Breakin’ out the Butterflies

…and there are a LOT of butterflies to break out!  This card uses the stamp and framelit bundle that was SO hard to get earlier this year.  Thank goodness it’s easy as can be to order now!

Maui Stamper Butterfly Basics

  • Stamps:  Butterfly Basics
  • Color Palette:  Whisper White, Mint Macaron, Tip Top Taupe
  • Accessories:  Butterflies thinlets, All is Calm DSP (retired from Holiday 2014), Rhinestone jewels, Glue Dots

I grabbed the retired All is Calm DSP because it was close by, and found rather serendipitously that it was a very close (but not exact) match for Mint Macaron.  Life can be sweet that way!  There are beautiful Mint Macaron papers in my new 2015-2016 In Color paper stack, but when I made this card, that stack was not in my stash.

This is a very simple look to create.  The top Whisper White layer is 3 3/4″ x 5″ and the butterfly is carefully positioned using the magnetic platform to be cut out of the top 40%.  The top layer, sans butterfly, is stamped and then adhered to a DSP layer measuring 4″ x 5 1/4″, and that whole assembly is adhered to the card front (in this case, the GLORIOUS new THICK Whisper White).  Finally, a couple of Glue Dots put the butterfly back in place, with a gentle bend in the wings to provide additional dimension.  Easy and done!
