Pretty Pink Flutterby card

I love Butterflies, especially on crafting materials like paper and ribbon so I was beyond excited to get my hands on the latest gel-a-tins gelly jr 'Flutterby' 2 x 2 stamp. I used the stamp on printable acetate to create a dimensional effect.


Products Used

gel-a-tins gelly jr 'Flutterby' Stamp

docrafts Papermania Lucy Cromwell Sentiments
Colorbox Pink Ink Pa
Xyron 9" Creative Station
Xyron 150 X
Xyron Mega Runner
Printable Acetate
White Shimmer Paper
White Satin Ribbon

How It's Made

Cut a piece of polka dot paper measuring 4 1/1" x 7 1/2" and run through the Xyron 9" Creative Station and place onto the front of the card, cut the second piece of patterned topper paper 3 3/4" x 6 3/4" and run through the Xyron 5" Creative Station and layer on top.

Using the gel-a-tins 'Flutterby' 2x2 gelly jr stamp and the colorbox pink ink pad stamp three Flutterby's onto the printable acetate and two onto the white shimmer paper. Cut out the Flutterby's. Turn the white Flutterby over so that the back is showing and run through the Xyron 150 X (inked side down) and place on the front of the card. Bend the wings of the acetate Flutterby's and using the Xyron Mega Runner down the underside of the body of the flutterby and place on top of the white Flutterby's.


On the bottom of the card run the Xyron mega runner across the the patterned paper and adhere the white satin ribbon and then place the sentiment on top. Put the final 'Flutterby' on the corner of the sentiment.


And that's it.
