Layering 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 simple layering Butterfly cards using the patterned paper from ModaScrap “Let your soul Bloom” collection that was included in the Simon Says Stamp May card kit. Besides the patterned papers, I’m also using for the die-cutting part the February’s Large Die of the month by Spellbinders. Which, happens to be this beautiful butterfly die. That being said keep on reading the post ↓
So, for the first example I used two of the patterned papers from the collection to create the card panel layers. Once, the colors were selected I trimmed the edges of the solid Old Rose tone until I had a panel that measured H 5’’ 1/4 X W 4” Then, I trimmed the butterfly patterned paper down to H 5” X W 3” 3/4. Right after, I adhered the backed of the butterfly patterned paper panel to the solid panel with double sided tape. Lastly, I adhered the backed of it to an A2 side folding white card base. For the die-cutting part, as I mentioned earlier I used the Spellbinders butterfly die which I ran through the die cutting machine to die-cut all of the four layers out of white card stock. I’d like to mention that this particular die comes with four different layering dies for the butterfly+ a few more dies that complete the butterfly parts, and more. So, as you can see I stacked together all of the layer for the butterfly along with the body part which I die-cut out of rose gold glitter paper to contrast the patterned papers. Right afterwards, when all of the butterfly layers were stacked together I adhered the whole butterfly to the card on one of the sides of the card. But, before that I decided to add a piece of metallic rose gold thread as an extra embellishment. As, for the sentiment I layered a sentiment that I had previously cut out of the Simon Says Stamp Sentiment Strip Set on top of a leftover piece from the same solid old rose tone which right after, I adhered to the card with foam mounting tape.
For the second example I kept the same idea using a solid color, and a patterned paper. However, I made some changes for the die-cutting part.
So, I die-cut out vellum the top, and the bottom layers of the butterfly. Then, I die-cut the third layer out of white card stock, and last but not least I die-cut the second layer out of one of the watercolor patterned papers from the same collection. As, you can see? I adhered the solid light pink card panel to an A2 side folding white card base, and I adhered on top of it in a wonky way the floral patterned paper. Soon after, I adhered a piece of metallic light silver thread as an embellishment followed by the butterfly which I adhered on one of the sides of the card, along with a sentiment that I had previously cut out of the same sentiment strip set.
To finish both cards off I covered all of the layers from both butterflies with shimmer by using Nuvo Shimmer Pen, and for more shine I adhered a few crystal clear sequins here and there for a shiny/sparkly look.
