Happy Friday! This cheerful Any Occasion card was created using the Best Butterflies Bundle (stamps and dies), the Hive 3D Embossing Folder and the Dandy Designs 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper. You can earn the Hive 3D Embossing Folder and the Dandy Designs Designer Series Paper for free during Sale-a-bration with a qualifying order(s).
I started off by embossing a white panel using the Hive 3D Embossing Folder. A length of Glittered Organdy Ribbon was wrapped around the bottom of the panel and the ends were secured to the back of the card using small pieces of Tear & Tape. The embossed panel was then adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Using the Best Butterflies Stamp Set, I stamped a sentiment onto a white piece of cardstock measuring 3-1/4″ x 3/4″ using Fresh Freesia ink and this sentiment label was adhered to the upper left of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Four (4) butterflies were die cut using the small butterfly die from the Build a Butterfly Dies set. I selected three different patterns from the Dandy Designs Designer Series Paper pack for die cutting – one pattern in Balmy Blue, one in Fresh Freesia and one in Coastal Cabana…so pretty! I brushed the die cut butterflies with Wink of Stella to give them a little sparkle. Three of the butterflies were adhered to the card front diagonally from the upper left corner to the lower right corner. The butterfly on the left slightly overlaps the sentiment label and the butterfly on the right sits on top of the ribbon strip.
A small bow was tied using the Glittered Organdy Ribbon and adhered on top of the ribbon strip using a Mini Glue Dot.
The fourth die cut butterfly was adhered to the inside panel. This panel was then matted to a piece of Fresh Freesia cardstock and this unit was adhered to the inside of the card.
To finish the card I adhered several Opal Rounds to the card front. A piece of coordinating Dandy Designs Designer Series Paper was adhered to the envelope flap, and I trimmed the excess paper away from the flap.
I hope you enjoyed my card for today! Apologies for the photos…it is difficult to photograph sparkle and white…and I’m not a professional photographer! Suffice to say this is a cheerful card that will bring a smile to the recipient’s face!
