Create a Beautiful Lavender Butterfly Card

Hello everyone! If you know or follow me, maybe you know that I always say that stencils are my endless love. Today, I am sharing with you a greeting card created with a dimensional stencil. When I say dimensional, I am referring to stencils that you can move or rotate to create special effects. On this card, I am using the Weave Builder Stencil from Altenew with two different colors of Memento Ink: Lulu Lavender, and Grape Jelly.

Skill: Intermediate
Time: 30 minutes + dry time

Directions

 
Step 1

Take a piece of whisper white cardstock and secure your stencil with masking tape. Select two colors of Memento Ink that are light and dark. I suggest using similar colors if you want to create a “progressive effect” for example two purples or two greens. Start applying the dark color (Memento Grape Jelly) with a jumbo dauber. Rotate your stencil 180 degrees and line up the pattern. Now ink with the lighter color of ink (Memento Lulu Lavender).


Step 2

Resize the stenciled layer and paste directly over the mat and card base. Using Vellum cardstock, cut the butterfly design. In my model, I used two different layers, the A and D, from the Sparkler Butterfly Stackable Dies. Create loops using linen thread and paste over the card using glue dots. Paste the vellum butterfly over the thread and decorate on the center with an irRESISTible drop in Grape Jelly. Finish the card by adding a stamped sentiment. In my model, I used one sentiment included on the stamp set Life’s Breeze from Joy Clair Stamps.
