Stampin’ Up!® Congratulations Gilded Butterfly Bijou DSP Card

Welcome and Thank you for visiting Christy’s Stamping Spot! I’m Christy and I’m an Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator in Arizona, USA. I’m excited to be taking part in this special Bruno and Kylie Bertucci’s Demonstrator Training Program Butterfly Bouquet Blog Hop with this fabulous group of Demonstrators from around the world!

Card Measurements, Supply List, and printable PDF tutorial for this project are found at the bottom of this blog post.

I love the Butterfly Bouquet Collection that is available starting March 2nd. The fabulous Butterfly Brilliance bundle is a sneak peek from the upcoming 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. The gorgeous Butterfly Bijou 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper and the Natural Touch Specialty Paper are an exclusive offering that is only available while supplies last.  I have a lovely Congratulations card using the gorgeous Butterfly Bijou DSP, Many Messages bundle, and the Gilded Leafing embellishment to share. You can find the measurements, supply list, and the PDF for this card at the bottom of this post.

Butterfly Bijou 6″x 6″ Designer Series Paper
Brilliant Wings Dies
The Brilliant Wings Dies cut out the butterflies from the Butterfly Bijou DSP in one go.

Start with a Calypso Coral cs card base. Cut a Poppy Parade cs panel and a Butterfly Bijou DSP panel. Dry emboss the Poppy Parade cs panel with the Subtle 3D embossing folder. Use Versamark ink on the edges of the Butterfly Bijou DSP to apply the Heat & Stick Powder, melt the powder with the Heat Tool, then apply the Gilded Leafing to the panel’s edges using a Stamping Sponge to remove the excess.

You can check out my YouTube Video on using Gilded Leafing here or my blog post here.

Glue the gilded DSP panel to the embossed Poppy Parade cs panel and then wrap them with a piece of the Fine Art Ribbon using Stampin’ Seal to secure the ends on the back of the panel. Glue the wrapped panels to the card front.

Die cut the butterflies from the Butterfly Bijou DSP with the Brilliant Wings dies. Use Versamark ink on the edges of the Butterflies to apply the Heat & Stick Powder, melt the powder with the Heat Tool, then apply the Gilded Leafing to the butterflies’ edges using a Stamping Sponge to remove the excess. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to add gilded butterfly to the left side of the card front overlapping the wrapped ribbon.

Stamp the Many Messages stamp using the Stamparatus in Memento Black ink on Basic White cs and then die cut out the sentiments with the Message Dies.

Find out more about using the awesome Many Messages bundle here.

Adhere the Congratulation sentiment with Stampin’ Dimensionals and glue dots across the DSP panel overlapping the butterfly & wrapped ribbon. Add Gilded Gems to the butterfly and the card front.

Don’t forget to add a Basic White cs inside panel to write your message. I stamped the sentiment from the Peaceful Moments stamp set in Memento Black ink, added a strip of DSP, and a glided butterfly to the inside and back of the card to pull the theme through.

I hope you enjoyed my Congratulations Gilded Butterfly Bijou DSP card. You can order the Many Messages bundle, Peaceful Moments, and Gilded Leafing embellishment in my Online Store and order the Butterfly Bijou DSP, the Brilliant Wings Dies, and all the Butterfly Bouquet products starting March 2nd.
