Butterfly Inspirations with Stefanie and Karen!

Hi everyone, hope you’re having a great week! I’m sharing two gorgeous creations from our team this evening and they both happen to have butterflies as the core element of the card!

First we have Stefanie’s card! Her creation is so bright and delightful!

She blended a beautiful background using the Mega Blocks – Penguin Perfect Patterns 6×6 stencil. I love how she used Layer 4 from the Butterfly Emergence 2 in 1 Layered Dies and pair it with vellum to create this dreamy look – so gorgeous!

I also love how this card works for a lot of different occasions; anniversaries, friendships, just because, valentine’s, you name it!

Next we have Karen’s inspiration. Her card also features the butterfly from the Butterfly Emergence 2 in 1 Layered Dies. She picked just one of the dies from Layer 3. I really love how this intricate die alone gives a card an elegant focal point!

For the background, she used the Slimline Oriental Cover Die. This is a slimline cover die, and she cleverly trimmed this off so that it works for her standard size card!

The sentiment is from Magical Christmas Sentiments. She added a few gems to finish it off.

Thank you so much Stefanie and Karen for your wonderful inspirations!

Thank you for stopping by, have a great rest of the week everyone!

Using this 5 x 7 Floral Garden Cover Die on deep navy blue cardstocks and pairing it with a golden die-cut butterfly from Butterfly Emergence 2 in 1 Layered Dies, Stefanie’s card is looking super elegant and classy! I’m in love with the tone-on-tone effect on this card.

She only used Layers 3 and 4 from the layered die set yet her butterfly looks absolutely stunning! The gold heat embossed sentiment was from Magical Christmas Sentiments. I love the matching gold sequins as the finishing touch!

Julie made a charming anniversary card while also pairing this cover die with the Butterfly Emergence 2 in 1 Layered Dies. She used all of the 4 layers in the layered die set to create her delightful butterflies. The layering details on these are so amazing!

I love her mini belly band design on where she added a French sentiment which I find truly unique!

Karen created a white on white background with this cover die which gave her card a light and graceful feel! She trimmed down her panel to create a frame for her card. She then added a butterfly silhouette using just Layer 1 from Butterfly Emergence 2 in 1 Layered Dies. The simple sentiment is also from the Magical Christmas Sentiments.

I love how she added a line of gems to accentuates the butterfly silhouette and the pop of colors against the pure white background!
