Butterfly Flourish

February 27, 2021

Hey Friends, it’s EK. There is nothing I love more when die cutting when I can make two cards with one cut. I adore when you can use both the positive and negative of the die cut to create two coordinating and yet seperate cards. I think they make great little gifts. Today I am creating two cards using Suzanne’s Butterfly Flourish die set.

Step One: Trim a piece of 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock to 4.25×5.5 inches. Blend ink onto the cardstock. I used Dusty Concord, Victorian Velvet and Tattered Rose Distress Inks.

Step Two: Die cut the cardstock using the large and small butterfly from the Butterfly Flourish die set. Save all the die cut pieces.

Step Three: Die cut the cardstock again using the Stitched Indented Rectangle die set. Save the boarder die cut.

Step Four: Using 10mm and 6mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive adhere the negative die cut to an A2 card frame.

Step Five: Place the large positive butterfly die cut back into the frame. Using liquid adhesive, glue the excess die cut pieces back into the empty spaces. I used Kid’s Choice Glue.

Step Six: Carefully lift the positive die cut out of the adhered sections.

Step Seven: Using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive, adhere the extra piece of die cut from the frame onto the edges of a second A2 card frame. Using liquid adhesive, adhere the butterflies. Spray both cards with a clear shimmer craft spray. I used Sheer Shimmer Spray in Frost.

Step Eight: On both card frames stamp a sentiment from Suzanne’s Soar Collection stamp set in a coordinating ink color. I used Dusty Concord Distress Oxide.

Step Nine: Add White Craft Drops to both cards. Let Dry.

Here is the finished card using the positive butterfly die cut and the negative frame die cut.

Here is the card using the negative butterfly die cut and the positive frame die cut.

Let me know in the comments below which of the two cards is your favorite. Until then, happy crafting.
