I’ve been pretty busy (working on a really fun card for this weekends post 🤗) so I decided to post a card I made a while back (2014 😳). This is a back to basics kind of card with a little technique thrown in. If you look close I highlighted different spots on the butterflies with different colours of glitter. I found a way to colour my clearish Dazzling Diamonds glitter to match what ever colour of ink I was using. There wasn’t as many fun colours back then and even now sometimes it’s hard to find that exact match
Because this card was made a while back I don’t have photos of the whole process, but I will do the best I can.
All the supplies are from Stampin Up as I was a Stampin Up demo at the time.
The Basic Black back panel is 5 1/2” x 4 1/4”, the black strip across the front is 2 1/8” x 5 3/8”. The Whisper White cardstock base is 8 3/8” x 5 3/8” folded in half. I wouldn’t get too hung up on the itty bitty measurements. The White card base should 1/16” shorter than black back panel on all four sides. The black strip across the front should be 1/16” shorter than the white card on the sides.
The little white squares are around 1 1/2” x 1 1/2” I stamped the butterflies with black ink on all 3 squares, stamping them each in a little bit of a different location on the square.
I was actually able to find my original directions so I thought I would share 😀. This is how I coloured my Dazzling Diamonds glitter ✨
I sponged the edges of the butterfly stamped squares with three different colours, Bermuda Bay, Melon Mambo, and Elegant Eggplant. Used a liquid glue to add dots to some of the flower centres in the pattern on the butterflies then added the coloured glitter to match.
