Butterflies for the holidays? What could be more elegant! I really like the finished results and hope you do, too. I'm digging the traditional holiday look of Garden Green and Real Red–just like I used for yesterday's card.
STAMPIN' PRETTY TIPS:
- Let's go straight to the butterfly–my favorite part of this card. I cut the Vellum butterfly using my Big Shot and Beautiful Butterflies Bigz Die (a Stampin' Up! Exclusive).
- I inked the Fine Flourish stamp in VersaMark and stamped it on the butterfly. You can use a Stamp-a-ma-jig (SAMJ) if you want perfect placement. Use a little Dotto Adhesive to keep the butterfly in place while lining up the SAMJ.
- The VersaMark flourish was heat embossed with Black Embossing Powder.
- Variation–use Stampin' Write Markers to color the sections like a stained glass window!
- Bling, bling! Basic Jewels Rhinestones really jazz up the Big Designer Button and the medium size rhinestone fits neatly in the Antique Brad.
- That fun Real Red shape is the Top Note Bigz Die squared. Click here for my video tutorial to show you how to create it.
