Fluttering Bye To Say ‘Happy Birthday’!!

March 29, 2014


Hi Everyone, It’s Jackie from snowy Alberta once again. I’m getting real tired of all this snow, it’s suppose to be spring! Anyways I’m back with a spring like birthday card featuring Karen Burniston Butterfly Pivot Card. I cut out the butterfly pivot card using Early Espresso paper for the base and Bo Bunny’s ‘Primrose’ collection for the rest. For the front of the card, I cut out the “Happy Birthday” using a piece of Elizabeth Crafts Designs Black Velvet Adhesive sheet. I cut out the 3 silhouette  butterflies using one of the decorator dies included in the Butterfly Pivot Card die set. I cut one butterfly out of double sided adhesive and applied Silk Microfine Glitter “Leaf Green” to it. I then die cut the overlay using the overlay die from the same set out of black velvet adhesive. I applied the overlay on top of the green glitter butterfly. I also cut out 3 butterfly bodies. I used a background technique that I found here for the other 2 butterflies.



DSC_0289-1For the other butterfly on the right I used the same technique but changed the colour of the glitter to Fuchsia. The other butterflies were cut out of the Bo Bunny paper called “Primerose Bliss” and again I cut out the butterfly using the black velvet adhesive. I cut 2 trips out of the background paper that I used for the butterflies on the front of the card and embossed these using the Butterflies folder by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs. I then sponged on some Victorian Velvet Distress ink to highlight the embossed areas.


DSC_0293-1For the tag on the right hand side I used a sticker by Bo Bunny Primrose collection and cut it out using Elizabeth Craft Designs die called “Tags”.
DSC_0278-1For the left hand tag I stamped the saying from stamp collection called ‘Occasional Quotes’ by Stampin ‘Up using black crafters ink and embossed using clear embossing powder. Again I cut it out using the Elizabeth Craft Designs die called “Tags”. I added some pink/brown satin ribbon by May Arts.
