Heartfelt Creations Design Team Call Part 3 ~ Butterfly In Flight

Hi Friends,

Today's card features the beautiful Floral Butterfly Collection by Heartfelt Creations. I went out on my own and chose the color scheme of blues and yellows with the hint of green. I paired this collection with the Climbing Clematis flowers for a beautiful springtime vibe.

This card measures 5x7" and is so full of vibrant splendor!

Isn't the added butterflies body adorable? I just love how that added touch makes him come to life.


Cut card base from Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper 7x10" and score in half.

From the Floral Butterfly Paper cut a piece of 5x7" green paper and lightly ink around the edges with Archival ink in Leaf Green. Attach to card front.

From both Deluxe Flower Making Paper and Luxe Silver Card Stock cut 1 each from the Fancy Flourish Border Die using all 3 dies taped together. Cut a piece of yellow card stock measuring 1/2"x61/2" from the Floral Butterfly Collection paper pad and glue to the back side of the lattice strip section of the white die cut. Glue the Luxe Silver die onto the back making sure to offset it a little so that the silver shows just a little on both the left and right sides. This allows for the center to fit together nicely. Attach to card front using glue dots for added dimension.

Using your Large Floral Butterfly stamp and die set. Cut the base from a light blue piece of paper from the Floral Butterfly paper pack. Stamp the Floral Butterfly stamp in Cobalt Blue Archival ink onto Deluxe Flower Shaping paper and die cut using the coordinating die. Ink around the edge using Night Sky Archival Ink. Die cut both a Luxe Silver and a white detailed butterfly layer from the Large Floral Die set. Lastly stamp just the body of the butterfly onto a scrap piece of the Deluxe Flower Shaping paper and fussy cut out and ink around the edges using Night Sky Archival Ink. Next layer in the following order; Blue base with stamped image fully glued on; White and Silver layers glued together with silver offset behind, glued just in the center. Lastly the body of the butterfly affixed on top. Glue this fully layered butterfly at an angle onto your card front.

Using the Floral Butterfly Accents Stamp and Die set stamp out the floral spray in Olive Archival Ink onto Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper and die cut. Color with light and dark blue Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. Using the Large and Medium Climbing Clematis Stamps and dies, stamp in Night Sky and Color in Sky Blue Archival Inks, die cut, and shape using the 3D Shaping Mold. For the large clematis use two layers of petals and for the medium just use one. Add Rock Candy Stamens to the centers and finish with Rajni's Chawla's Crystal Clear glitter. Stamp small Climbing Clematis in Sunflower and color using Chrome Yellow Archival inks. Die cut and shape with the 3D shaping Mold. Add Go Mango Prills to the center. Finish them off with a little Art Glitter in Crystal. Lastly the leaves are stamped and colored in Leaf Green Archival ink and also come from the Climbing Clematis Collection.

 To finish your card simply arrange your floral arrangement to the top of your butterfly.
