Hello and welcome! Seeka here and today I’m sharing a card featuring a butterfly created with the Butterfly Basics die set.
I started by using a blending brush to blend a peach-colored ink onto a piece of white cardstock. I blended a rough circle and concentrated the color at the center.
Then I centered the solid butterfly die over the ink-blending and cut out a peachy butterfly. I cut the butterfly’s detail layer from white cardstock and then adhered the two pieces together, using just a bit of glue at the center of the butterfly and leaving the wings free to separate from each other. Then I cut the butterfly’s body from gray cardstock and adhered it at the center of the wings.
Next, I created the faux dip-dyed background using Post-it Tape, green dye inks in a light-to-medium range, and a blending brush. I tore a length of 2″-wide Post-it Tape down the middle, lengthwise, and then masked off a portion of a 4.25″ x 5.5″ panel of white cardstock. I blended a very light green ink over the exposed area of the panel, and then removed the mask. I positioned the other half of the strip of Post-it tape and repeated the process, using the next darker shade of green. I repeated two more times until I completed the background.
Next, I trimmed 3/8″ off the length and the width of the background and then I stamped the sentiment, from the Classic Sentimental Wreath stamp set, in black ink. To finish, I adhered the butterfly with glue dots and then used foam tape to adhere the card front to an A2-sized card base.
Thank you so much for visiting!
