This months card class is all about Butterflies and we had lots of fun making a set of 4 cards using the Butterfly Gala Stamp Set and coordinating Butterfly Duet Punch which has proved so popular they sold out in under 2 months WOW! I loved these cards when I put them together, a few of my ladies own the set and we had a great class!
The first card that I am showing you today is the Melon Mambo theme card, which is my personal favourite from the set...
Starting with a standard C6 cardbase Measuring 10.5cm x 30cm and folded in half. I have used Thick Whisper White Cardstock and stamped the butterfly image across the card front in Melon Manbo. I have then cut a circle out of the card front using the 2.5” Circle Punch.
For the sentiment, I have cut a strip of Whisper White Cardstock and attached across the front of the card. Onto Basic Black Cardstock I have stamped the sentiment in Versamark and Heat embossed using White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and a Heat Tool. I have cut the words into tiles individually and attached to the strip.
Inside, I have layered together 3 punched Shapes using the 2.5” Circle Punch, Starburst Punch and 2” Circle Punch. I have attached these to the cardbase so that they sit inside the circle that I have punched out of the cardfront when closed, CLEVER!
For the edging I have used the bottom two wings of the small butterfly infill stamp to stamp off the edge of each vertical edge and around the Whisper White circle that I have punched out. The butterfly on the circle is the same image as the one I have stamped on the card front however I have coloured parts of it in using a Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker. This has been punched out and attached to the card just with the body so that the wings move.
To finish, I have added a few Melon Mambo coloured Glitter Enamel Dot on the card front and inside.
To finish this lovely bright card of course I have stamped the envelope so that it matches! This is a lovely little addition to your handmade cards and it’s nice to receive an envelope where you know the card inside is extra special
