Butterfly drama

  • Bold Black and White Butterfly
  • Register now for Hello Lovely Project Life class

Black Butterfly drama

I did a very quick card  today.  It looks striking in real life, but the black on black doesn't photograph very well. think it looks very striking.  I've always loved black and white cards.  They can be very simple yet they can be quite elegant.   

The basecard is Thick Whisper White, then a layer of Basic Black, and finally a layer of Whisper White.  The black banner is 2 inches wide and the tag bottom is hand cut.  Tip.  In the center of the bottom cut up about 1/2".  Then cut from the left site to the top of the center cut and then cut from the right edge to the top of the center cut.  Sometimes its just faster to do banners by hand than to search for the punch or  dies.    

The butterfly is cut with the Butterfly Thinlits.  You will want to use your Precision Base Plate with your Big Shot to ensure the butterfly cuts cleanly.  Then use the Die brush and the foam pad to remove all of the small pieces cleanly and quickly. 

The square the butterfly sits on is the largest square from the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  The butterfly is popped up on Dimensionals cut from the edge of the Dimensional sheet.  


Rhinestone Basic Jewels accent the body of the butterfly.  The sentiment is from the Colorful Seasons stamp set, available from the new 2017-2018 Annual Catalog which will be released June 1.
