Rainbow butterfly card

The main features of this card are the embossed sentiment from Suite Sayings and the butterflies cut with the Elegant Butterfly punch. The colours used are melon mambo, calypso coral, so saffron, wild wasabi, tempting turquoise and rich razzleberry. The first thing I did was cut 1 1/2″ off the 5x 7″ face of the card so the front is now 3 1/2x 7″ but the back is still 5×7″. First I stamped the sentiment with Versamark ink and set white embossing powder on it with my heat gun. I then punched the butterflies and placed them on the card edge one at a time and marked their placement with a dot and put them to the side. I then coloured each butterfly’s trail with coordinating Stampin’ Write markers and a trail of a flown away rich razzleberry butterfly at the top followed by a so saffron sun and painted water over them. Carefully smudging them then, when dry, glued on one set of wings of each butterfly. Finally I embellished it using rhinestone basic jewels. #stampinup
