Oh my goodness you guys! I’ve been so excited to share this Bloomin’ Heart Butterfly card with you… and I’ve even got a VIDEO TUTORIAL for it too! I almost forgot how much I love doing videos. Now to take some time this afternoon to try to record some more!
But in the meantime, can we talk about how pretty this butterfly is…and the secret is to make it using the new Bloomin’ Heart thinlit die!
I first saw the idea to cut out a butterfly from the Bloomin’ Heart die by fellow demo Kirsteen Gill and I knew I just had to try it for myself. I tried repeating what I saw her do – tone on tone heart diecut over the butterfly, but decided I wanted to make some changes to brighten it up a bit. And I just LOVE how it turned out.
From Heart to Butterfly in one Quick Step
The secret to this card is that you can fit the outline butterfly from the Bold Butterflies thinlits over the Bloomin’ Heart die cut. So, you can just exactly cut out this pretty lacy butterfly. So, die cut heart… to butterfly… done!
I wanted to really show off that floral pattern though, so I layered it over a contrasting color (Crumb Cake) butterfly and then stepped it up even more by adding some flowers cut out of the Blushing Bride glimmer paper. Don’t they look so pretty behind the Very Vanilla pattern?
Once I had my butterfly, I put together the rest of the card using some of the rest of the Love Blossoms Suite
- Add an extra pop of color by adding some patterned paper from the Love Blossoms designer paper
- Sponge the edges of the cardstock and designer paper using Crumb Cake ink to make it more vintage
- Stamp a sweet sentiment from the Bloomin’ Love stamp set! I figured “love, its in the air” went well with the butterfly theme
- Keep the shimmer going, add some Clear Wink of Stella to the heart for the perfect final touch. Can you really go wrong with Wink of Stella? No… I didn’t think so.
