Poppies and butterflies came together for today’s friendship card. I always like bright colors combined with black & white.
One of Stampin’ Up’s brightest colors is Magenta Madness, and that’s what I chose for the card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.
Next, I stamped a row of poppies on Basic White Cardstock (5 1/4″ X 4″) using a Painted Poppies stamp and Memento Black Ink. The Stamparatus came in handy to insure the row was even, and dark enough.
While I was using the Stamparatus, I stamped the sentiment from the Welcoming Window Stamp Set, and used an Ornate Layers Die for cutting. Then, I cut a piece of True Love Designer Paper 1/8″ larger to give it a 1/16″ border. The row of poppies, and length of the sentiment, makes it feel like there’s a path, doesn’t it?
Now for the three, bright butterflies! This is the smallest of the Brilliant Wings butterflies that has a matching “frame.” It’s the one in the top, right corner. I placed a small piece of designer paper beneath the one butterfly, because I didn’t need to cut out all the butterflies for this project.
Two designer papers were used for cutting the butterflies: 2020-2022 In Color 6X6″ in Magenta Madness, and Fine Art Floral Designer Paper in Pumpkin Pie and Flirty Flamingo. I glued the butterflies together, just at the body, and attached them with Dimensionals. You can see the designer papers in my Product List below.
I was inspired by Fusion.
