My friend is a fan of butterflies, blue, purple and sparkle, so for her Birthday earlier this week, this card seemed appropriate.
My blue is Pool Party, one of their favourite Stampin’ Up! colours, with Highland Heather for the purple. All of the stamping is in Smoky Slate.
The butterflies are from the Butterfly Gala Stamp Set and cut out using the co-ordinating Butterfly Duet Punch. Using Stampin’ Blends in both Pool Party and Highland Heather as my colouring tools matches them with the cardstock.
There is also a touch of Wink of Stella on the wings for a touch of sparkle.
For the background, I used the ‘splat’ from the Forever Fern Stamp Set in both colours to break up the white space. I then chose a simple sentiment from the Blossoms in Bloom Stamp Set to stamp in the bottom corner.
A length of the fabulous new Metallic Mesh Ribbon from the Mini Catalogue makes a great feature. It adds even more sparkle to co-ordinate with the Wink of Stella wings.
The smaller butterflies are attached with Glue Dots, with the large butterfly glued to the layered circles. This circles section is then given extra definition by being stuck on with Dimensionals.
