Hello and welcome back, everyone! I have a large butterfly project for you today using our Monarch Butterfly Pop Up dies, Nesting Peonies Stamp Set and Marvelous cling background stamp.
Be sure to subscribe to our YouTube Channel for more inspiration! I update our channel on a weekly basis!
I started by creating my butterfly. For this project, I am not creating the pop up element inside my card. Instead, I’ll be using the detailed butterfly on the face of my card. I die cut the detailed butterfly onto some black cardstock. I also die cut the solid wing dies onto some of my homemade pink holographic cardstock using adhesive paper.
Next I assembled my butterfly by adhering the detailed wing to the solid pink holographic wing. Then I assembled both wings together by sliding the two body parts together. Next I glued down all the body portion flaps down and cut off the tabs.
Next, I white heat embossed our Marvelous Print Background stamp onto watercolor paper (5.5×5.5 inch) and created an Orchid and Indigo Color Burst watercolor wash. Once that panel was dried, I mounted it onto a white square panel that was slightly smaller than 6×6 inches. This matted panel was then adhered onto a 6x6inch top folding gray cardbase.
Next I white heat embossed our Nesting Peonies clusters twice onto watercolor paper and did some loose watercoloring using Color Bursts (Orchid, Sap Green, Pthalo Green, Terre Vert, Burnt Umber). Once my clusters were dried, I die cut them using their coordinating dies.
Next I cut my clusters in two and three sections which I then tucked and adhered behind my butterfly’s wings. Lastly, I stamped my sentiment (from our Nesting Peonies set) onto a white sentiment strip using our Noir Dye Ink. This strip was then mounted onto a black strip. The mounted sentiment strip was then adhered to the top portion of my card. I made sure to lightly bend/fold up my butterfly wings and peony clusters off the base to give the project some extra dimension.
That is all from me today! Thanks for stopping by!
