Creative Team Butterfly Greetings Card

Creative Team Butterfly Greetings Card

By Creative Team member - Linda Drynan



Supplies:


Small pieces of green coloured card stock (three different greens for leaves)
Small 2mm adhesive bling

 

Instructions:

 
Cut piece of white card stock 4 by 5 7/10 inches (10 cm x 14.5 cm)

With your sponge applicator, randomly apply the 3 distress oxide colours over the card.  I always start with my lightest colour eg spiced marmalade and progress to the darkest. Cover the entire piece of card.

Then take another piece of white card stock 3 9/10 by 5 ½ inches (9.7 cm by 13.7 cm) and die cut the filigree butterflies in the upper left position and bottom right area retaining the die cut butterflies.

Fold your green card base in half and attach the dioxide coloured piece on top.  Then take the die cut piece of white card stock and attach on top.  Apply glue just to the abdomen of the die cut detail butterflies and replace in the space from whence they came.  Die cut 3 pieces of the swirl part of the Crafts 4U 10152 butterfly swirl die in the three variations of green card stock.  Trim just before the butterfly and attach to the card.  Add some 2 mm crystal bling to the tips of the antennae of the butterflies and a couple of groupings of three around the card.   Finally, glue the wooden Happy Birthday greeting on to some of the dark green card stock, trim and attach to the card.
