🙒 Butterfly Basics Birthday Card 🙓

Hello Everyone!

Today I will be doing another small stash themed card. These types of tutorials I have been doing have become quite popular with some of you and I have had a few people asking me if I could do some more :)

The card I am showing you today, was made using only one stamp set, two colours of ink pads and two colours of card stock.

I think the card has turned out really nicely and it has shown me that when you do a card with more than one layer.

You don't necessarily need to have lots of different layers of card stock. Just inking the edges of each piece will separate them enough :)

The one stamp set I have used today is the Butterfly Basics stamp set from Stampin' Up. 

Butterfly Basics Wood-Mount Stamp Set

I have been wanting this stamp set for so long and now I am so happy to finally be able to use it. It has also already given me lots of ideas on how it could be used with different styles of cards.


Card base -

Smoky Slate card stock - 11 3/4 x 5 7/8 inches (30 x 15 cms)

Score @ 5 7/8 inches (15 cms)

Other card stock needed -

Whisper White card stock - 4 pieces

1 piece @ 5 3/4 x 5 3/4 inches (14 1/2 x 14 1/2 cms)

1 piece @ 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches (14 x 14 cms)

1 piece @ 3 1/4 x 1 1/4 inches (8 1/2 x 3 1/2 cms)

1 piece @ 2 x 5 inches (5 x 13 cms)

Ink Pads -

Smoky Slate 

Wisteria Wonder

The background piece of the card front is made using the piece of Whisper White card stock that measures 5 1/2 inch square (14 cms)

With this piece of card stock and using a dauber/sponge. Ink the edges with the Wisteria Wonder in pad.

When doing the corners of the card stock, bring the colour more inwards than you do along the edges.

The honeycomb stamp from the set was stamped with the Smoky Slate ink pad, using the stamp off and on technique. 

Stamp the honeycomb twice in a L shape in both the bottom left hand corner and the top right hand corner.

The long fern stamp was stamped three times into the centre of the card stock. I only covered the stamp with ink one time and then stamped out the three images consecutively. This gave me the three different shades.

Also the fern stamp has been stamped in three of the corners (see photo) using the Wisteria Wonder ink pad.

The postage stamp image was stamped as well with the Wisteria Wonder ink in the bottom right hand corner and near the bottom of the ferns in the centre of the card.

Finally for the card front piece. The small text butterfly stamp was used with the Smoky Slate ink pad.

Stamp the butterfly near to where you stamped the postage stamps.

On the piece of Whisper White card stock that measures 2 x 5 inches (5 x 13 cms) 

Stamp the large floral stamp with the Smoky Slate ink pad.

To add a little extra to this flower, I added a diamante into the flowers centre.

Ink the edges of the card stock with the Smoky Slate ink pad but also add a little of the Wisteria Wonder ink to the corners.

On the smallest piece of card stock, stamp your sentiment.

Ink the edges of the sentiment piece with the Wisteria Wonder ink pad and use the Smoky Slate ink just in the corners. (I used the excess that was left on my dauber for this piece)

Now it is time to build the card :)

With dimensional's, attach the following pieces -

Place your floral piece on the right hand side of your card front.

For the sentiment piece, but I doubled up the dimensional's on the left hand side so that it sat flush whilst overlapping the floral image piece.

To attach your card front to the remaining piece of Whisper White card stock.

You can then attach the card front piece onto the card base using tear and tape.

And Voila!! The card is complete :)

I really enjoyed making today's card and I just love creating all of the different shades that can be made from just one colour. 

As always, everything I have used will be listed and linked below.

I hope you all have a lovely day and I will see you all tomorrow.

Take care & Always sparkle
