Fancy Butterflies

For crafting fun, join us at Try Stampin' on Tuesday Biweekly Challenge #499. This challenge begins on Tuesday, March 23, and runs through Sunday evening, April 4, 2021. While the challenge requires the use of a sketch, there is an optional element to include butterflies in your project. I tilted the sketch and created my card with a landscape orientation.

             Original                          Tilted

Using a patterned paper collection that has been stored in my stash for several years, I added a gray panel to a white card base. Next, I added a die-cut stitched rectangle in a yellow print directly to the gray panel. Using foam tape, I added a smaller die-cut rectangle in a gray, white, and yellow design. In keeping with the sketch, I added some angled strips of silver glimmer paper to represent the banners. For the optional theme, I die-cut two butterflies - one from the yellow paper and another from silver glimmer paper, adhering them so the wings are slightly lifted. A few rhinestones were also added. The inside was decorated with a smaller yellow butterfly and some silver glimmer paper. No sentiment was required by the sketch, so I omitted a stamped greeting until I use the card.

We hope you'll take a look at the
TSOT499 Blog and join our challenge!
