I wanted to keep this butterfly card light and “dreamy creamy.” What do you think?
I usually use Basic White, but Very Vanilla would work well with what I had in mind. The card base is Thick Very Vanilla, 8 1/2 X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″, with rounded corners, which I made with the Detailed Trio Punch.
The rounded corners match the rounded corners of Very Vanilla Cardstock that was cut with the largest Ornate Layers Die. See above.
After giving the layer texture with the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder, I glued it to the card base.
Next, I used a second Ornate Layers Die to cut the vertical strip from Natural Touch Specialty Paper, and glued it on the right side of the card front.
I topped the strip with a fancy rectangle, cut from Sand & Sea Designer Paper, with a third, Ornate Layers Die.
Prior to gluing the fancy rectangle, I stamped the sentiment in Memento Black Ink. “Many Thanks” is from the Itty Bitty Greetings Stamp Set, which is retiring. You’ll find the stamp set in the Last Chance Products Sale by clicking on the box below.
Finally, the butterfly was made with a Brilliant Wings Die, cut from Natural Touch Specialty Paper. It was layered for thickness, and glued at the body, leaving the wings free.
I was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches.
