I have another framed flowers and butterfly card to share with you today made using Rubbernecker 947-01B 2 Part Butterfly #2, 5144-04 Nested Square X Stitch, 5126D Tree Panel # 1, 5114D Mini Flower Stack, and 5131D Square Combo #1 OPC. Instead of creating my usual clean and simple background I used a colorful paper from the My Mind’s Eye Hello Gorgeous pad. I thought it was the perfect floral background for the butterfly to appear flitting around.
Assembling the Frame and Tree Panel
The square combo frame die and tree panel die were cut using green cardstock. I applied double tick tape on the back of the smaller scalloped frame layer, attached the tree panel and cut off the excess. The tree frame was attached to the X stitched layer with thin strips of mounting. Another layer of mounting tape strips was attached to the back of the X stitched layer and it was attached to the larger scalloped frame.
Assembling the Card Base Layout
I cut a second square combo frame section and a strip of designer paper and then attached the scalloped border to the back of the strip using double stick tape. I cut the strip in half and attached the sections at the top and bottom of the card using double stick tape. The framed flowers layer was attached to the card base using thin strips of mounting tape.
Assembling the Framed Flowers and Butterfly
I formed several tiny flowers using my stylus and molding pad and attached them to the tree branches inside the frame. The two sections of butterfly were attached together with mounting tape and were attached to the frame using glossy accents. I embellished the butterfly by attaching a few of the trimmed off tree panel branches and tiny flowers with glossy accents. I finished by applying pre made cream Nuvo Crystal Drops to the flowers centers with glossy accents.
I really like all the texture created by using the scalloped frame and X stitched layer together. I think it adds interest to the project. Thank you for coming by today. I hope you have enjoyed seeing my project and have been inspired to create your own framed flowers and butterfly project.
