Beautiful Butterflies in Night of Navy & Silver

Beautiful Butterflies in Night of Navy & Silver

These beautiful butterflies in Night of Navy and Silver will make any creation sparkle!  The thinlits come in 2 different designs that complement each other and are so easy to match up. You can cut them in any coordinating colours and then that’s all you’d need.  Or you can add background images like I did on this card to give them a place to fly!  I love how the reversible ribbon ties the variety of butterflies all together.

 

Details of how this card was made:

  1. Cut Balmy Blue Cardstock at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2” – Fold in 1/2 to create standard card size of 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″.
  2. Cut Whisper White Cardstock at 5-1/4″ x 4″.  Use the largest Rectangle Stitched Framelit with the Big Shot to get a design around the edge.
  3. Use Balmy Blue Classic Ink, Granny Apple Green Classic Ink and Night of Navy Classic Ink to stamp background images.  Attach to the card base with Snail Adhesive.
  4. Cut a length of Reversible Ribbon – attach with Mini Glue Dots over the Whisper White Cardstock layer.
  5. Cut Night of Navy Cardstock at 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ – cut a piece of Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet at 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″.
