I love butterfly cards. My dear friend Vikki does not like butterflies. I think of her every time I make a butterfly card, which I am sure you all know is often!
This set is in the Stampin’ Up! Occasions catalog. I believe I was told that it will be in the new catalog that starts in a few weeks. Yay! There is also a large flower image that I cannot wait to use as well.
I picked up a Kaleidacolor ink pad at my friend (and SU! Demonstrator) Barb’s rubber rummage. It is Desert Heat. I was thinking it was mostly fall colors. They are perfect for summer too! The one shade (each pad has five pads) is very close to Stampin’ Up! Strawberry Slush. That worked great for me. For fall, I will try to find an orange that matches.
I made two of this card. One was a birthday card for my dear friend and fellow stamper Lora. The other was for my Mom for Mother’s Day.
I’m sorry the picture is a little dark.
I added pearls to the Modern Label punched piece for my Mom’s card.
I am not good at fussy cutting as you can probably tell, yet I still do it.
The butterfly is embossed onto glossy white card stock. Then I inked up my brayer using the Kaleidacolor ink pad. I left the ink pads separated. I usually only slide them together when stamping an image. I was taught to push the brayer in one direction over the card stock. Going back and forth can get messy. When you are done you can use a dry kleenex to remove the ink from the embossed lines.
