You’ll want to create lots of projects with the fabulous butterflies from the Floating & Fluttering Bundle from the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog. You can make your own Designer Series Paper with the large image stamp in the Floating & Fluttering stamp set that includes multiple butterflies and leaves or add just a few butterflies to a project by die cutting out the images with the Fluttering dies. The bold lines of the images make them easy to color whether you’re using Stampin’ Blends or adding ink with the two set stamp images & Classic Ink pads. I used the beautiful Floating & Fluttering Bundle to create this lovely card using the 2021-2023 In Colors. You can view the making of this card on my Facebook Live replay here or watch it on my YouTube channel below.
Start with a Polished Pink cs card base. Cut a Polished Pink cs panel, a Basic White cs panel, and two Basic Black cs strips. Dry emboss the Polished Pink cs panel with the Bark 3D embossing folder (keep in mind that this embossing folder does shorten the length of your panel) and glue it to the card base.
Using a Stampin’ Pierce Mat stamp the large butterflies/leaves image in Memento Black Ink on the Basic White cs panel. I showed during my Facebook Live that I usually start with a larger Basic White cs panel and then cut the stamped panel down after to the desired sized & cut the two strips for the inside & back of the card at the same time. Color the images with the In Color Stampin’ Blends. Use glue to add the Basic Black cs strips to the back of the stamped Basic White cs panel creating about an 1/8″ border. Glue the panel to the left side of the card front.
Stamp the sentiment from the Happy Thoughts stamp set in Memento Black ink on Basic White cs. Punch out the sentiment with the Everyday Label Punch. Use Stampin’ Seal to add Basic Black Baker’s Twine to the back of the label. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to the label to the card front overlapping the image & embossed panels.
Stamp two butterflies in Memento Black ink on Basic White cs, color with Stampin’ Blends, and fussy cut or die cut them out with the Fluttering dies. Add Wink of Stella to the butterflies for sparkle. Use your Bone Folder to gently curl the wings of a butterfly and use a Stampin’ Dimensional to add it to the card front above the sentiment label. Add Matte Black Dots to the sentiment label.
Don’t forget to add a Basic White cs inside panel to write your message. I stamped the sentiment from the Happy Thoughts stamp set in Memento Black ink and added a colored image strip on the inside and back of the card to pull the theme through.
I also added the second colored (fussy cut or die cut) butterfly to the back of the card.
I hope you enjoyed my Floating & Fluttering Bundle card. You can order the fabulous Floating & Fluttering Bundle, the Bark 3D embossing folder, the Everyday Label punch, and the 2021-2023 In Color products in my Online Store.
