Supplies (all Stampin' Up!®):
Paper: Primrose Petals, Raspberry Ripple, Summer Starfruit, Gumball Green, Midnight Muse card stock; Print Poetry Designer Series Paper (DSP) stack
Accessories: Elegant Butterfly punch, Bitty Butterfly punch, pearls, rhinestones, Tombow Mono Multi liquid glue, Dimensionals, Glue Dots
These were really quick, easy and fun to make, and I really like how they look arranged on this Crumb Cake card stock. (This could almost be the front of a sweet all-occasion card.)
To make the card candy, I first punched two Elegant Butterfly shapes from each of five colors: Primrose Petals, Raspberry Ripple, Summer Starfruit, Gumball Green, Midnight Muse. These are Stampin' Up!'s 2012 - 2014 In Colors, and I chose them because they are the main colors in the Print Poetry DSP stack. I chose five prints from the DSP stack -- one to coordinate with each card stock color -- and punched two Bitty Butterfly shapes from each print. I gently folded the Bitty Butterfly shapes in the middle, placed a little liquid glue along the crease and adhered them to the Elegant Butterfly shapes, leaving the wings folded up just a bit. I added a strip of three pearls or rhinestones along the middle of each butterfly.
These butterflies really make me long for spring, but I have a feeling that's still a long way off. Thanks for stopping by!
