Butterfly Hugs for a Friend Card

Sympathy Card Idea Using Stampin Up Bold Butterfly Die - Mary Fish StampinUp

I was in the mood for butterflies and needed an uplifting friend card.  The Stampin’ Up! Bold Butterfly Framelits Dies were the perfect solution.

STAMPIN’ PRETTY TIPS:

The Lemon Lime Twist, Wisteria Wonder and Pool Party butterflies received a subtle ombre effect  using Sponge Daubers and coordinating inks.

The “hugs” sentiment is from Lovely Words Thinlits Dies.  I simply snipped it from the circle.  To add a cool, 3-D lift, I adhered Mini Stampin’ Dimensional halves in the widest spots.

I love the look of bold colors and crisp Whisper White.  Tutti-Frutti Adhesive Backed Sequins add colorful personality and pop.
