Looking for a nifty note card, complete with a trio of butterflies? Look no more! I’ll be giving you the step-by-step “how-to’s” in today’s On the CASE! While I continue to break down samples from current Stampin’ Up!® catalogs, my On the CASE partner, Nicole, is using her investigative skills to solve CASES throughout the crafting universe. Let the fun begin!
Today I am CASEing a note card from the Occasions Catalog. It features the Butterfly Gala bundle. Enjoy!
Butterfly Note Card
Occasions Catalog – Front Cover
I have never denied my love for the Lace Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I especially love enhancing the pattern by adding ink…and that is exactly what drew my eyes to this cover card. I loved how the Whisper White ink made the lacy pattern stand out. I also liked the versatility of this card. It would be suitable for so many different occasions simply by switching out the sentiment. I know I will be creating several of these in different colors, with birthday and thank you sentiments, for future use.

“On the CASE” Notes
Your Step-by-Step Guide
1. Score the larger piece of Balmy Blue card stock at 4-1/4″ to form the card base. Fold and crease using a bone folder.
2. Emboss the 5″ x 3-3/4″ piece of Balmy Blue with the Lace Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Using a Sponge Dauber, enhance the raised areas with Whisper White ink. Adhere to the card base with dimensionals.
3. Punch a starburst from Vellum cardstock.
4. Loop 16″ of ribbon across the front of the card, holding in place with glue dots. Adhere the starburst on top of the ribbon.
5. Ink the Butterfly image with Balmy Blue and stamp onto Whisper White cardstock. Create a second small butterfly. Punch out with the Butterfly Duet punch. Using a sponge dauber, color the larger butterfly Grapefruit Grove, and the smaller butterflies Daffodil Delight. Stamp the bodies in Night of Navy.
