Hello Crafty Friends! Thanks for stopping by! I’m back today featuring the new Graceful Butterfly set from Simon’s latest release, Let’s Chill. What an awesome release this is! Have you checked it out yet? I’d love to know your favorites! Let’s go through the details of this project.
I love white on white compositions with a hint of color, so that’s the direction that I went with this one. I began by using the SSS Graceful Butterfly embossing folder to emboss a panel of Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock. Before embossing, I did spritz my panel of cardstock with some water just to loosen the fibers of the paper.
Once embossed, I used the coordinating die to trim the butterflies and bodies. I did however, only use one of the butterflies for this project and saved the others for future projects. While die cutting, I used the same die to trim the butterfly from various cardstocks, adhering the center of those together in rainbow order using liquid glue. Once that was done, I spritzed the butterfly with a sheer shimmer spray. Unfortunately, that doesn’t show up in the pictures.
Now on to the background. I used the SSS Stitched Whirl Background to cut a panel of Neenah 110 and trimmed it down just a bit further because I wanted to mount it onto a black panel, as I always do. I used a black Copic Multiliner pen to enhance some of the “whirls” on the panel before gluing the butterfly.
For the sentiment, I used the SSS Silhouette Sentiments set and stamped the sentiment on a scrap of black cardstock using VersaMark Ink and embossed it using SSS Detail White Embossing Powder. I used the coordinating die to trim it out, cutting three additional times as well to adhere all of those together. To assemble the card, I glued the butterfly and the sentiment directly to the panel and adhered the panel to a black panel using foam tape for dimension. I also added some iridescent confetti to finish up.
That does it for this card. I hope you enjoyed it, and I hope it inspires you to get crafty as well. I hope you’ll stop by and take a look at the entire Let’s Chill release! You won’t be disappointed! Thanks again for stopping by! Have a wonderful day and don’t forget to stay awesome!
