Die Cut Butterfly Wings with Flowers

I have been having fun making die cut butterfly wings with flowers lately.  There is something so beautiful and elegant about the delicate decorative butterfly shape in white layered over a colored butterfly base.  I especially love the all white frame and background and how it allows the blue base and flowers pop.  My project today was made using the Rubbernecker 947-01B 2 Part Butterfly #2, 5119D Nested Circle Scallop w/ Holes, 5022D Nested Circle w/ Pierce Die, 5110D Small Leaf Group and 5114D Mini Flower Stack.  Both the Small Leaf Group and Mini Flower Stack dies are included in the Kittie Kraft Basics bundle.

Assembling the Frame

I started by creating the double matted frame using the two circle die sets.  I used the Nested Circle w/ Pierce die for the inner mat but you won’t see any pierce marks.  I wanted the mat to be a little wider than normal and that die was the perfect size.  The two frame layers were attached together using mounting tape and were then attached to the card base with another layer of mounting tape.

Assembling the Die Cut Butterfly Wings and Flowers

The white decorative butterfly was attached to the blue base with a piece of mounting tape and then both were attached to the card base with another piece of mounting tape.  The foliage and flowers were attached to the butterfly using glossy accents and then I added small pre made white Nuvo Crystal Drops to the flower center and attached with glossy accents.  I finished by pulling up slightly on the wings of the white layer to create more dimension.  I think this is butterfly is so elegant and can be used for so many occasions when you need a feminine card.

I sure do appreciate you coming by today.  Do you have some pretty layering butterfly dies?  There are so many ways to use them to create gorgeous and elegant cards. I hope you have been inspired to create your own project using die cut butterfly wings with flowers and foliage.

Die Cut Flower and Butterfly

I love making cards with a die cut flower and butterfly together and using my favorite spring and summer color combination of purple, green and white.  Adding a frame and decorative background makes it even prettier and more interesting. My project today was made using the Rubbernecker 5102D 2 Part Butterfly #3, 5100-01D Small Flower Die, 5100D Small Leaf Group, 5026D Circle Lattice Die, 5122D Rectangle Stitch One Piece Die and 5013D Nested Rectangle Small Stitch Die.  You can also find the flower and leaves in the Kittie Kraft Basics Bundle.

Die cut flower and butterfly makes such a pretty card.

The flower sections were cut and formed using my Garden Tool Kit stylus and molding pad and attached together using glossy accents.  The two butterfly sections were attached together in the center using glossy accents. The leaves were gently formed using the stylus and molding pad.  The two frame sections were attached together on the back using double stick tape and then I attached the circle lattice piece directly to the back of the frame.

I attached strips of mounting tape to the back of the stitched rectangle and the lattice frame and attached them both to the card base.  The flowers, leaves and butterfly were attached to the frame using glossy accents.  I added white snow pearls to the to the flower center and butterfly for the finishing touch.  I love the the frame and rectangle background have matching stitches.

Thanks so much for coming by and I hope you have a great day.  I waiver back and forth about whether I love making dimensional scene cards or flower cards.  It seems impossible to decide.  LOL!  I hope you have been inspired to get out your toys and make your own framed die cut flower and butterfly card.

Framed Die Cut Paper Flowers Card

There is just something I love about creating framed die cut paper flowers on my card projects.  Adding a sweet sentiment like the one I used today adds another special touch. “If I had a flower for every time I think of you, I could walk in my garden forever!” 

My project was made using Rubbernecker Wildflower SetMixable Flower Stack Die 5112D, Rectangle Stitch One Piece Combined DieSmall Leaf Group and Small Butterfly.

Framed die cut paper flowers make such a lovely elegant card.

I started by cutting out the frames and kept three of them attached together.  I love the stitched borders and think it adds interest to the frame.  I secured the stamp and cardstock in my MISTI and stamped the image using black Versafine.  The frame was attached over the sentiment on the card front using mounting tape.

Using framed die cut paper flowers make such a lovely elegant card.

The flowers were formed using the stylus from my Garden Tool Kit and molding pad and I attached the layers together using glossy accents.  I applied glossy accents to the back of the flowers and attached them to the frame corners.  I gently curved the leaves using my fingers and tucked them under the flowers and attached them with glossy accents.  I added snow pearls to the flower center for the perfect finish.

Framed die cut paper flowers are so elegant on a card.

I appreciate you coming by today and sure hope you have been inspired to make a framed die cut paper flowers card of your own.

Floral Frame and Butterfly

Good Saturday afternoon.  I hope your first full week of 2017 has been a good one.  I have another project to share with you made using the Hero Arts Floral Border with Frame and the Scrapberry’s In Bloom paper.  This time I added a butterfly from the Impression Obsession Medium Butterflies set.

I cut the floral border out once using a piece of 5.25” x 4.00” cardstock and then cut it again with the oval frame attached.  I rolled double stick tape to create an adhesive strip, attached it to the back of the frame layer and then attached it over the base frame layer.

I attached the frame layer to the card base with mounting tape.  I attached the butterfly to the base using glossy accents.  I added several clear sequins with glossy accents to add a touch of sparkle.

Shady Tree and Elephant

Good Sunday morning.  I made several baby cards with the new Impression Obsession Patchwork Elephant over the last couple of weeks using coordinating designer paper.  I think he looks equally cute done in plain grey and pink.  I paired him in a scene with the Taylored Expressions Shade Tree Cutting Plate, Impression Obsession Leaves and Stems and Tiny flowers and My Favorite Things Fresh Cut Grass.  The frame was made using the Nesting Card Templates.

I started by attaching the grass and shade tree to the back of the frame suing double stick tape. I applied thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and attached it to the card base. I assembled the elephant parts together with glossy accents and mounting tape and tucked him in behind the grass and attached to the card base with mounting tape.

I used my stylus and molding pad to form several tiny flowers for the tree and stems and attached them with glossy accents.  I tucked the stems in around the base of the tree and attached with glossy accents.  I couldn’t resist adding one tiny flower with leaves to the elephant’s ear and a few butterflies for the finishing touch.

Vintage Rose Spray

Good Thursday morning.  I’ve had this Pink Paislee C`est La Vie paper pad for a while and I love rustic background with the pink and white roses. I embellished the paper with a simple floral spray using the Impression Obsession Spiral Flowers Large, Foliage , Butterfly Set and Border Duo 1.

I attached the designer paper to the card front using ATG adhesive and then attached the decorative border using mounting tape.

I cut apart two sections of the foliage and attached them to the card base with glossy accents to create the foliage base.  I formed the rolled roses around the tip of my tweezers, secured them closed with glossy accents and then attached them to the foliage with glossy accents.  I tucked several small pieces of the foliage under the roses to fill in and then finished by adding the butterflies and tiny cream flowers.
