I’m not afraid to mix bold colors and today’s butterfly card shows you the WOW! you can achieve with Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie and a crisp, black butterfly silhouette!
I used this week’s Pals Paper Arts Sketch Challenge (PPA294) by Dawn Tidd as the foundation of my design. I skewed the butterfly and layer below for a bit for movement and touch of whimsy! See what the rest of the PPA Design Team came up with using this sketch and play along here.
STAMPIN’ PRETTY TIPS:
- The beautiful butterfly was created using the Stampin’ Up! Butterflies Thinlits Dies. I love using the Big Shot Die Brush for removing the little die cut bits with ease. Here’s my video demonstration on using the brush.
- I used both the sentiment as well as the dotted pattern (on the Melon Mambo layer) from the Watercolor Wings Photopolymer Stamp Set.
- The butterfly card measures 5″ square. I created a custom envelope using Stampin’ Up! Neutrals Envelope Paper (the perfect weight for envelopes) and the Envelope Punch Board.
- Line it! I added a touch of Everyday Chic Designer Series Paper (see preview) as an envelope liner. My video showing how to use the Envelope Punch Board to create a liner with almost no waste is here.
