Tuesday Tutorial - Layered Butterflies

Hi Everybody,

For today's card I am using the Layered Butterflies from my own "Christina Collection" that is available from Craft Stash.  I have used Teal and Pink with a White base for my design and the ribbon is from my bits & bobs
Supplies Used:
  • Complete Card & Box dies set
  • Layered Butterflies Dies
  • Layered Butterflies Stamps
  • Layered Butterflies Stencils
  • Fancy Flourish Stencil
  • Cosmic Shimmer dries clear Glue
  • Foam sheets
  • Distress Oxide Inks - Peacock Feathers & Worn Lipstick
  • Pink ribbon
  • 10mm roses from Wild Orchid Crafts 
Create a top folded base in white by folding the A4 card in half and placing the three cutting edged die with the non cutting edge over the open ends and die cut.
Score one of them about half an inch down and add glue to this narrow strip.
Adhere the two pieces together to create the base
Cut another mat in white using the stitched edge die and this is the layer we are adding the design too
Hand cut another mat in teal to fit between these two layers
On the white mat randomly stencil the tiny butterflies in Peacock Feathers
Lightly Stencil the Fancy Flourish to one side
Using the largest butterfly stamp and the two inks add the pattern over the card leaving some to overhang. Add to the teal mat once the ink is dry and wrap these layers with pink ribbon
Cut in Teal and Pink the other elements that you need and layer up the butterflies gluing along the body line only to allow the wings to be free.
I decided to leave out the two small tags and I cut two of the larger labels in White and Teal 
I cut the Teal one in half and created a shadow around the sentiment
The butterflies are dressed with tiny 10mm pink roses and they are then glittered for extra sparkle
This could be for any occasion by simply changing the sentiment

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  10. Hi Christina
    Pretty card and just love the way you marry different colours together. I wouldn't have thought of putting teal with pink - I tend to mix different shades of the same colour because I'm not very good at mixing colours. Thanks for showing us
    Best wishes
