Trio of Butterflies

April 8, 2018

Jennifer McGuire did a video on Z fold cards a few weeks ago and I knew I had to try one. I used the Simon Says Stamp April 2018 Card Kit and some patterned paper I got from my local Joann’s to make this card.  I colored the butterflies with Prismacolor pencils and really love the results I got.

Inside of the Card

Details

Size:  Z fold A2 card

Extra Details: I began this card by stamping and coloring the butterflies on a scrap of white card stock. Once I was done coloring, I fussy cut all of the butterflies out.

I created the card base from some 12 x 12 white cardstock. It was a very light weight card stock, so I don’t think I will be using it again. I added strips of the marble patterned paper to the outside flaps. I used a scalloped edge die to add interest to the front panels.

I added a panel of white cardstock to the inside of the card to stiffen up the card base.  I stamped the sentiment and added a butterfly to this panel.

I adhered the butterflies to the front panels having them overlap the seam. Lastly, I added a small black rectangle to the middle butterfly. I white heat embossed the sentiment on the black rectangle.
