Butterflies 1, 2, 3 … Step It Up

Bitty Butterfly Punch and Pretty Petals Paper Card

 

Using the same products for each of these three cards, you can see how easy it is to step up a card from super simple to a little more advanced.

This first card is my 5 minute card and that really is all the time it took to make. A super simple card in black and white with only the greeting stamped. 

 

For each of these cards, the Bitty Butterfly punch does the work supported by the Pretty Petals designer series paper stack, rhinestones and the Triple Banner Punch.

I used a different pattern or two for each card showcasing the versatility of this paper. For card making, I think small consisent patterns often work best and this paper stack has lots to pick from.

This card would be a 10 minute card. Still very simple and no stamping at all.  It took a few minutes with the Stampin’ Trimmer to cut the paper at an angle and then it was just time to assemble the card. All of the guides and measurements on the trimmer make the task straight forward.

And finally the 15 minute card. I added a background of Silver Thread to the card to dress if up a bit more. It did take a few minutes to align the butterflies and add the rhinestones.

 I found it worked best to place all Basic Black butterflies on the card first and then add a second layer of punched paper butterflies with  Stampin’ Dimensionals.
