Flower Garden Inspiration | Butterfly Gardens Card with Mayline
Hi friends! This is Mayline, thank you for joining me today. This is my last post with projects I made using dies from the Flower Garden collection by Sharyn Sowell. I normally make an A2 sized card using stamps, dies, and inks but today’s project I have made a square card without stamped images. Also, I wanted to make this card playful and interesting. So I layered many die cutting pieces. It was a big challenge for me but I really enjoyed.
As I mentioned above, I normally make A2 sized cards, this time I made a 6-3/4” square card. I started by creating a panel 6-3/4” square panel with skyblue cardstock. And then I cut out four of the Floral Panel Card dies using same skyblue cardstock. After that I taped them to each end of the panel. So I completed to make a lace square cover.
For the inside of the lace cover, I created a square panel that is slightly smaller than 6-3/4” using white cardstock. And then I used the Rose Bird Topiary dies to cut white paper. And I cut the pieces in half. After that I adhered the half pieces of die cutting on the edge of white square panel.
Next I prepared an A2 sized top folded white card panel. I cut out three of the Birds Singing Border dies using white cardstock. And then I adhered the pieces on the A2 sized panel. Next I cut leaves and a ribbon using the Dimensional Floral Panel dies and then I colored them. And set aside. I cut another shape of leaves from gold paper and watercolor paper using the Card Creator Floral Panel Card dies. And then I colored the leaves blue color using watercolor paints. Next I stamped a sentiment with white pigment ink on the black cardstock and then I cut it in banner shape. And then everything put together on the panel. So the cover part of the card is done. Let’s move on inside of the card.
As mentioned in the beginning, I wanted to make this card playful and interesting. So, when you open the card you can see a colorful butterfly. To start off, I use the Dimensional Floral Panel dies to cut a wreath using a gold paper. And then I created colorful panels with watercolor paints to make a butterfly. After that I used Botanical Butterfly dies to cut a butterfly body, insert wings, decorative wings and antennas. I put them together. Next I adhered the wreath and butterfly on the inside of the A2 sized panel. And I adhered A2 sized panel to the white square panel. To complete this card, I attached the white square panel on the inside of the skyblue square.
