Hello! Quick post today just to share a card that I created using a pretty Spellbinders die set that features a large butterfly. I always have liked to use butterflies as the focal point for cards. They are so much fun!

This die set in particular is fun because it helps assemble and create an interactive butterfly. You can make the butterfly pop-up when you open the card or you can simply use it as a regular die.
The butterfly of my card has three layers. The first one was die cut from white card stock and then I applied color using a sponge dauber and a couple of ink colors. I also sprinkled some sparkle silk over it. The second layer was die cut from black cardstock and adhered to the colored layer with craft glue. The third layer is the body of the butterfly and it was die cut from brushed silver cardstock.
The backgrounds of this card is very simple. I used a sponge dauber and ink directly from the ink pad to create it. I like that you can see a bit of the cardstock texture on the card. A sentiment and a few silver sequins were the final touches for this card.
Below you can watch a video of how I did a similar background using liquid colors.
I want to point out that the Spellbinders store has different choices of butterflies stamps and dies to choose from, so please don’t forget to visit the SB store. This is the current sale…
Well, that’s all from me today. I´ll be back soon to share another project. Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful rest of the week!
