Good Tuesday morning. I have one more die cut butterfly, flowers and scallop layer card to share with you today. I most likely will put the butterfly dies away for a little rest as I have made so many cards using them recently but I just can’t seem to help myself. I think they are so pretty and look great on a clean white background. I couldn’t resist adding two small purple strips to the scallop layer for another element of dimension and interest.
The Scallop Layer and Strips
I cut the purple layer and attached it to the white card base using strips of mounting tape. I cut the white scallop layer, applied mounting tape to the back of it and attached it to the purple base layer. I cut a partial portion of the scallop die using the purple cardstock and cut the strips and attached them to the white scallop layer using double stick tape.
The Butterfly and Flowers
I cut the solid butterfly in purple and the decorative butterfly layer in white. I attached the two pieces together using glossy accents. I cut purple flowers and formed them using my stylus and molding pad. I cut the foliage and formed them gently with my fingers. I attached three main foliage layers to the center of the butterflies using glossy accent to create a base for the flowers. I attached several flowers using glossy accents and then tucked a few more pieces of foliage to the arrangement to finish.
Assembling the Die Cut Butterfly, Flowers and Scallop Layer
I attached the butterfly to the scalloped layer with a piece of mounting tape. I finished by attaching small pre made white Nuvo Crystal Drops to the flower centers using glossy accents.
I love playing with the die cut butterfly, flowers and scallop layer and think this is such an elegant combination for a card. It is so versatile and could be used for so many occasions. I hope you haven’t tired of seeing so many projects made using one of my favorite color combination for summer cards.
