Yogi here today and was in a mood to use butterflies...
I'm using a bunch of dies and a stencil from Suzanne and Elizabeth Craft Designs. Suzanne came out with a bunch of stencils and I'm using the "Butterflies/Stars Spray Stencil" (on Quietfire Design HERE). Then I'm using a couple and a part of A Way With Words dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs "Friends", "Special Moments" 2pce die set, and "R from Remember" also available on Quietfire Design HERE, HERE and HERE
And using a couple sentiment stamps from Quietfire Design, as well as a design element butterfly
("I Don't Tell You Often Enough..." 5pce set); ("Let Them Eat Cupcakes/Happy Birthday" 4pce set); ("Butterflies/Dragonflies" 7pce set)
Scored and folded my minty Bazzill Monochromatic cardstock to create the side easel, cutting another piece the same size as card for the front.
I started with 12 x 12" cardstock. Cut the cardstock to 5" x 12". Scored vertically at the 7" point leaving a 5" end piece which I scored diagonally to create the fold for the side easel. see diagram above.
Stenciled the spray of butterflies using various colors of Distress pads.
Adhered a piece of yellow floral ribbon.
Die cut the large butterfly (Sizzix Bigz Butterfly/embossing combo) from a scrap piece of decorated cardstock. Ran through with the embossing die, then hit the high points with Versamark and embossed with "Queen's Gold" embossing powder. Adhered to card front.
Die cut the various words "Friends", "Special", and "Remember" from white cardstock. Trimmed around the letter R from remember. Inked the words with a brown stamp pad and embossed with Emerald Creek "Oil Rubbed Bronze" embossing powder. Adhered words to front.
On the floor: Adhered a strip of pearl ribbon to act as my stopper.
Stamped the sentiments onto a scrap piece of the minty green cardstock using Versafine "Vintage Sepia" and clear embossed. Trimmed the piece down, rounded the corners with a corner rounder punch, inked the edges with a dark brown Distress pad sponged some of the brown around the edges and adhered to floor with 3D foam tape.
Stamped the butterflies using another piece of scrap decorated watercolor paper. The large one embossed with Pearlescent embossing powder. The smaller butterflies using white embossing powder. Fussy cut around the images and adhered to floor.
Final touch, added pink/mauve/green mini rhinestones to the bodies.
