Introducing Butterfly Blooms & A Bit More: Butterfly Blooms

Good morning, friends! It's Day 2 of the Papertrey Ink March countdown and today I'm sharing a project made with Heather's new sets, Butterfly Blooms and A Bit More: Butterfly Blooms. The butterflies in these sets are gorgeously detailed and would look beautiful colored or simply embossed like I have. How about a closer look?


I heat embossed the butterflies from both sets using white powder on vellum. I die cut the larger butterfly and hand cut the smaller butterfly before setting them aside to work on the front panel.


I stamped a collage of flowers and leaves (from both sets) in a strip across a white panel. I stamped my sentiment in Smokey Shadow before adhering that panel to an Aqua Mist card base.


I embellished the centers of the open flowers with clear glitter before adding the butterflies with foam tape. The tape is concealed under the embossing of the butterfly bodies, so I don't have to worry about the adhesive being visible.

Thank you so much for joining me today! Make sure to check in with AmyBetsy, Heather, Laurie, Melissa BMelissa P, MichelleStephanie, and Lexi to see more of this month's release!

Happy Mother's Day Card
