This is the last Butterfly Brilliance Bundle project from the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Meeting. The talented Mary Deatherage of Stamps-in-Lingers shared this sweet gift tag with us to all stamp together. I incorporated it into this Thank You card as a Bookmark. You will find instructions and all the links for the supplies I used below.
The Paper Cuts
- Thick Basic White Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 11″scored at 5 1/2″ (card base), 2″ x 4″ (tag), and a Tasteful Labels die cut.
- Butterfly Bijou Designer Series Paper : 4″ x 5 1/4″ (background) and two die cut butterflies (blue and yellow).
- Vellum Cardstock: detailed Brilliant Wings die cut (same size as the blue butterfly)
- First, I cut the top of the strip of Basic White Thick Cardstock with the Delightful Tag Topper Punch. Then I stamped the wildflower image from Dragonfly Garden Stamp Set in second generation Just Jade Ink near the bottom. I added the sentiment from So Sentimental Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight Ink over the top.
- Use the large multi-butterfly die from Butterly Brilliance Dies to cut the butterflies from the Butterfly Bijou Designer Series Paper. You’ll only need two so save the others for another project. 🙂 Add Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the body of the Vellum Cardstock die cut butterfly and adhere it to the blue die cut butterfly body. Adhere the pair to the top of the tag/bookmark. Apply silver Metallic Pearls down the center of the body. So pretty!
- Pull a length of the Misty Moonlight Ribbon through the hole in the top of the tag. Use a piece of Linen Thread to tie around the base.
- I placed the butterfly tag/bookmark onto the left side of the 4″ x 5 1/4″ DSP. (Be sure to have it high enough that you can get your adhesive along the edge below it). I placed a ruler horizontally underneath the blue butterfly and used a pencil to mark the left and right as a guide to cut a slit with the Paper Trimmer (or an exact knife, if you prefer) so that only the butterfly would peak out. I applied Stampin’ Seal along the back edges of the DSP and adhered it to the card base. Then I slid the butterfly bookmark/tag into the slit. Voila!
- In Misty Moonlight Ink I stamped “the little things…” sentiment from Happy Thoughts Stamp Set on the Tasteful Labels die cut. I used Tuxedo Black Ink (but wish I’d used Just Jade, you may want to modify) on the inside panel. to stamp “Thank You”. I stamped a second generation Misty Moonlight Butterfly and a second generation Magenta Madness Butterfly on the inside panel. I echoed these in first generation on the envelope front and flap.
- I adhered the stamped label to the bottom of the card front and popped on a small yellow butterfly with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
