Welcome to day 4 of the sneak peeks of Butterfly Dreams! The stamp set and butterfly die will be available from Papertrey Ink on February 15th.
When I was creating with Butterfly Dreams, I seemed to get stuck on creating cards using vintage
cream and pairing it with another soft color. I love how they turned out, though, so I
think it was a good thing!
For this card, I paired one of the background stamps from Butterfly Dreams with Background Basics: Text Style II to create the stamped pattern. Then, I inked the edges with the tea dye duo inks and stitched around the edge before adhering it to my vintage cream card base. I stamped the polka dots using Polka Dot Basics II, inked the edges, and wrapped a piece of dark chocolate twill around it. I stamped the butterfly and sentiment on vintage cream cardstock and cut it out with a rectangle nestability die. Then, I colored the butterfly with a pink copic marker, and inked the edges before adhering the piece with foam adhesive.
I love how vintage cream looks with aqua mist, too. The colors are just soft and pretty! I stamped the pattern in the same way that I did the first card using Butterfly Dreams and Background Basics: Text Style II. I sponged the edges of my patterned paper and my card base with dark chocolate ink. Then, I stitched the patterned layer to a dark chocolate and an aqua mist layer. I tied an aqua mist ribbon around my stamped layer and stitched a dark chocolate button in the center of the bow. Then, I stamped the sentiment in dark chocolate ink. I die cut the butterfly and stamped it in dark chocolate ink. I colored the flowers and dots with a copic marker, added some rhinestones to the flowers, and adhered the butterfly to my card. Last, I doodled the flight line. (Wish that part had turned out better! Don't you hate it when you mess up one tiny little thing when you're finishing up the card!)
Have a great weekend!
