؞ Double Butterfly Card ؞

Morning Everyone,

Today I am showcasing this beautiful blue butterfly card :)

Once again I have used a framelits die to stencil my card front. I think the effect that you get from doing this is so striking.

The die I have used for this card is from the Flourish Thinlits Dies from Stampin' Up.

(Link to buy this product will be down below)

As you can see from the picture of the die set. It is a very intricate and pretty set. Today's card used the large cluster of leaves and flowers. (Bottom right hand corner of the photo)

I have used this set so many times :) It is perfect for adding just that little piece of 3D effect or an extra touch of something to a card.

Here is how I made today's card.... :)


Card base - Whisper White card stock measuring 10 x 6 inches (25 x 15 cms)

Score the card base @ 5 inches (12 1/2 cms)

Also needed is the following card stock -

Dapper Denim card stock @ 4 3/4 x 5 3/4 inches (12 x 14 1/2 cms)

Pear Pizzazz card stock @ 4 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches (11 1/2 x 14 cms)

Whisper White card stock @ 4 1/4 x 5 1/4 inches (11 x 13 1/2 cms)

Cut the flourish framelits die out of a piece of scrap card stock.

You will also need to cut the two butterfly shapes out. The intricate butterfly I used today is from the Butterflies Thinlits Dies set from Stampin' Up.

This card uses the smaller detailed butterfly. 

You will need to also cut this out of a scrap piece of card stock.

To create the other butterfly for this card. Draw around the same die you are using and fussy cut this out.

Place the die cut in the top left corner. 

Using a Tempting Turquoise ink pad, hold your stencil piece down; making sure not to move it. 

Dab ink over the stencil with a sponge or dauber.

Extend out from the corner into the middle of the card. Aim for an ombre type of effect.

Repeat the above step in the bottom right hand corner. Again, extending to the middle point of the card front.

Now using an Island Indigo ink pad. Ink the edges of your card front and around the outside of your stenciled pattern. To give depth to the corners.

Set the card front to one side.

With the butterfly pieces. Lay the intricate piece over the solid butterfly.

Stamp over them with the Tempting Turquoise and Island Indigo ink pads. Again use the sponges/daubers.

(I also added in some more colour using one of the upcoming new colours Lemon Lime Twist. This colour will be available to order for customers from June 1st)

Once finished, you will find that when you lift the top butterfly piece off. It would of left details on the solid butterfly. 

This way, you can do two butterflies at once :)

Now time to build the card....

Using tear and tape attach the piece of Dapper Denim card stock on to the card base. Followed by the piece of Pear Pizzazz card stock on top.

With dimensionals, attach the card front piece to the card base.

Adhere the solid butterfly to the card front using a dimensional and the intricate butterfly with a fine tip glue pen.

Add your chosen sentiment and Voila!

This card can be done in many different ways to achieve lots of different looks. So have fun with it :)
