Butterfly Basics Card from Scraps!

I had scraps of paper on my workbench and decided to use them and see what I could come up with. In my scrap pile was a piece of watercolor paper and a piece of Wildflower Fields Designer Series Paper ( Free with qualifying order ) with a butterfly cut out of it.

I laid the designer paper over the watercolor paper and stamped the body of the butterfly from Butterfly Basics stamp set in the center of the cut out butterfly using Crushed Curry ink. I had cut a butterfly out of the designer paper using my Bold Butterfly Framelits Die, to use on another card. That is where the scrap came from.

Using my Butterflies Thinlits die and Botanical Designer Series Vellum ( Free with qualifying order ) I cut out a butterfly and layered it over the stamped image to give it some dimension. To adhere it I used the Fine Tip Glue. I punched smaller butterflies from the vellum with the Bitty Butterfly punch, adhered with a glue dot and added sequins.

The Metallics Glitter Tape ( Free with a qualifying order ) was sitting in front of me on my workbench so I decided to cut a small length of it to add to the card.

 If you look closely you will see that I added a bit of Silver Metallic Thread underneath the stamped sentiment.

 Starting with scrap pieces of cardstock developed into a beautiful card! The Butterfly Basics stamp set and the Butterflies Thinlits Dies are sold as a bundle for a 15% savings. However, you can purchase separately if you wish. The Bold Butterfly Framelits are sold separately.
