Beautiful Butterflies

I love the simplicity and beauty of this card. I remember seeing something like it on one of the Stampin' Up! demonstrator boards, and had to CASE it and give it a try. It features the Vintage Vogue stamp set and Beautiful Wings Embosslit from the Occasions Mini.

Stampin' Up! Product Used

  • Vintage Vogue Stamp Set
  • Beautiful Wings Embosslits
  • Mellow Moss Classic Ink
  • Perfect Plum Stampin' Write Marker
  • Pale Plum Cardstock
  • Stampin' Dimensionals
  • SNAIL Adhesive
  • Word Window Punch
  • Scallop Trim Border Punch
  1. Start with a basic card in Whisper White.
  2. Then using the horizontal floral stamp and Mellow Moss ink, stamp the bottom of the card front.
  3. Then using the "vine" stamp, ink with Mellow Mess. Then using the Perfect Plum marker, color the flowers in the vine, then stamp on the lower, right corner. Repeat this process to create the vine up the right side of the card, and then again in the upper, left corner.
  4. Punch the fence using the Word Window Punch (5 pieces).
  5. Lay three of them down (vertically, side by side) and then stamp the floral horizontal stamp across the bottom of them in Mellow Moss.
  6. Three are the fence poles where I used the new Scallop Trim Border Punch to give the fence a decorative top, then adhere two horizontally. So first I adhered the horizontal pieces and placed with Stampin' Dimensionals. Then did the 3 poles and adhered them to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals as well.
  7. Using the Big Shot and Beautiful Wings Embosslits, create the beautiful butterflies with a 2-1/2 x 2-1/2 square of Pale Plum.
  8. Adhere the butterflies where desired using Stampin' Dimensionals.
  9. Stamp your greeting in Perfect Plum.
  10. You're done!
I will definitely be making more with different color combinations and for all occasions! I created some for Valentine's Day - see below.
