I thought the butterfly and watercolor flowers paper were perfect together. The flower print on the paper is gorgeous and needed to be seen. Thanks for coming by and I hope you are enjoying a wonderful Saturday.
I love the way the Robin’s Egg blue butterfly and flowers pop against the all white background and how the double matted frame adds dimension and interest without detracting from the main focal point. The touches of green foliage and tiny flowers are the perfect embellishment for this feminine card.
I hope you have enjoyed seeing this pretty die cut butterfly and flowers project from the past. You can see all the step by step instructions on the original post. This was really a fast and easy card to make and I think it is perfect for many different occasions. Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a great day.
Good Monday morning. My project today is a circle framed die cut butterfly card made using the Rubbernecker Nested Circle X Stitch set, 2 Part Butterfly # 1, Flower Buds, Flower Stems and French Script Background. I’ve had the French Script Background and Nested Circle X Stitch for a while but this is my first time using them. I thought the soft blue script looked pretty as a background for the decorative butterfly and the X stitch pattern on the frame adds another element of interest.
The French Script Background and Frame
I secured the large background stamp and cardstock in my MISTI, applied the Baby Blue ink to the stamp and stamped the image. Next, I cut the stamped image layer to 4.25″ ti fit on the 4.50″ blue layer. I applied mounting tape to the back of the blue layer and attached it to the card base.
The frame was cut using the two largest frames in the set. I used my magnetic platform to secure the dies in place on the cardstock and cut. I applied thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and attached it to the script layer.
The Butterfly and Flowers
I cut the butterfly sections and attached them together using glossy accents. I formed the flower buds using my stylus and molding pad. Next, I attached pieces of the flower stems to the base of the butterfly using glossy accents. I attached several flowers to the stems in a cluster using glossy accents. The butterfly was attached to the card base using a piece of mounting tape.
I think the circle framed die cut butterfly card is so pretty and elegant. Thank you for coming by and I hope you enjoyed seeing my project and that you have a great day.

The Stenciled Pattern
I don’t often use a stenciling technique but thought it would be fun to see if I could use the lattice die cut to create a nice pattern. I cut the Circle Lattice Die using a 4.5″ piece of scratch cardstock. The die is only two inches wide and I wanted to double the size so I line the die up along the first cut line and cut a second time to create a 4″ square die cut. I placed the die cut lattice over a piece of white cardstock to use as a stencil and secured in place using painter’s tape. Next, I used a stylus tool and foam tip along with Tumbled Glass ink to create the lattice pattern on the cardstock layer. Once I was finished I heat set the ink with my heat gun.
I cut a Square Combo frame using the patterned cardstock and cut a second frame using white cardstock. I turned the white and patterned frame layers face down and attached them all together using double stick tape. Next, I applied strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and attached it to the 5″ square card base.
The Butterfly and Flowers
I cut both sections of the 2 Part Butterfly #2 using white cardstock. Next, I applied Tumbled Glass to the base butterfly using the stylus and foam tip. I applied the blue ink to a scratch piece of white cardstock and cut tiny flowers using the Flower Buds die. I cut several pieces of Flower Stems to use along with the flowers to embellish the butterfly. I used my molding pad and stylus to form the tiny flowers.
Die Cut Lattice and Butterfly Card
I attached the white decorative layer of the butterfly to the blue base using glossy accents. Next, I attached white flower stems to the butterfly using glossy accents to create a base for the flowers. I used glossy accents to attach flowers and then attached the whole embellished butterfly to the lattice frame using a piece of mounting tape. I finished by applying small dots of glossy accents to the flower centers and attaching white pre made Nuvo Crystal Drops.
I hope you enjoyed seeing my die cut lattice and butterfly card. It was lots of fun creating my lattice stenciled frame to match the lattice die cut and I have been inspired with lots of ideas for using some of my other dies to create stencils for future projects. Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a great day.
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.
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. You can check out this butterfly link if you are interested in seeing more butterfly projects I’ve made recently.
I lined up the circle lattice die on my cardstock and cut. I lined it up against the first cut and cut a second time. I wanted the lattice background to be large enough to fit in behind the scalloped frame. I measured and cut the lattice and attached to the back of the frame using double stick tape. I applied thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the framed lattice and attached it to the pink scalloped layer. I applied another layer of mounting tape to the back of the pink layer and attached it to the white card base.
Lattice and Butterfly with Flowers
I cut the pink and white butterflies, applied glossy accents to the body portion of the white butterfly and attached it to the pink butterfly. Next I applied mounting tape to the back of the butterfly and attached it to the lattice layer. I cut one section of the flower layers, formed them with my stylus and molding pad and attached the sections together using glossy accents. I cut a couple sections of the leaf group and cut the branches apart. I created a foliage base on the back of the butterfly by attaching a few branches using glossy accents. The large flower was attached to the foliage base with glossy accents and then I tucked several more branches under and around the flower and butterfly to fill in the arrangement. I formed tiny flowers using my stylus and molding pad and attached the flowers all around the foliage using glossy accents. I attached one pre made white Nuvo Crystal Drop in the center of the large flower to finish.
Thank you for coming by today. I hope you have time this weekend to get your dies and punches out to create your own lattice and butterfly with flowers project.
