Stunning Butterfly card by NEW Design Team Member - Lori Williams!

Hi Everyone…It’s Lori here with you today sharing a quick and easy card that is sure to brighten anyones day.  The butterflies are applied on the card as if they are taking off in flight.  
Fly card by Lori Williams

This card was simple to make.  I started off with some designer paper  ( 4 x 5 ¼ “) and used the stencil from the stamp set to add some paste randomly to the front of my card.  I then let it dry and then painted it with gold paint.  Once the paint set I sanded a bit to even and blend everything out.  Next I cut a piece of brown card stock 4 ¼ x 5  ½ “ and layered the embellish paper over the top.  I love stitching my cards on the sewing machine.  I think it gives it a great extra detail, so I stitched around this card.  Next I stamped multiply butterflies on brown designer paper with Versa Mark Ink and then covered with gold embossing powder and heat set.  Once I had done this for all the butterflies I fussy cut them out.  I then attached them to the front of the card with glue as if they were taking off in flight being sure to pinch their wings up a bit for a three dimensional look.  The card was finished off with the font letters spelling out FLY and then I glued everything down to a 4 ¼ x 5 ½ base card.  

I’m not sure who I’ll send this one out to, but I’m sure who ever it is, they’ll love it.  I hope you’ll give one a try yourself and send out to a friend or loved one.

  1. Beautiful butterflies, love the gold embossing on brown cardstock. And the texture of the paste with the gold paint just adds so much elegance. Love it!
