Embossed Two Ways: Butterfly Brilliance Butterfly Trio Card


Butterfly Brilliance Trio of Butterflies - 1 (1)

Hello! I'm so excited to share this pretty card with you today! I have a video and dimensions below – plus lots of tips.  This card is both heat embossed and dry embossed. I used the White Embossing Powder and the Quite Curvy set for the "Hello" greeting. The dry embossing is done with the beautiful Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder – so gorgeous! Champagne Rhinestones add a little sparkle!

The card is made with some of the products from the beautiful Butterfly Brilliance Collection that came out today! Do you get my weekly free project sheets in your email box? In this week's email I shared a project sheet for another pretty card made with the Butterfly Brilliance Collection. You can sign up for the weekly project sheets HERE.

The pretty Butterfly Bijou 6" x 6" Designer Paper perfectly lines up with the large butterfly die – so you can die cut six instant butterflies (no coloring required!).

After you die cut the butterflies, the leftover paper looks like this. You can still die cut out these partial butterflies and use them on the inside of your card or peeking behind a layer.

I just lined up the flat edge of the butterfly with the edge of the card, and you would never guess that it was just a partial butterfly!

Here is a close up on all of the pretty patterns in the Butterfly Bijou paper. I used the pattern on the bottom row, second from the left behind my trio of butterflies.

I hope you enjoyed today's card! One of the great things about being a demonstrator is all of the creative inspiration we receive from other demonstrators in the Stampin' Up! demonstrator only Facebook group. For this card I was very much inspired by a layout shared by Australian Demonstrator Kylie Page. The background of her card was covered in the multiple white die cut detailed butterflies. I loved the card but did not want to have to cut out that many intricate butterflies (I like fast cards!). So I simplified the card by doing an embossed background instead and made a few other changes as well. 


Basic White 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" scored at 4-1/4" – for card base

Basic White 4" x 5-1/4" – for embossed layer

Basic White 2-3/4" x 4" – for butterfly layer

Butterfly Bijou Designer Series Paper, Calypso Coral pattern, 2-7/8" x 4-1/8" – for layer under the butterfly layer.
