Reason to Smile Butterfly Art Card

Reason To Smile Butterfly Art Card & Blog Candy!

Reason to Smile Butterfly Art Card The Beautiful Butterflies Die makes this Reason to Smile friend card extra, extra special.  In fact, I’m planning to make another and put it in this black 5″ x 5″ frame from Amazon.  Classic LINEAR in black by Malden - 5x5 The Christmas card on page 202 of Stampin’ Up! catalog inspired the layout for my card.

This card is so pretty in person, I want to send it to someone, so I’m offering the following blog candy!

butterfly art blog candy july 2012 This blog candy package includes the Reason to Smile Butterfly card, two spools of 10 yards each of 1/8′ ribbon and a package of 12 vintage tags.   To enter the drawing, leave a comment and tell me what you like about this friend card (so I can make sure it goes to a good home LOL).  The blog candy drawing will happen at noon on Tuesday, July 24th, so comment today!

Reason to Smile Butterfly Art Card I cut the Rich Razzleberry and First Edition butterflies with Beautiful Butterflies Bigz Die and the Big Shot Die-cutting Machine.  Because it’s a Bigz die it will cut through multiple layers, chipboard, fabrics, and lots more too!

I stamped the smaller butterfly with the small flower outline in Pacific Point ink.  I love the look of stamped pattern paper and the neutral First Edition Designer Series Paper is perfect for this technique.

After I cut the large Rich Razzleberry butterfly I ran it back through the Big Shot in the Fancy Fan Embossing Folder.   All that texture is fabulous!

Reason to Smile Butterfly Art Card For additional texture a row of pearls were added down the middle.  The vellum ‘Friend’ tag is from the Sweet Essentials stamp set punched with the Word Window Punch and snipped shorter to fit.  The tag was poped up on a tad bit of a dimensional.

The smallest Vintage Faceted Designer Button was used at the head with a double bow of linen thread and adhered to the top of the tag with a glue dot.  Curling the edges of the wings with my bone folder created a 3D butterfly ready for flight.

The raised, stamped Wild Wasabi frame in the background measures 4″ x 4″ with a 3″ x 3″ square cut from the middle popped up with dimensionals.

Reason to Smile Butterfly Art Card angle The Reason to Smile stamp set is only available until July 31st.  Have you checked your wish list lately?  So now is the time to send in that order and purchase this beautiful set for only $5 with a $50 product purchase.

reason to smile thank you card with butterfly

reason to smile thank you card detail

I created this card for a color challenge at Splitcoast Stampers.  The challenge was to use White, Olive and Navy.  I used the new Midnight Muse for the navy.   This great blue has become a go to color for me.  And a rhinestone in the middle of the butterfly is always the perfect touch.

reason to smile thank you card with embossed polka dots

To create this card I made a mask using the Labels Collection Framelit, then layered this on top of the Whisper White card stock and sponged the interior of the image.  Then I stamped the flowers first with Marina Mist for the fill in color and then with Midnight Muse for the flower outline.  After everything was stamped I removed the mask and ran the piece through the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine with the Perfect Polka Dots Folder.

Don’t forget to get the Reason to Smile stamp set today and enjoy these great floral images.
