Botanical Butterfly

Butterfly Friendship Card

Our crazy Utah weather has been teasing us with  intermitant spring sunshine that has plagued me with Spring Fever, and nothing says “Spring” like Stampin’ Up’s Botanical Butterfly paper. Pair the butterfly paper with the Well Said bundle to create this quick, simple elegant friendship card. I saw a similar card posted on Pinterest by Su Mour and fell in love with the simple elegance of this card.

Began with a Basic Black cardstock base, add the black and white butterfly paper, then  another Basic Black rectangle.  The stitched rectangle  framelit from the Rectangle Stitched Framelits was used to cut out the Whisper White then embossed it with the Tufted embossing folder. For the Basic Black floral I used the Well Written Thinlit set and I adhered the floral to the Whisper White with Multi Purpose Liquid Glue. I used the Layering Circles framelits to cut the scallop Basic Black and Butterfly Botanical circles then popped them up with dimensional’s. Using the Butterfly punch I punched the small orange and yellow butterfly from the Butterfly DSP, I ran a line of glue down the middle of the butterfly, waited a few minutes for it to dry then gently folded the wings up for dimension.

The sentiment is from the Well Said stamp set and I used another framelit from the Rectangle Framelit set to cut it out.

The Beautiful Layers thinlits have a cool envelope liner making it so simple to line your envelopes adding the finishing touch.
