Another Bendy Fold Card!

Hello and welcome here! After I made my Nativity Bendy Fold Card, I wanted to make one with Butterflies. I posted Instructions on how to make one HERE, just scroll towards the bottom of the post. For those coming to The Scrapbook Cottage's Creative Gathering, this is one of the cards I am teaching!!

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.
