Hello! It's a beautiful day to share a whimsical butterfly card with you. I love the Poppystamps Stained Glass Butterfly collage and the Large and Small Stained Glass Butterfly and Background. They can be used together or individually.
I chose a soft watercolor background of blue, green and purple swooshes to die cut the Stained Glass Butterfly collage from.
Next I die cut the Large and Small Stained Glass Butterfly and Background dies from heavy vellum. I glued the wings and antennae over the two butterflies with a glue dot adhering only the center. I also glued a small antenna on the butterfly without wings.
A closeup view showing the dimension created with the wing layers. The vellum gives the butterflies a fluid, dreamy feel.
I chose the "Best Wishes" sentiment from the Modest Greetings 1 Hot Foil Plate and Die. I rolled the plate through the die machine for a letterpress look. Then I mounted the sentiment on a thin frame of the watercolor paper and mounted it again on white cardstock.
I glued two tiny butterflies from the Stained Glass Butterfly collage on the background. Finally I placed Autumn Fairy Jewels around the image for extra sparkle.
I love how this card turned out. It can be used for many occasions. I can't wait to try more washes of color. Until next post, have a fantastic day!
