Welcome to the March 2021 IRBH – InKing Royalty Blog Hop! This month’s theme is Flowers & Fauna. For my project, I used the new Butterfly Brilliance collection for the fauna (butterflies) and the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder for the Flowers, to make a W-fold card. After reading my post, be sure to hop to the next stop, Rachel Brumley at Artistic Designs by Rachel. Scroll down to see the full hop list if you get lost.

Here’s what I made:

The butterflies are adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals so they look like they’re flying right off the card.Butterfly Brilliance W-Fold Card #stampcandy

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my paper trimmer:

  • Magenta Madness card stock (CS) cut to 11″ x 4-1/4″ , then scored in half at 5-1/2″
  • Magenta Madness CS cut to 11″ x 1-1/2″, and scored at 2-3/4″, 5-1/2″, and 8-1/4″
  • Misty Moonlight CS layer cut to 5-1/4″ x 4″
  • Blushing Bride CS layer cut to 5-1/8″ x 3-7/8″
  • Basic White CS cut to 5-1/4″ x 4″ for the inside of the card base

Stamped with the Butterfly Brilliance stamp set:

  • butterflies in Misty Moonlight ink onto a piece of the Butterfly Bijou Designer Series Paper (DSP)

Stamped with the Dandelion Wishes stamp set:

  • sentiment in Night of Navy ink onto a scrap of Vellum
  • NOTE: I used the Stamparatus so the stamp wouldn’t slide around on the Vellum. I allowed the ink to dry completely before handling any more.

Cut using the Brilliant Wings Dies:

  • the butterflies using the largest die that cuts out all 6 at once

Cut using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies:

  • sentiment

Embossed using the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder:

  • Blushing Bride CS layer

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base, and the folds in the long CS strip, with a Bone Folder
  • Blushing Bride CS layer glued onto the Misty Moonlight CS layer
  • 2 pieces of Magenta Madness ribbon adhered side by side onto the top of the Blushing Bride CS layer, and wrapped around to the back of the Misty Moonlight CS layer, using Tear & Tape
  • Blushing Bride ribbon adhered over the Magenta Madness ribbon using Tear & Tape
  • Misty Moonlight ribbon adhered over the Blushing Bride ribbon using Tear & Tape
  • Misty Moonlight CS layer glued onto the front of the card base
  • sentiment laid in place on the Blushing Bride CS layer
  • 3 smallest butterflies adhered onto the Blushing Bride CS layer using Stampin’ Dimensionals, overlapping the edges of the sentiment to hold it in place
  • 3 Magenta Madness enamel dots applied onto the lower right of the sentiment using my Take Your Pick tool
  • Mini Glue Dots placed on the underside of the vellum, under the enamel dots so they won’t show
  • 1 Misty Moonlight enamel dot applied onto each butterfly head, using my Take Your Pick tool
  • Basic White CS glued onto the inside of the card base
  • the 2 end sections of the Magenta Madness CS strip glued onto the inside of the card base, just a hair away from the edges, as shown below
  • 3 largest butterflies glued onto the CS strip at varying heights
  • Butterfly Brilliance W-Fold Card #stampcandy
