments I adhered them to the card panels with foam mounting tape to add a little bit of dimension.
Finally, to finish the cards off I covered the butterflies with shimmer by using the Aqua Shimmer Pen, and to add a little bit more shine I adhered a few peachy color sequins here and there.
