Hello, friends! I’m so happy to be here today to share this dimensional butterfly card I made with Birch Press Designs’s Lovely Butterflies stamp set. This set is perfect if you’re a butterfly lover like me!

I started this card with a panel of dark blue cardstock. I used white pigment ink to blend a halo in the center of the card where my butterfly would be. I then embossed my sentiment from the Lovely Butterflies set with white embossing powder and added white splatters to give the card a night sky look.

I always keep my leftover negative die cuts from my Birch Press dies, so I chose some foliage and stars from the Avalon Layer A die. I colored the pieces with alcohol markers and accented them with layers of gouache on top.

For my butterfly, I stamped the image on white 110# cardstock. I then used gouache paint to paint the butterfly’s wings. I decided I wanted to make the butterfly look like it is flying, so I stamped the image once again and colored it with markers matching the gouache paints I had selected (this was a time-saver over painting a second butterfly).

To assemble my card, I adhered the marker-colored butterfly and my foliage onto my card base. I then folded my painted butterfly up the middle and adhered it to the bottom butterfly along the crease. This creates such a beautiful effect of the butterfly’s wings rising up from the card.

I hope you enjoyed this project! Links to the products I used are below. Thank you for stopping by today, and I’ll see you again soon with another card project!
