Butterfly Wings Birthday Card by Secrets To Stamping

Cardz 4 Galz has a new challenge starting today – “Things with Wings.” This is one of my favorites because I love adding an image of something living to cards. Since I already had some butterflies that were already stamped and cut from the Butterfly Brilliance bundle, this card came together very quickly.

Once you finish here, I hope you visit our Cardz 4 Galz Design Team gallery for some great inspiration and play along!

My secrets to making this project

  • Firstly, this card is 6″ square, using White 6″ x 12″ cardstock and scored at 6.”
  • After that, I covered the front panel with the Old Olive DSP from Beauty of the Earth paper pack. Then, finding a piece of white cardstock that was already embossed in the Brick & Mortar embossing folder, I lightly sponged it with Balmy Blue ink to bring out the dimension before placing it onto the card base.

Now, the FUN Part!

  • Firstly, I chose the butterflies I wanted to use from my stash and began coloring them (colors listed below).
  • Then, I stamped the sentiment with Old Olive ink and cropped it out with the Ornate Layers die.
  • Before adding the sentiment to the card, I laid a loose bow with adhesive to the card base. Then, I popped the sentiment over the middle of the ribbon.
  • Finally, I colored the Faceted Gems with Stampin’ Blends ink and added them to the butterflies.

I’m submitting this card to the following challenges:
