Butterfly Cards by Anita Bownds

Saturday, July 18, 2020

Hi there crafty friends, Anita Bownds here with you sharing a couple of cute butterfly cards using the Bloom Street collection and one of Paige’s beautiful Butterfly cut files. They are so simple to make and perfect for a hello card or to say thank you. They would put a smile on anyone’s face!
Using my Cameo I cut out two of the Butterflies from white cardstock at a blade depth of 3, pressure 23, and speed 4, as I wanted the intricate lines to cut cleanly. For my first card I used pops of yellow, pink, and purple. From the 12x12 Paper Pad I selected a beautiful patterned paper with yellow, pink, and mint and backed one of the butterflies.
I then chose a paper from the 12x12 Paper Pad to decorate my card starting with the card base then I cut a border strip for the center of the card and layered another contrasting color behind with a scalloped edge that I created with deco scissors. I machine stitched each edge then I adhered a doily behind the border and glued it all down adding a Floral Die Cut in the middle of the butterfly.
For the second card I used the same steps to make the card but changed the colors using more greens, blues, and purples. I also added a flick of white acrylic paint to create more contrast.
I hope you have enjoyed my card inspiration today and happy crafting!
