Jenine’s Mindful Art Guest Project: Butterfly Card



Hi everyone, today I would like to share this fun JMA butterfly card project with you all!



Step 1:

I started my project by die cutting the large butterfly image, using the JMA-ES-CD204 die set, from craft coloured card stock.




Step 2:

Next I die cut some of the greenery from the JMA-ES-CD205 die set using dark olive green card stock, I adhered bits and pieces onto each other to fill up the right hand wing of the butterfly. Weaving in some of the other greenery parts using a lighter green card stock. I adhered these parts together using Ranger Medium Matte from the small bottle.



Step 3:

Using the same die set as mentioned in Step 2 I created some fun flower shapes using pink, yellow, creme and craft coloured card stock. I also glued these parts together using same glue as mentioned before.



Step 4:

I felt my craft coloured butterfly needed a little something extra so I applied a little bit of brown ink (Distress Ink Vintage Photo) using a stencil brush. Next I adhered the greenery and flower parts onto the right wing of the butterfly. I also added some Nuvo Crystal/Glitter Drops in Golden Sunset onto the body of the butterfly and some Stickles in Mercury Glass onto the hearts of the flowers and let that dry.



Step 5:

Time to work on my background panel: for this I die cut a rectangle panel one size smaller than my card base form black card stock and an even smaller panel from design paper that comes in the JMA-WYS-PP34 paper pad. Onto this last panel I stamped my sentiment, which is from the Kennedy Grace Creations Beautiful Blooms - Sweet Rose stamp set. Now I can adhere both rectangle panels together using liquid glue and adhere this combination onto a white linen textured card base using one millimetre thick foam tape.



Step 6:

To finish the project I now only have to adhere the butterfly that I created earlier on onto the card using liquid glue and two millimetre thick foam tape.
