Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance Birthday Shines Again

It’s interesting how we get on a roll of using a particular stamp set and sometimes it’s hard to do something else 🙂 That’s the case with the Butterfly Brilliance bundle ~ it’s hard to stop playing with it… Today’s card was inspired by one I posted a few days ago. My key colors were So Saffron, Smoky Slate & Basic White – and layers.

Butterfly Brilliance Birthday.1

This card really pops for me; I really appreciate the contrast. The Butterfly Brilliance is stamped full strength in Smoky Slate ink on a Basic White panel. The swallowtail is stamped in Memento Black ink on another piece of Basic Whtie, colored with So Saffron Blends and dark Smoky Slate Blends, die cut with the Brillinat Wings Dies, put on dimensionals and added to the card front panel. I adhered this with liquid glue to a Smoky Slate piece slightly larger, wrapped Bumblebee Gingham ribbon around and tacked it in place with Seal+, then added this to a So Saffron Card base with liquid glue. I stamped the sentiment in Memento ink on a Basic White scrap using the Best Year stamp set then punched it out with the Timeless Label Punch. I punched another from So Saffron card stock and added it to the sentiment banner with dimensionals. I put this in place over the ribbon with liquid glue. I added three Genial Gems for a bit of bling ~ and the card front was complete.

For the inside, I stamped the Swallowtail in an upside down position in stamped off Memento ink (Butterfly Brilliance stamp set) then stamped the sentiment in full strength Memento ink from the Best Year stamp set. I love these fonts! I adhered the Basic White panel to a slightly larger Smoky Slatge with liquid glue then to the inside of the card base. Voila!

For the envelope I added Subtles 6×6 DSP in So Saffron to the envelope flap with liquid glue and trimmed to fit. I stamped one of the smaller butterflies from the Butterfly Brilliance stamp set in Smoky Slate both on the envelope flap and on the front of the envelope. Done, Done! Love this card – so soft and gorgeous – and as I said, these fonts are wonderful. Card cuts are listed at the bottom of this post.
