Happy Tuesday!!! That means I have a fabulous technique to share with you today!!! Today I am sharing the Butterfly Thinlits with you from the Occasions Mini Catalog! It is super fabulous and elegant! Also, butterflies make me think of Spring so I’m all about them right now! 🙂 How amazing are these cards?
My mom asked me for some elegant, simple cards that she could use for occasions such as Baptism, 1st Communion, Confirmation, and Weddings! This is what I came up with and she loved them!!!!
I started with a Very Vanilla card base. Then I took a piece of Very Vanilla (4″ x 5-1/4″) and using my Oval Framelit I cut an oval out of the center. The size I used was the 4th one (middle one)! After cutting out the oval, I placed the piece of cardstock into the Fancy Fan Embossing Folder and ran that through the Big Shot. I adhered this piece to my card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. You know how I love those things and I really liked how it can dimension to the card. NOTE: I placed the embossed paper onto my card front with the embossed image down, so it doesn’t pop up on my card but is smooth. I just thought this made it smooth and elegant! Then I ran a piece of Very Vanilla through the Big Shot with my Butterfly Thinlits from the Occasions Mini Catalog! LOVE these! The best way to do it to layer your Clear Cutting Pad, Dryer Sheet, Cardstock, Wax Paper, Thinlit, and Clear Cutting Pad. The Dryer Sheet and Wax Paper make it super easy to pop it out of the die and so you don’t spend hours popping out each of those butterfly details!!! I adhered the Butterfly with Mini Glue Dots and stamped the greeting in Chocolate Chip from the Crazy About You Stamp Set which is also in the Occasions Mini Catalog! Perfect! I added some Pearls to one of them! Also, I created this one as well with the Bird Builder Punch!
Of course when I showed these to my Mom she loved them and wanted lots of them to have on hand! 🙂
Here is a Video Tutorial shows you how to make this card and showing you how to die cut using your Thinlits! I hope you enjoy it and if so be sure to give it a Thumbs Up!
