Hi everyone, today I would like to share this fun JMA butterfly card project with you all!
I started my project by die cutting the large butterfly image, using the JMA-ES-CD204 die set, from craft coloured card stock.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
And that is it for today’s butterfly card project! I wish you a creative day!
