Just Fluttering By


Hi Crafty Friends,

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. Being a brand new month it's time to introduce a new challenge hostess, which this time around is ME!

Butterflies seem to be very popular right now, many companies have released products featuring them this year. Create a card that features one or more butterflies.

For my card today I pulled out my Spellbinders Butterfly Creator die set designed by Bibi Cameron. As you can see I created an easel card.

I created the easel portion of the card using white cardstock, I folded the card in half and then lined up the largest butterfly die so that the top part of the butterfly was slightly above the score line. I then folded the top butterfly in half to create the base of the easel card.

Next I die cut the large butterfly three more times, once from white cardstock and twice from Rainbow Mirri Cardstock. I adhered one of the mirri butterfly panels over the white one and adhered this to the folded butterfly of the easel. I cut a sliver of card off the top of the other mirri butterfly and adhered this to the butterfly easel base.

Using the smaller of the butterflies, I die cut two pieces of patterned paper using Craft Consortium's Ink Drops - Vivid patterned paper. I also die cut two more white small butterflies adhering the patterned paper to the white butterfly before adhering both to the easel card.

I die cut the butterfly body form Rainbow Mirri card and added it to the top butterfly.

I recently got a stamp set that contained two butterfly themed sentiments, so I stamped them onto white cardstock using pink ink and then adhered them to the card. Both sentiments are layered using rainbow mirri cardstock. I adhered the birthday one using foam tape to use as a stop for the easel card.

I decorated the card with flowers and leaves using dies from the Butterfly Creator die set.

To finish off the card I added a few pink enamel dots randomly around the flowers on the card.

Here is a look at the base of my easel card, there is space above the sentiment to hand write a personal greeting.

Here is a look at my card when it is closed ready to be placed in an envelope.
