A Way With Words Cardmaking Craft Drops Silk Microfine Glitter

Butterfly Wings

August 22, 2020

IMG_0873Hi Friends!  It’s EK, and I am popping in today to share a new card I crafted using some long neglected crafting supplies and A Way with Words Butterfly Flourish.  I just love how elegant the flourishes of this die set make creating something special so simple.

IMG_0859Step One:  On a crafting mat or glass, drop three similar liquid watercolors.  I used Dr. Ph Martins Hydrus (just unearthed from my moving boxes) in two shades of red and one dark pink.

IMG_0860Step Two:  Spray the liquid watercolor with plenty of water.

IMG_0861Step Three:  Dip a piece of Watercolor Paper into the liquid watercolor and completely saturated with color.  I was able to get three dips out of the puddle.

IMG_0862Step Four:  Heat set the watercolor paper.  Then spray with a iridescent watercolor spray.  I used Perfect Pearls Mists.

IMG_0863Step Five:  Die cut the watercolor paper using the Butterfly Flourish die set.  I used just the large flourish once and the small flourish twice for this step.

IMG_0864Step Six:  Add a piece of Clear Double Sided Adhesive to the watercolor paper.  Die cut the detailed butterfly from the Butterfly Flourish die set.

IMG_0865Step Seven:  Peel off the backing paper to the Clear Double Sided Adhesive and add Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter to the detailed butterfly.

IMG_0866Step Eight:  On a second piece of watercolor paper, die cut a frame using both the Stitched Indented Rectangle die set and Fitted Indented Rectangle die set.

IMG_0867Step Nine:  Using 10mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive, adhere the die cut frame to an A2 card frame.  Using a combination of 10mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive and Kids Choice Glue, add the flourished butterfly.  Using Kids Kids Choice Glue add the glittered butterfly to the flourished butterfly.

IMG_0869Step Ten:  Add a sentiment using the Love & Hearts Collection stamp set and two tones of ink.  I used both Picked Raspberry and Festive Berries Distress Oxide.

IMG_0870Step Eleven:  Adhere the two smaller butterfly flourishes.  Add three drops of Pearl Rose Craft Drops and three drops of Transparent Crystal Craft Drops.

IMG_0874I love how this is a surprising simple this card was to create but how elegant it looks.
