Beautiful Spring Butterflies {Congratulations Card}

I love how this turned out so cheery and bright. The base is Chocolate Chip card stock, layered with Barely Banana.

The focal point of the card is the row of little butterflies mounted on color coordinated circles. I used the Beautiful Wings Embosslit and the Big Shot to make them in 4 colors: Regal Rose, Chocolate Chip, Barely Banana, and Kiwi Kiss. Whenever I use the Beautiful Wings Embosslit, I save all the extra butterflies in a little ziploc baggie and when I need them, they’re ready to go.

I mounted each tiny butterfly on Whisper White punched out with the 1/2″ Circle Punch. Then, I layered each white circle on the corresponding color, punched out with the 3/4″ Circle Punch. Those are adhered to the base with Stampin Dimensionals.

As for the sentiment, I stamped “congratulations” from Well Scripted in Chocolate Chip ink below the butterflies. I added a strip of Chocolate Chip card stock that I punched with the Scallop Trim Border Punch and adhered it behind the Whisper White layer.  Around the edges of the Whisper White, I paper pierced to give it definition. Finally, the Regal Rose 5/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon was tied around the White layer and adhered to the base with Stampin Dimensionals.

Shades of Spring Butterfly Card

This card sketch is perfect for showcasing designer series paper. The base is Chocolate Chip card stock, layered with Regal Rose. On top of that, I used Shades of Spring DSP in this awesome  print. I just love these flowers and colors! They also come in purples and greens too.

The butterflies were made using the Beautiful Wings Embosslit and the Big Shot in Regal Rose, Chocolate Chip and Barely Banana card stock. I layered them with Mini Glue Dots and attached them to a piece of Whisper White matted on Barely Banana and Chocolate chip. Around the 4 corners of the Whisper White, I stamped the filigree stamp from Chic Boutique in Chocolate chip ink.

To finish off the card, I tied Regal Rose 5/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon around the card in a knot. With my super Craft & Paper Scissors (which are not going to be used for paper ever!) I snipped the edges of the ribbon into points. They are so sharp and cut ribbon perfectly.

There is no sentiment on this card and honestly I couldn’t find a place to put one. A tiny tag hanging off the ribbon knot would probably be the best way to add a sentiment, but for now, I’m leaving it blank.

Happiness Always Beautiful Wings Butterfly Card

Remember Cottage Wall DSP? I forgot how much I liked it until I pulled it out last night and made this card. I also used another favorite thing of mine–the Beautiful Wings Embosslit.

The card base is Rich Razzleberry Textured card stock, cut to 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″, folded in half for a 4 1/4″ square card. I layered Cottage Wall DSP on Whisper White card stock and wrapped a piece of Rich Razzleberry Polka Dot Grosgrain Ribbon around the front.

Next, I used the Beautiful Wings Embosslit and the Big Shot to die cut these cute little butterflies in Rich Razzleberry and Whisper White card stock. I layered them with Mini Glue Dots and attached them to the card. This pattern of DSP actually matches the smallest butterfly from the Sizzlet perfectly!

To finish off the card, I stamped the sentiment from Whimsical Words (Sale-a-Bration set free with $50 purchase) in Old Olive ink on Whisper White card stock. Then, I punched that out with the Large Oval Punch and layered it onto Rich Razzleberry punched out with the Scalloped Oval Punch. That’s attached to the card base with Stampin Dimensionals.
