Today's card is adapted from a card that my Upline created, Dawn Griffin. This card is a 5" square card. Remember that you'll need a larger size envelope to mail these and you may need to add a bit extra in postage because it's not a traditional size.
To make this card like mine, you'll need the following supplies. Remember, if you need any of these supplies, just click on the name of the item and it will take you directly to my shop.
Basic Black card stockTempting Turquoise card stock
Beautiful Wings embosslit
Scallop Trim border punch
Basic Jewels Pearls
White gel pen
Card base is 5" square, so card stock needs to be cut 5" x 10".
Basic Black - 4 3/4" square
Tempting Turquoise - 4 1/2" square
Basic Black strip - 1 1/2" x 4 1/2"
Using the Scalloped trim border punch, punch along the bottom of the Basic Black Strip.
Take the gel pen and make little dots on the strip. I've found that it's better to do this now than to wait until after you place the butterflies.
Use the Beautiful Wings embosslit to create butterflies.
Put dots on the butterflies that have the raised dots.
Place the dot butterflies on top of the largest butterfly with glue dots.
Arrange the large butterflies along the Basic Black strip and attach using dimensionals. I popped the center butterfly up on 2 dimensionals for a little something different.
Arrange 3 of the same smaller butterflies in the upper right hand corner and attach with glue dots.
Add pearls to butterflies.
*If desired, stamp a sentiment in the upper left hand corner.
