Hello and welcome! I'm happy to be here today sharing a birthday design using a few of the new release items such as the new Small Butterflies hot foil plate and the beautiful new Hydrangea and Rose washi tape. I had stenciled a bunch of butterflies to use on a project for the release, but they ended up being WAY too bright for the project I planned. I was thrilled to find that by using the hot foil plate with vellum, it was the perfect overlay for these stenciled butterflies. It toned them down just enough for this soft birthday design!
To begin this card, I used the Layered Sunburst Stencil set to create the soft background using Sparkling Rose, Soft Lilac, and Raspberry Bliss inks. I used the Essentials: Stitched Rectangles to die cut the edges for a finished look. I set that aside and got to work on the other design elements. As I mentioned earlier, I had already stenciled the butterflies, so all I needed to do was add the hot foiled vellum overlays! I used clear liquid glue to secure them in the center.
I die cut the gold circles using specialty gold cardstock and the Essentials: Stitched Scalloped Circles and then added them to the stenciled background using mini foam squares. I added the beautiful flowers from the Hydrangea and Rose washi tape and then let the butterflies float here and there for an organic feeling!
I used the Perfect Sentiments hot foil plate for the sentiment. I used gold foil so that it would match both the hot foiling on the butterflies and the gold on the washi tape. I added a few gems here and there for additional detail and shine! Thanks for fluttering by!
