Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Basics

I used the Butterfly Basics stamp set from Stampin’ Up! to create my card for today.  This card is going to a friend that is going through some changes in her life.


Stampin' Up! Butterfly Basics Card-iology by Jari



My card design was inspired by Sketch and Stamp SB115.


I started by stamping the fern leaf pattern in Wild Wasabi ink to a panel of Farmers Market DSP.  I stamped the small butterfly images in Elegant Eggplant ink-one was stamped off first (notice it is a little lighter that the top butterfly.  I then stamped the post mark image in Elegant Eggplant.  Next, I stamped the larger butterfly also in Elegant Eggplant and fussy cut it with my Paper snips.  I need to say here how wonderful those snips are, too!  They do a beautiful job cutting the closest of areas! It was time to adhere the DSP to a panel of Wild Wasabi cardstock with multi-purpose Tombow glue.


Next, I stamped the sentiment onto a small rectangle of Whisper White card stock in Elegant Eggplant, then attached it to a piece of Elegant Eggplant cardstock that was just a smidgen larger.  I then decided where I wanted it to go before stamping the banner images on the DSP.  I used a stamp from the Perfect Pennants set for those in Elegant Eggplant. Next, I cut a strip of Wild Wasabi 1/2″ ribbon to go down the side, and attached it to the back first with a little Tombow glue, then added dimensionals to either side of the ribbon to hold it in place. Because I wanted the butterfly to not be flat on the page, I put a dot of glue on the underside and attached it to the corner of the sentiment rectangle.  I wanted the knot hole to show, so I added dimensionals to that rectangle and attached it beside the “hole” on the front of the card.  Those 2 layers were then attached to the card base which is Elegant Eggplant.

I stamped some more images from the set to the inside of the card on a panel of Whisper White cardstock and adhered it with Tombow glue.
