Butterfly Bling Card #GDP083

Good Morning, Stampers!   Today’s project is brought to you by…me!  Hahaha!
I think the coffee is kicking in!  Anyway, today I have a Butterfly Bling Card to
share, it’s for this week’s Global Design Project challenge.

Butterfly Bling Card #GDP083

You probably know by now that I love my stash, and I keep a box of paper
scraps right next to my work table.  Can you guess where this is going?

Yep! A big part of today’s project is from the stash, and the scrap box!
This section was torn off a larger embossed piece, but when I started
looking at it, I noticed those antennae, and thought hmm…I could make
them work for me, so I outlined them in Basic Black ink.

I used them as a background layer, and ta-da… I have antennae for this butterfly!

Be sure to check out all the designs over at the GDP !  There are always
some great ideas and inspiration there!  Just click on the globe above and

Now, more butterfly stuff.

Did you notice?  This butterfly has three layers!

All three layers came from the “stash”. The base is made from Gold Foil Sheets
using the Bold Butterfly Framelits, the middle is cut out in Basic Black using the
Butterflies Thinlets Dies, and the top layer (Bold Butterfly Framelits) is Fabulous
Foil Designer Acetate, it’s gold on one side, and silver on the reverse, twice the fun!
There are glue dots down the center under the rhinestones to hold the piece together,
the wings are free floating, but the acetate does not bend well, so the layers are not
as noticeable as I would have liked.  Maybe scoring the acetate first would help?
Always learning.

After adding the layers to the card base, the background really disappeared, normally
that would be okay, but I wanted a hint of these little guys to show up, so I used a
Sponge Dauber, with some Crumb Cake ink and carefully tried to add a bit of color
to the background after it was all put together. I think it helps give the antennae a
better place to live, don’t you?

I also added a few sprigs of greenery for a finishing touch, I found these little cuties
in the Jar Of Love stamp set!  Who knew?

Have A Fabulous Day!

Oh, I almost forgot, the Very Vanilla used for the base is thick card stock!
It will be available in the new catty…Yippee!  Since it’s not available to the
public yet, it’s not included in the supply list below.
