Butterflies Spring Card

This winter has been really brutal here in Ohio. I am ready for spring so today I decided to make a butterflies spring card. I used a beautiful new die that is available for pre-order. The die is an expandable pattern die.

Here is a list of the products that I used that are available for purchase on the Cut at Home website.
Spellbinders Butterflies Expandable pattern Shapeabilities – SKU: S5-221
Spellbinders Long Classic Scalloped Rectangles Large – SKU: S4-143
Echo Park Hippity Hoppity Mini Theme Collection 12 x 12 – SKU: SW40005
Tim Holtz Distress Ink, Spun Sugar – SKU: TIM27164
I also used a couple of other products from my stash, Smooch paint, Pebbles Chalk, ribbon and some embellishments.

First I cut a card base for a 5″ x 7″ card. I also cut one butterflies die in yellow, I used swiss dot card stock by Bazzill,and one in pink dotted from the Echo Park collection. I also cut a 5″ x 7″ in the pink for my card base. I used the chalk and distress ink to highlight my butterflies background, watch the video below to see how I did it.

Once I was finished with my inking I was ready to put my card together.
First I adhered the 5″ x 7″ pink card stock to the card base, then I adhered the chalked and inked butterflies cut piece. I ran a piece of ribbon through my Zyron X sticker maker, added a buckle and adhered it to the card. Next I adhered the two scalloped rectangles, on the smaller rectangle I stamped the “Spring Joy” sentiment. Then I used glue dots to adhere the butterflies and used some embellishments as well as the smooch paint to create the butterflies bodies.
Here is the finished card, and my little taste of spring as we are heading for another week of below normal temperatures!
I hope you enjoyed my project, till next time Thanks and Happy Scrappin,

    That’s strange, it shows up normally on my ipad, hopefully anyone else who sees it upside down will let me know.
