Butterfly Basics Stamp Set with Butterflies Thinlits Tunnel Fun Fold Card

Butterfly Basics Stamp Set with the Butterflies Thinlits are one of my favorite Bundles.  The set can be found on Page 124 of the 2015-16 Stampin' Up! catalog.

I had a great time learning a new technique inspired by Dawn O.  There were many steps to the card, but if you take it slow, you can create!

Whisper White:  1 full sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 cut in half 8 1/2 x 5 1/2; set one aside for stamping and do not score yet.  The other sheet you will score at 2 1/2, 4 1/4, and 6 3/8.

Take this sheet to the Big Shot and use your second largest oval framelit to cut an oval lining up on the center score line.  Run it through the big shot.  Fold center towards you then the ends fold into center of card.  This will create an "M"

Now using your other sheet of Whisper White and the cut out oval sheet as a guide, stamp your image directly in the middle of the non-scored Whisper White, but off to the left side just a little.  You will want to add your sentiment to the lower right side.

As you can see, I chose to try two different methods, one using heat embossing with Gold Powder and the other with Memento Black ink and Stampin Write markers.

For layering, I used a sheet of Blackberry Bliss card stock cut 4 x 5 1/4.  I then cut a piece of Whisper White 3 3/4 x 5 and used an embossing folder to create a nice background.

Added Blackberry Bliss ribbon, used the Butterflies thinlits (medium) and cut out with Blackberry Bliss.  Stamped two butterflies in Blackberry Bliss and cut them out with the Big Shot.

Added some glue dots to the larger butterfly on the back side, then a Stampin Dimensional to the backside of the stamped butterfly and layered them.

Added the "hello" sentiment from the Hello You Thinlits to fill in the white space on the front of the card.

I thought the inside of the card was too plain so I found some Designer Series Paper to match my colors and added them to each side making the stamped image inside the oval as the main image and your focal point.

I hope these instructions are helpful.  Please comment if you have questions.  Thank you for viewing my blog today, and as always, Happy Stamping from Inspired By Gram!
