Quick and simple butterfly themed cards

We have lots of awesome butterfly themed products in the Stampin' Up! annual catalogue, and they make it really quick and easy to make a wow card. Here's two butterfly themed cards I have made.  This one uses the Fluttering Wings embossing folder, with the Watercolor Wings 3 step stamp set stamped in Mint Macaron. I have added some bling with the silver metallic thread and by using the Greetings thinlits (LOVE these) to cut my greeting in silver glimmer paper.

Butterfly 1

This one uses the background stamp from 'You've Got This' along with a butterfly punched from Mint Macaron DSP in the 2015-17 In Colour stack (oops with the upside down writing - don't tell anyone OK?). For the centre of the butterfly, I have used a couple of Pink Pirouette Candy Dots (adhesive brads which come in packs of 100, 10 of each of 10 colours in each Stampin' Up! color group). These are great embellishments to have on hand.

Stampin' Up! Butterfly Basics cards for every occasion

Here are some more cards I made on my mass produce note cards weekend just gone. I made up 20 of these and used a few different sentiments so I have cards on hand.

Stampin Up Butterfly Basics Notecards by Claire Daly Melbourne Australia

Don't be put off because the die looks intricate. I find it easy to get a good cut with these dies if you follow some steps:

  • I use injection foam on my more intricate dies, which really helps with getting a clean cut which pops off the die.
  • Make sure you have a firm 'sandwich' in your Bigshot. I placed the base magnetic plate, the acrylic plate, the die with the cut side facing upwards, the cardstock, the second acrylic plate and for these I added a cardstock shim.

It was quick and easy to cut 20 of the intricate butterfly, and then I popped out the extra pieces with the paper pierce while I was watching TV.

Here's the Stampin' Up! Colour Combination I used on these cards:
