Hello Friends and Happy Friday! I hope you’ve had a great week! Thanks for stopping by to check out my new butterflies card featuring the new Small Butterflies combo from PinkFresh Studio! This is such a beautiful set! I can’t wait to try the butterflies again in different foil and ink combinations! Let’s jump right in, shall we?
To begin the project, I cut a panel of Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock and foiled the Small Butterflies using Spellbinders Champagne foil. Then I did some light ink blending on them with PinkFresh Studio inks, Sky Blue, Slumber, Blue Jay and Misty Coast, using the coordinating stencil set. Once the ink blending was done, I used the coordinating die to run them through the die cutting machine. I also foiled the Perfect Sentiments plate using the same Champagne foil and ran those through the machine using the coordinating die for those as well.
While die cutting, I went ahead and cut a frame using the Slim Stitched Scalloped Rectangles, and also did a little ink blending on that as well, using the same Sky Blue ink. I cut another panel of Neenah 110lb and pulled out the Diamond Motif stencil and lightly ink blended some Misty Coast ink on that. I put foam tape on the back of the frame and adhered it to the Diamond Motif panel. I also cut a couple pieces of the Leafy Branch to add to the panel as well.
I glued only the base of the stems of the Leafy Branch to the Motif panel and added the butterflies using foam tape for dimension. I adhered this to my card base, which is also Neenah 110lb. To finish up the project, I added my Miss You sentiment from the Perfect Sentiments set using a combination of glue and foam tape. And .. no project is complete without some bling, so I added some PinkFresh Studio Jewels
That does it for this project! I might actually be in love with these butterflies! So much so, that I might have to order the larger ones! I hope you enjoyed this project and I hope you’re inspired to get crafty too! Stay awesome sweet friend!
