The first two attempts for this challenge are in a previous post and were created using the Straw Technique (not sure if that technique is the best for
a One Layer Card). I was not totally pleased with the results (I liked the foliage one
better than the floral- the floral one is a bit busy for me since the ink
smudged and I had to add more flowers to hide the smudges), so I decided to give it one more try :-)
To make this quick, easy “hybrid” card:
Using My Digital Studio (MDS), open a blank 8 ½” x 11” page and position the
butterfly image from the Wonderful Wings Stamp Brush set into the upper right
Re-size and rotate the butterfly slightly to
the right. Insert the sentiment from
Favorite Thoughts Stamp Brush set a bit below the butterfly image- I just love the sayings in this set :-) )
*** Remember to position the butterfly and sentiment on the right hand side of the cardstock so that
you can cut the cardstock and score for the fold ***.
You can print out two sets per one piece of cardstock- great for multiple cards :-)
Use the Big Shot™
with the Adorning Accents Textured Impressions™ Folder to emboss the right hand
edge of the card and color the
butterfly with Stampin’ Write markers – I used Daffodil Delight, Pacific Point
and Sahara Sand (to add the shadow).
As an afterthought, I could have printed a drop shadow but I like to color so adding one by hand is more relaxing for me :-)

Use the White Gel Pen to add accents to the
wings and cover the butterfly with an vval frame - I used a scrap piece
of Whisper White cardstock that I had previously cut an Oval Framelit™ from the Ovals
Collection. This became a mask for the rest of the card and the butterfly was the image in the "oval".
Use the Color Spritzer
Tool with the Crumb Cake Stampin’ Write marker to spritz the area around the
butterfly and add more dimension to the card.
Now you are
finished!! Quick, easy and to me, a
lot of fun!
