Butterfly Basics Variations
I’m loving the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Basics stamp set. The two cards above were cased from the card below that I received in a 2015 Leadership swap (sorry I don’t know who it’s from, but if you do, let me know). I simply added a Mother’s Day greeting to it.
For the first card above I die cut the butterfly with the Butterfly Thinlit die from a piece of striped dsp that I really didn’t like much at all (Autumn Traditions in the Stampin’ Up! 2009-2010 catalog). First row, second image below.
Because the die cuts so many holes, it really broke up the striped pattern. I kinda like the way that the butterfly’s body is mostly pinkish and the wings are multi-colored. The ink is Perfect Plum, Crumb Cake and Sahara Sand with splotches of Blushing Bride. Above the Perfect Plum stripe is a piece of Epic Day washi tape with a bow tied with linen thread.
