A card featuring the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper was a design in the All About Butterflies class.  The paper is in the current Sale-A-Bration brochure and you can select it for FREE with a $50 purchase.  This is one of my favorite papers.  Best of all, several of the butterfly designs coordinate with the Butterfly Duet Punch, therefore, no fussy cutting.  Since the Designer Series Paper (DSP) is a double-sided design, options for color combinations is endless.

First, I want to share the inspiration card.  The 4″ x 4″ card was received from Patty Bennett.  The combination of papers adds to the beauty of the card.  You will notice that the only stamping is the sentiment.  Since the technique is primarily paper layering, it is a simple design.  Using her design layout, I made a standard 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ card to use for one of the class projects.

Now for the class card:

Card Featuring Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper

Notice how well the Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper coordinates with the black and white design on the Botanical Butterfly DSP.  As you compare the designs, note the slight variations such as the different ribbon and no embossing on the vellum.  However, the layout design is the same.  Details for creating the class card are below.

Card Directions:

Cut cardstock and paper as follows:

  • Thick Whisper White cardstock: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″

  3. Adhere the Gingham Gala DSP to the Daffodil Delight cardstock.  Center and attach the 1″ x 4″ strip of the Botanical Butterfly DSP to the Gingham Gala DSP layer. With the 2-1/4″ circle punch, cut the vellum cardstock.  Attach to circle the center of the yellow layer piece.
  4. Wrap Daffodil Delight Ribbon around the yellow layer piece and tie a side knot.  Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to attach to the card.  Notice the ribbon this card, it is from the Organdy Ribbon Combo Pack in the Sale-a-Bration brochure and is another FREE item with qualifying purchase.  Due to it’s popularity, it has sold out.  It is on reorder and will be available again in early March and only while supplies last.
