Hi everyone and welcome, Eloise here and today is Day Four of the Blog Blitz and I’m so excited to be sharing my project with you today. Each day until the 6th of May, the designers for Birch Press Design will be sharing projects using the brand new release. There will also be a giveaway every day the Blog Blitz goes on, so make sure you read below to see how you can enter to win. For my project today, I’ll be using the Sparkler Butterfly A and D Dies along with the Thanks Sugar Script Dies to create a thank you card.
To begin my card today, I started off with cutting out three Sparkler Butterfly A Dies, and three Sparkler Butterfly D Dies from some watercolour cardstock. Once they were die cut out, I also ran through the Thanks Sugar Script Dies with some more watercolour paper as well.
To colour in my butterfly layers, I’ll be using my Mijello Misson Gold Watercolour palette and colouring each of my layers with two shades of the same colour. I coloured in a pink/red butterfly, a yellow/orange butterfly and a green butterfly. I did the A layer darker than the D layer, just for a little contrast. Once all my layers were coloured, I dried them with my heat tool. For my ‘Thanks‘ sentiment, I used a blue colour and water-coloured the bottom of the word and faded it up to white. I dried that also and set them off to the side.
Next, I took a piece of white cardstock and ran it through my Big Shot Machine with a Dotted Embossing Folder from We R Memory Keepers. Now that all my elements are ready, I can assemble my card. I used some foam squares to adhere the base of my butterflies to my card panel. I then used Multi Medium Matte adhesive to adhere my butterfly layers together. I set them off to the side to dry, then I used some foam tape on the back of the ‘Thanks‘ word and adhered it to a thin black strip of cardstock. I then used some detail scissors and cut v shapes at the end of each side. I added more foam tape to the back of my sentiment strip and adhered it to the centre of my middle butterfly. To finish off, I adhered my panel to a card base and that was my card completed.
Thanks so much for stopping by today, the video is linked down below for you all.
Now onto the giveaway details. The prize today is the Sparkler Butterfly A Die, like the one I used in my project pictured above. It works so well with all the layers, but even on it’s own. It’s super versatile and would be a great addition to your collection. The Blog Blitz is running from the 1st of May to the 6th of May. To be entered into this giveaway and all the others, make sure you leave a comment on the blog post. You have until Midnight US EST May 10 to comment and the winners will be announced on May 13. Good luck! Also, be sure to check by the Birch Press Design’s Instagram on May 7th. We will be having a Instagram Hop and there will be another giveaway so be sure to follow and hop along on that also.
Thanks again for stopping by, good luck and I’ll catch you all next time!
