I am loving this butterfly cut out look! It’s so elegant and amazing! That bling just makes it so much more fabulous as well! 🙂
I started with a Blackberry Bliss card base measuring 4-1/4″ x 11″! Then I took a piece of Whisper White (4″ x 5-1/4″) and die cut out the butterfly using the Butterflies Thinlits. I did my diagonal because butterflies are always on the move and I knew I wouldn’t get it perfectly centered! TIP: Save the white butterfly that you die cut out for another project that I’ll be posting on Tuesday! Now you will run the piece of cardstock with the die cut butterfly through the Big Shot in the Fluttering Embossing Folder. Now you have your base. You will want to adhere your piece of cardstock to the back of this piece covering the Butterfly hole. I used Hello Honey (2-1/2″ x 3-1/2″) but you can pick any color or let the Blackberry Bliss shine through and then do a Hello Honey butterfly. It is all up to you! Once you have your colored cardstock on the back, you can adhere it to your card base! Then I die cut a Blackberry Bliss butterfly with the Butterflies Thinlit and placed it right in the butterfly spot on the card. I only placed Mini Glue Dots down the center of the butterfly so the wings could pop up! Then I added a string of Rhinestones but I did Pearls on another one and that looked fabulous too! For the greeting, I took a piece of Hello Honey measuring 4″ x 1-3/4″ and stamped the greeting from the Crazy About You Stamp Set in Blackberry Bliss! Then I added it to my card front and tied some Whisper White Satin Stitched Ribbon around the card front between the greetings. When I was creating this card, I thought it was just stunning and then I added the greeting and I wasn’t as impressed. I didn’t really know what it was. At the stamp class where everyone made this card, they all loved it but mixed up the greetings. Some said “You Amaze Me. Happy Graduation.” and others said “Happy Birthday. You Amaze Me.” I loved how it turned out. I think I just don’t like the same greeting twice like I did on my card. Either way, I think it is stunning and you could do orange and yellow or black and orange or just about any color combination you wish! Love it!
