Butterfly Cards by Jennifer Rambert

Monday, August 2, 2021

Hi paper lovers! Jennifer Rambert back today with two new colorful cards with cute butterflies for the Paige Evans Cut File design team with the Wonders collection and two Butterfly cut files. I really wanted colorful cards with lifelike butterflies so I chose these awesome butterflies 1 and 2.

I first used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the designs, three times for each of them, from watercolor paper. I glued a copy of each butterfly flat on the bottom. Then with several inks, I made a color gradient for each butterfly, each time starting with very dark purple.

I added another watercolor paper butterfly on top by gluing only the center so that it lifts and brings dimension, and finally I added the last butterfly on top by gluing only the center also after having achieved the same gradient with the same inks and after having embossed it with transparent powder to add shine.

I love the effect of movement created with these multiple butterfly layers and their color gradients are just what I wanted. I glued the background after distressing the edges on Paper 6 and Paper 21 to create square cards measuring approximately 5.5" and this also provides a frame which adds even more dimension. I then sewed the edges together with gold thread and added white acrylic paint and gold paint splatters to match it all up.

I finished by adding Banner Stickers to each card and they were perfect to complement the decoration of these cards.

Hope this inspires you this week! I had fun doing them and especially making the gradients that I like to do! Thanks for stopping by and have a great creative week!
