Try Stamping on Tuesday 391

January 21, 2019

Today’s card is created using the sketch challenge at Try Stamping on Tuesday.  The great thing about these challenges is that you have a couple of weeks to complete your project before the challenge ends.   So today’s card is pretty clean and simple, but I think, kind of elegant.  I love black and white!  I attached a piece of Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper across Whisper White card.  I attached pieces of Whisper White on either side each of which has a narrow edge of Basic Black to cover the edges of the Designer Series Paper.  The whole panel is attached to scored and folded Basic Black card.   I stamped “Hello Beautiful” from the Butterfly Gala stamp set onto Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink I cut out the greeting using one of the Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies and attached it to Basic Black card cut using the same dies.  The greeting is attached to the card front using dimensionals.  I cut the solid butterfly die from the Butterfly Beauty Thinlits Dies from Basic Black card.  I cut the detailed overlay butterfly die from the same die set from Grapefruit Grove card.  I did attach a piece of Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet to the back of the he Basic Black card and the Grapefruit Grove card before they were die cut.  I removed the adhesive sheet backing and attached the Grapefruit Grove butterflies to the Basic Black butterflies, then I set about cutting the butterflies apart.  This creates five separate butterflies and you really don’t have to do a lot of trimming.  I removed the adhesive backing from one of the butterflies and attached it to the greeting panel.

To decorate the inside of the card, I attached another of the butterflies to the top left hand corner of Whisper White card.

You know what, I think I am in love with the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper. It really is very pretty and you can obtain this paper free with a qualifying order during Sale-A-Bration.   Most of the patterns contain butterflies but there are three of the black and white designs which do not and could be used for so many different kinds of card.

I do have some butterflies left, so I will be back with more butterfly cards.

Bye for now,

    A very elegant card and a great use of both of our prompts for the challenge – I love that touch of black behind the butterfly which really makes it pop. thanks for joining us at TSOT!

    Kris, what a clever way to meet BOTH parts of our challenge at TSOT!!! Your use of the triangular white cardstock to frame the DSP creates the perfect diagonal, and of course your mixed fonts are just what we were hoping for! Thank you for sharing your creativity with us at Try Stampin’ on Tuesday!! -Donna
