This week’s Global Design Project is a sketch, with a very interesting formation. When imagining how I would recreate it, I thought of using a small, rectangle from the Watercolor Shapes Stamp Set.

Butterfly Shapes


Isn’t this an interesting sketch? You should try your hand at creating a card, and hang it in our gallery.


I stamped the Watercolor Shapes rectangle six times, using Pool Party Ink, on Basic White Cardstock, 4″ X 5 1/4″. 


Next, I used the second largest Stitched Rectangles Die for cutting. The dotted border was created with Pattern Party Designer Paper, cut with the largest Stitched Rectangles Die. Then, the layers were glued together on a Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 51/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.


Prior to attaching the top layer, I placed a piece of Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon across the front, and taped it to the back.

To add some flair, I used a Brilliant Wings Die to cut a butterfly from Pattern Party Designer Paper in a colorful stripe, and glued its body on the card front.


The sentiment, “Thanks so much!,” is from the Sweet As A Peach Stamp Set. It was stamped in Just Jade Ink, cut with the smallest Stitched Rectangles Die, and attached with Dimensionals.

For a touch of sparkle, I added my new favorite, Artistry Blooms Sequins, to the butterfly’s body. Yes, these are the wonderful, self-adhesive sequins that are my host code gift for the month of June. You can read the details below.
