STAMPIN’ PRETTY STEP-BY-STEP TUTORIAL:

Begin with a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card base of Gray Granite card stock. 

Layer and adhere a 2 1/2 x 3 3/4 piece of Mango Melody card stock to a 3 3/4 x 5 piece of Whisper White card stock with Snail Adhesive.   Adhere to the card base.

Learn how to create this handmade card using the Beauty Abounds Cling Bundle by Stampin' Up! Butterflies. Mary Fish, Stampin' PrettyUse the Big Shot, Precision Base Plate and layering butterfly dies (Butterfly Beauty Thinlits Dies) to crop a piece of Vellum card stock (lower) and Basic Black card stock (upper). Run the dies and card stock (or vellum) back and forth through the Big Shot several times to ensure a clean cut.

TIP:  To make adhering to the vellum butterfly die cut easier, run the Basic Black card stock and butterfly die through the Big Shot with a Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet.  Use the Big Shot Die Brush to easily remove the tiny bits of card stock from the die-cut butterflies. 

Adhere to the card base with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals placed inconspicuously below the sentiment and butterfly bodies.

Mary Fish, Stampin' PrettyUse the Stamparatus to stamp the sentiment in Versamark Ink onto Basic Black card stock.  TIP: Remove lose bits of embossing powder with the sticky end of the Take Your Pick tool before heating.  Here are my video tips for better heat embossing.

Crop “hello” with the Big Shot and the Bunch of Banners Die.  Snip off the right flagged end.  Adhere with two Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For the perfect touch, use the spatula end of the Take a Pick Tool to add the Mango Melody self-adhesive dots (Best Route Enamel Dots) to the butterflies and sentiment.

  2. How do you make such gorgeous things day in and day out? This is quite amazing! ♥

  3. Those butterflies are so pretty no matter what design or layout is used. Yours is very pretty. Thanks for the reminder about using an adhesive sheet with the vellum. I have some, but don’t always think to use it. Have a great day!

  4. I need to tell you, Mary, that I just love looking at your cards. They are so tailored and always look so well-balanced! Thank you for sharing your talents with us.

  5. Cool idea to use the vellum cardstock as one of the layers. The vellum is so much more subtle than a cardstock layer. It makes the butterfly die “pop”, especially in combination with the other colors you used.
