Butterfly Brilliance and Give It A Whirl dies

Hello and welcome back to my blog. I hope you're managing to enjoy the gorgeous weather we are experiencing here in the UK at the moment.

Today I have a special card that I made my friend who has had a special birthday recently. She loves butterflies so I had to use my butterfly dies and I did combine it with the now sold out Butterfly Bijou designer series paper (dsp).

From a sheet of 12x12” basic white cardstock, I created a 6x6” card base. On a sheet of dsp, I stamped butterflies from the stamp Butterfly Brilliance bundle in smoky slate to add further interest to the back ground and adhered this to the card base, ensuring the whole front was covered. 

I then cut the wheel from the Give It A Whirl dies using thick basic white. And used the main die from the set to cut the front from dsp (although in hindsight it was a little thin), I die cut the window by lining up the little pin hole on the die cut front.

Then I stamped on the wheel using sentiments from the Best Year stamp set. (It was easy to do as the impression on the wheel was the same shape of the window). Just make sure you stamp them the right way up!

To get more movement on the wheel I punched an extra circle to put on the back of the wheel. I used one of the new brads from the catalogue to attach the front, wheel and punched circle together.

I added dimensionals all around the wheel, down all the sides (make sure it doesn’t stop the wheel from turning) and on the punched circle over the top of the back of the brad.

And then I cut the number 40 from Playful Alphabet dies, in magenta madness and glued on to one of the openings on the wheel.

I decorated by wrapping white twine on the side and adding die cut butterflies from the butterfly brilliance bundle (I cut the detail from basic white and magenta madness and die cut the solid from vellum). And finished the card off with some rhinestone basic jewels on the body of the butterflies and underneath to create a butterfly trail.

For the inside, I used a layer of dsp and a layer of basic white. The verse on the inside is from the retired stamp set Thanks For The Laughs. For a little bit of detail, I added a butterfly cut from magenta madness in the corner.
