Work of Art Butterfly

Today I have a quick & easy card that was part of my All Occasions Card Class this past week. It uses just two stamp sets...Work of Art & Perfect Pairings along with two colors of ink...Bermuda Bay & Pear Pizzazz.


I used the swoosh image from Work of Art stamped three times onto Whisper White cardstock. First, in Bermuda Bay, then quickly stamp again without re-inking for a lighter shade of Bermuda Bay, finally inked in Pear Pizzazz. For my sentiment I used the Sale-A-Brations stamp set Perfect Pairings, which is available for FREE for just a short time longer.

Next, diecut using the Butterflies Thinlits. Apply a strip of Bermuda Bay Sequin Trim to the body of the butterfly. Leave the top threads loose for the antennae, tuck the bottom threads under and hold with a glue dot. After adhering the stamped layer to the card base...in this case I used Watermelon Wonder, attach only the center,  body portion of the butterfly to the base so that the wings are free for some dimension.

Thanks to Mary for the inspiration for this card! I saw her card on pinterest and knew I wanted to try it myself...I just changed up the colors.

Sale-A-Bration is winding down...the last day to select FREE items with your order is Thursday, March 31st. Don't delay...shop today!

What a great card, Lynn! I've had several customers purchase Work of Art & I'll have to share this idea with them.

Thanks for sharing!
