Stampin’ Up Botanical Butterfly for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

 

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog  Hop.  If you are starting with me, welcome and be sure to hop around and see all the beautiful projects that everyone has made.  If you are hopping over from Amy Koenders blog, welcome to my blog. The 2nd Tuesday of every month this amazing group of ladies puts together a blog hop and you are guaranteed to see a lot of gorgeousness.  This months theme is ‘Birthday’.  I made a fun fold card for today’s blog hop.  I saw this design on Pinterest, but can not remember who made it.  Here is my card.

There are a lot of pieces to my card and all the measurements are found below.  I started with a Highland Heather panel of Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper and adhered it to a Basic Black mat using Snail.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Humming Along Stamp Set in Highland Heather Ink on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock.  I punched the sentiment out using the Pretty Label Punch.  I punched out 2 more of the labels from my Basic Black cardstock.

I adhered the 2 Basic Black labels using Snail behind the  sentiment so they were peeking out on the top and bottom.  I adhered a piece of 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon to the card front using Snail then  I adhered the matted sentiment on top of the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using the Butterfly Duet Punch, I punched out some butterflies from a couple different Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper (Sale-A-Bration item).  The great thing about this punch is it not only punches out the butterflies from the Butterfly Gala stamp set it also fits the butterflies on the Botanical Butterfly DSP which is a FREE item with a $50  during Sale-A-Bration.  I adhered 2 small and 1 large butterfly to the card front and 1 small butterfly to the sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added one of the Butterfly Elements (another Sale-A-Bration item) behind the sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I also added one of the Gingham Gala Adhesive-Backed Sequins to the sentiment.  I adhered the card front to a Highland Heather card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I adhered 2 panels of the Botanical Butterfly DSP to Basic Black mats using Snail and I adhered them both to either side of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using my Big Shot I cut out 4 stitched squares from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies in the Highland Heather Gingham Gala DSP.  I adhered all 4 of them to a Basic Black mat and a Highland Heather mat both cut from my Layering Squared Framelits Dies, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered a butterfly punched out from the Botanical Butterfly DSP, to each of the squares using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added a Gingham Gala Adhesive-Backed Sequins to each of the squares.  I adhered a Basic Black strip of paper, which had been scored, to the inside only adhering it on the 2 end sections.  I adhered each of the squares to a section of the Basic Black strip using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Here is a top view of the inside.

After I was all finished with the inside I realized that I didn’t leave a spot to put a sentiment or write, So I added another panel to the back.

I adhered a panel of the Highland Heather Gingham Gala DSP to a Basic Black mat using Snail.  On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Forever Lovely Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I added a couple more of the butterflies punched out from the Botanical Butterfly DSP and adhered them to the Whisper White panel and cut off what over hung using my Paper Snips.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the card back using Snail and adhered it to the back of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I adhered a couple of the large butterflies from the Botanical Butterfly DSP to the front of the envelope and a panel of the same DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card.

Paper Pumpkin is turning six and we want to celebrate with you! After all, we could not have shared all these years of creativity if it weren’t for our subscribers.
To celebrate this fun occasion and to thank everyone who supports Paper Pumpkin month after month, we’re offering a specially-designed March kit and a FREE STAMP SET. Oh, yes. You read that right. In March, you will receive TWO stamp sets with your Paper Pumpkin kit.

There has never been a better time to give Paper Pumpkin a try. And because it’s our sixth birthday celebration, we’ll be pulling out all the stops. You’ll get an adorable kit, a special box, and most importantly, you’ll get TWO stamp sets instead of one.
$20 for a Paper Pumpkin kit is always a steal, but in March the deal is even better! There has never been a better time for you to join Paper Pumpkin.

Because it’s our birthday, we decided to create a kit that is perfect for making birthday cards!
The March kit features eight full-sized, mailable cards
Coordinating colors are Basic Black, Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo, and Poppy Parade
This kit has an element that is sure to “pop”!
The FREE stamp set is even bigger and better than your typical Paper Pumpkin stamp set and can be used on a variety of crafting projects.

A subscriber must have an active subscription by March 10, 2019 in order to receive the March kit.
The FREE stamp set coordinates with the March kit but it is not needed to complete the projects.
Supplies may be limited toward the end of the subscription period, so DON’T WAIT.
