Butterfly Basics

At my card making class on Saturday, my ladies and I were talking about how we don't really like making Sympathy cards, only because of the reason we need to make them. But at times, we do need to make them, so here' one I made for a friend of mine.

Style Techniques


1)  How to make the Glitter Butterfly - this is so easy you'll love it!


  • Die cut the medium size Butterfly from the 'Butterflies Thinlits Dies' (Occasions Catalogue).
  • Cover entire area of the butterfly with Stampin' Up!'s Glue Stick.
  • Pour lots of Dazzling Diamonds Glitter all over it and press the glitter down firmly with your finger tips.
  • And, 'viola', you have one Gorgeous, Glittery, Butterfly!

2)  How to Get Water Wash Butterflies:

  • Ink Butterfly stamp up with Blackberry Bliss Ink, stamp off on a scrap piece of paper then stamp onto a separate piece of Whisper White card stock, then stamp again without re-inking. Punch the two Butterflies out with the Bitty Butterfly Punch and adhere to card.

 3)  Soft Fern Frond

  • Ink stamp up in Mossy Meadow, stamp off once then stamp straight onto card front.

4)   Stenciled Roses

  • I used the Rose Die-cut card piece from the Artisan Embellishment Kit as a Stencil and sponged with a sponge dauber with Soft Sky Ink.

Style Info

  • I purchased the Butterfly Basics Stamp Set and the Butterflies Thinlits Dies as a Bundle which saved me 15% if purchased separately. You can purchase them separately though.
  • The Artisan Embellishment Kit is really Beautiful! As a part of it, you get 2 gorgeous Rose Die-cut card pieces which you can adhere directly onto a card front, which is really pretty, and/or use one as a stencil as I did here. The stencilled one looks really pretty with the ink from stencilling so later, if you're sick of it, you can use it on a card front also!
  • This card makes a really pretty Birthday Card too!
