I really went through a Butterfly phase last Spring and I think as we get closer to this Spring, I’m reaching for those butterflies again! I love the colors, simplicity, and cuteness of this card! It also uses up scraps! Bonus!!!!! I started with a Whisper White card base and then took stripes of cardstock that are 1″ wide in Coastal Cabana, Pistachio Pudding, Crisp Cantaloupe, and Strawberry Slush. I took each color and ran each through the Big Shot with a different embossing folder! I used my Chevron Folder, Perfect Polka Dot Folder, Fancy Fan Folder, and Arglye Folder! You can use any folders you have! Then I took my Bitty Butterfly Punch and punched the bottom of each strip making sure to keep the angle the same each time. I did it by lining up the edge of the paper with the corner of the punch!!!
Then you will want to stamp one of the small butterflies from the Papillon Potpourri Stamp Set in the coordinating colors and punch them out with the Bitty Butterfly Punch. Without using adhesive, I set the first butterfly down towards the bottom on the left side of my card base to make sure my spacing was good. I started with my longest piece (some of my scraps were smaller so I used those for the little ones.) I added Snail Adhesive to the strip and placed it real close to the edge of the white, right above the butterfly. Then I added adhesive to the next one and spaced it real close and up a bit from the first one. Remember that each strip is 1″ wide and your card front is 4-1/4″ wide so you only have 1/4″ to have in between!!! Keep moving until you have all 4 strips placed down. I didn’t make specific measurements on the length because I just used scraps and after placing them down I trimmed off the extra cardstock along the top. Then I added a piece of Stampin Dimensional to each of the little butterflies and added those to the bottom of the strips! My greeting was stamped from the Petite Pairs Stamp Set in Strawberry Slush. Also, I added a little Itty Bitty Punch Pack flower in Coastal Cabana with a Rhinestone in the middle! Lots of scraps used up with this adorable card! Colorful and perfect for Spring!!!
