Papillon Potpourri Birthday


Inspiration:  Just like the card in my last post, this card was all about the DSP and building the card around it.  It's an unusual color combination, but it grew on me as I worked with it.  And, yes, I seem to be on a butterfly kick.  I'll try to do something different in my next post, but I can't promise. :)

Tips:
  • Cut each "stitched" piece of paper separately.  The stitching doesn't show up as well when you adhere them all together first and then cut them.  (These are non-Stampin' Up! dies, but they make my Stampin' Up! paper and stamp sets more fun to use!)
  • The scalloped circle is popped up with dimensionals as are the butterfly wings.  I placed half a dimensional on the top piece of each wing and applied a little Tombow glue down the center.  Press and hold the center down when you adhere it to the circle.
  • Place a glue dot under the ribbon knot to keep it in place.
  • The rhinestones were colored with a black Sharpie.

I believe the ribbon is from a previous Sale-A-Bration.  However, you could use either Calypso Coral Seam Binding Ribbon or Thick Twine as a substitute.
