Paper Pieced Scroll Butterfly with Jen

CatherineButterflies, CP Designs, Die Cutting

Hi!  This is Jen from Jen's Ink Spot and today I wanted to share a fun technique with the new In Flight & Scroll Butterfly dies.

1 Jen Carter CP Kaleidoscope Scroll & In Flight 1

For this card I started by die cutting the Scroll Butterfly die from white cardstock.  I then chose the color scheme for the card and die cut the butterfly in three additional colors and started piecing the wing pieces together. I used a tiny bit of tape on the back of the wings to hold the pieces in.

For the pink background I used the In Flight Butterfly die to emboss into the pink cardstock at an angle.  This left an impression of the butterfly in the paper.  I have a Big Shot die cutting machine and the sandwich I used was Multipurpose Platform with no tabs, Cutting Plate, Embossing Pad, Cardstock, In Flight Butterfly Die, Cutting Plate.  I placed the die at an angle when I die cut. 

I also die cut the In Flight Butterfly with masking paper (if you don't have masking paper use thin typing paper or a post-it note) and then placed the paper over the butterfly impression I had made in the cardstock.  I used the Kaleidoscope Background stamp, inked up with VersaMark ink, and then stamped the background. Since I had the mask over my butterfly impression, the butterfly was left as a solid piece of cardstock with no pattern once the background was stamped.  

I trimmed the pink cardstock and attached the Scroll Butterfly to it so that it would line up with the butterfly impression and also hang over the side of the cardstock.  I adhered my panel piece with dimensional tape to a piece of navy cardstock.

I stamped the sentiment, from the Wonderful Wildflowers Stamp Set, on to navy cardstock, embossed it with white embossing powder and then attached the strips with dimensional tape to the card front.

Thank you so much for visiting today! Have a wonderful day!
