Oh pretty petite Butterfly….

Happy Sunday Crafters! What are you all doing today?? I will mostly be crafting…. :) of course…. hehehe
Today im sharing a card for the Challange over at Less is more.. which this week is ….

Have a look at my card….
Ive made this card by die cutting a frame from a post-it note using my Stampin Up Labels Collection Framelits, as you can see from the pic below i then masked off more of my card as the frame only just fitted within my post-it note
This card involves alot of masking but is worth it im sure youll agree… it easy to mask as i just punched lots of Bitty Butterflys with my SU punch which fits the small Papillion Potpourri Butterfly perfectly…
I stamped the first butterfly randomly around my frame … then masked them off, my butterflies in between are stamped using 2nd generation stamping, stamping off the ink first on scrap paper then stamping on the page…
Then repeating until happy… masking off as required
And heres the finished ‘frame’
I also slightly ink my edges to give the frame definition… I then cut another label using my Framelit.. and then overlayed it on my stamped area to line up… then trimmed it up to size
i also added paper piercing to the edge of the frame…
heres what i used:
Stamps – Papillion Potpourri and Petite Pairs
Cardstock – Naturals Ivory and Rich Razzleberry
Ink – Rich Razzleberry
Punch – Bitty Butterfly and Scallop Trim Border
Labels Collection Framelits and Festive paper Piercing Pack (still available in current Spring and Summer Catalogue)…

  3. Hi, Laura - what a wonderful idea in creating that flock of butterflies (or is it a mass, or do they call it something else?) These are lovely, especially in using more than one shade of the pink. A marvelous idea in the frame, too - not the typical shape at all. Such a pretty card! hugs, de

  4. Lots of great stamping on this, it looks fab!
    Thanks so much
