Card Size: 4.25" x 5.5"
It's a happy butterfly day! I punched out the smaller butterflies with my various Martha Stewart punches from white CS, then I sponged daubed Antique Linen to soften the white...I didn't use cream CS because I didn't want a 'flat' look to my butterflies or clouds.
I used Martha Stewart's Vintage Floral Border punch along the top of the flaps that open. It adds a bit of softness to the card. I sponged daubed Distress Inks Tea Dye along the edges of the card sections to give it a finished look. I used the Vintage Floral Corner punch at the top of the middle section to tie it all in.
Here is the card with the smaller flap open. I didn't add a thing to the back of the flap except the Tea Dye ink around the edges.
With both flaps open. I made a 'hill' out of cream CS and Paper Trey Ink Edgers #2 Die, it's also the perfect spot to write your message.
This is the back of the card with both flaps open. I added a fence with Martha Stewart's Garden Trellis punch, and added flowers with Martha Stewart's Hydrangea Punch. Hmmmm, I'm beginning to see a pattern here, lol, I should call this a Martha Stewart card for all the punches I used on it:)
Here's a closer view of the middle section on the back of the card. I added Platinum Stickles to the middle of the flowers.
For the big butterfly I used Spellbinder's Wonderful Wings die. I cut the shadow piece from vellum that was covered with Sookwang tape. I then removed the backing on the adhesive and placed my cream CS inked with Antique Linen butterfly on top of the adhesive. I then added Glitter Ritz Warm Highlights to the exposed adhesive. Glitter Ritz is a micro fine glitter.
