Butterfly Thanks

Happy Thursday!

I’m sharing a glittery card today using the Thank You Craft Stamp from Simply Stamps. I used Nuvo Glitter drops to cover my paper for the butterflies so no loose glitter mess (in my world that’s a great thing!).

Butterfly Thanks Jeanne_Streiff

I started by making my card. I used (excuse my well loved jar of paint) acrylic craft paint to make a smudgy area on my card. You can use a brush for this – I used my finger.

Next I stamped my Thank You phrase with black ink.

This is the paper I used for my butterfly die cuts (Impression Obsession). I took a heavy piece of white cardstock and smudged some pink and purple ink randomly over the card. Then I used Nuvo (clear) Glitter Drops directly over the ink. I used a scrap of cardstock to smooth the glitter drops over the panel (like a pallet knife) so I didn’t have any clean up. Let dry completely before die cutting.

Here are my butterfly die cuts. Because they have the added glitter glue layer they are pretty sturdy and moldable. I used my fingers and curled the wings for a little added dimension.

Here is a closer look at my finished card.

Have a great day!
