Using Up Leftovers




Inspiration:  This card by Mary Fish along with my leftover butterflies from my last post led to this card.  Instead of using washi tape like Mary used for her card, I used strips of DSP in varying widths. I also added another butterfly because it felt like it just needed a little something else.  Note that I used the reverse side of the butterflies that I cut out for my previous post.

Tips:
  • The vellum butterflies are attached to the butterfly underneath with a little multipurpose glue right in the center.  
  • I used the Tree Builder Punch again to make the butterfly center and the Cupcake Builder Punch for the little glimmer circles.
  • Since I'm a little OCD, I used grid paper to line up the strips to make sure they're straight.  I attached the card stock to the grid paper with a little post-it tape (you could also use washi tape) and started 1/2 inch from the bottom.  Once you have the first strip in place, the other two will be straight also.
  • The strip widths starting from the bottom are 1/2 inch, 3/8 inch and 5/8 inch.  I made them a little longer than 5" so I could snip off the extra.
  • I made a few extra cards and used my MISTI to stamp the greeting.  Since I started my strips at the same spot every time (the grid paper does come in handy), it was easy to place the greeting for multiple card fronts.
