Today’s my last day before I go up to Telford for the Stampin’ Up! OnStage Convention on Saturday. I have organised a Craft Day on the day before for my team members who are going to the Convention. Unfortunately, three members have had to cancel for various reasons. Stampin’ Up! will allow me to collect the goodies they would have rreceived had they been able to go. Although nothing compensates for the disappointment of not being able to go, I think it helps a little bit!!
Today’s fabulous card is amazingly quick and easy to make! It’s called a Butterfly Closure Card, because the butterfly is adhered to the layer inside the card, and threads through the slot on the front of the card! I think the idea wouldmake a great wedding card, especially with the Sparkle Glimmer Podwer and Whisper White Cardstock. Instead of using a patterned DSP, this part of the card could be dry embossed.
The first card I made was the one with Pink Glimmer Paper and the large HAPPY BIRTHDAY sentiment. I learned that the butterfly should be higher up, so it doesn’t obscure the sentiment. The second card was also with Pink Glimmer Paper, but with the smaller HAPPY BIRTHDAY sentiment. Then I decided to try it with the Sparkle Glimmer Paper- these were my favourites! I have listed both the sentiment die sets in the list of products in the box under the video.
Instead of using the butterfly for the closure, you could use the dragonfly from the Detailed Dragonflies Thinlits Dies. This style of card would make a fabulous Christmas card if there was an Angel Framelits Die. Once I’d thought about this, my mind went into overdrive! There’s no reason why the “butterfly” couldn’t be a flower! The possibilities are endless!
That’s about it from me today. I hope you enjoy today’s project as much as I enjoyed making it. I look forward to being back with you tomorrow, and in the meantime, happy crafting.
