Hi everyone! It is Verity here again from Pretty Little Button, so good to be back up on the blog again. Do you want to know something? I learnt something new with this card! When it came to writing the post, I wasn't sure what to title it. As I had quite a few butterflies on the front, I wondered what a group of butterflies is called, and it turns out they are a Kaleidoscope. Now some of you may already have known that, but I didn't and I love the term! Well, anyway enough of that, that wasn't what you came here for! So read on and find out how this Kaleidoscope of Butterflies came together.
Kaleidoscope of Butterflies Card details:
This card is very easy to make and comes together in no time. To start of I embossed a white card panel that was 1/4" smaller than my card base. I used the Vintage tapestry embossing folder for this card, and doesn't it pair well with the butterfly theme.
After this I used two blue due inks to stamp a couple of the butterflies onto punchbag card stock. This colour combination gives a great vintage look to it.
Using a scoring pen (or a dull knife will do), I scored two lines on each butterfly - one other side of the body. Doing so, meant I could get depth and dimension when adhering to the card. I placed one foam square under each wing, to make it look like they were flying off the card.
I stamped two sentiments in matching colour, one from the same stamp sentiment. To finish the card off, I foam amounted the finished panel to the card base and added a few Nuvo drops for embellishments.
