Hello Lovelies! You don't have to do much to get me to craft with butterflies so I was pretty tickled when I opened Simon Says Stamp's Mix and Match Butterflies Card Kit.

HIGHLIGHTS:

STAMPING

  • Trim the yellow cardstock to 4" x 5 1/2"

  • Use Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink to stamp the sentiment in the top right of the cardstock


DRY EMBOSSING

  • Use the Dibble Tile Embossing Folder to emboss the yellow cardstock. Both sides are pretty but I actually used the de-bosssed side for this card front

  • Pop up with foam tape


WET EMBOSSING

  • Stamp the butterfly wings on the top left of the set, the butterfly body and all the flowers on to Distress Watercolor paper

  • Heat emboss the images using the gold glitter powder


COLORING

  • Color the butterfly from the tips of the wings towards the center blending blue in green colors and filling in the dots and details on the wings with mixes of a coral pink and orange. Use a brownish-green for the butterfly body.

  • Use a mix of those same colors on the flowers

  • The colors are not that important, just use your watercolor marker of choice in these tones and have fun


DIE-CUTTING & ASSEMBLY

  • match the dies to the images and die-cut

  • Use the craft glue to attach the butterfly wings to the body

  • Attach an action wobbler underneath and adhere to the embossed yellow card front

  • adhere the flowers with craft glue and pop a few up with foam dots for dimension










 

This embossing folder captures such beautiful details!



I think you can see why I have a fondness for butterflies!



I love when I get sentiments that combine plain and fancy fonts.



Did I inspire a little butterfly magic in your craft space?



Thank you for fluttering by for a visit!
