Butterfly Note Card for The Paper Players

Butterflies have long been a harbinger of spring. While the Spring Equinox is on March 20th this year, I don’t expect butterflies to be making their appearance any time soon here in SE Iowa.  However, I can deliver a breath of spring to someone’s mailbox with this Butterfly Note Card.  It’s Sunday, and time to play with The Paper Players!

This week I have the honor of hosting our monthly sketch challenge. What I have selected for you is a sketch that hopefully “layer lovers” and “clean and simple aficionados” will both love.  Dress it up with layers and embellishments, or keep it on the simpler side. The choice is yours! We can’t wait to see what YOU create!

Butterfly Note Card

The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips

Sometimes all you need is a gorgeous die cut, a simple sentiment, and a fussy cut butterfly to make a card come to life.

The stunningly ornate die is from the Flowering Vines collection.  For added dimension, I adhered Butterfly Bijou paper, available March 2nd, to a foam adhesive sheet before die cutting it out.  The fussy cut butterfly also comes from this same designer paper collection.  The wonderful thing about this card is that you can change out the sentiment for almost any occasion…birthday, thank you, wedding, anniversary, get well, thinking of you and more!
