Happy Birthday - Beautiful Butterflies Card Tutorial

Hello Crafters,
In celebration of the brand-new Beautiful Butterflies collection, our very own Glynis has created a series of inspiring cards, made using elements from this range. Today's colourful creation uses the Country Flower and Filigree Happy Birthday stamp and die sets from the collection alongside elements from the recent Blooming Frames collection, proving that they work wonderfully together. 
Read on for a full step-by-step project tutorial.




Using the 8x8" Blooming Border die set, die-cut the three largest dies in Coral pearl card. Glitter around the sides of the first and third die-cut panels with Glass Slipper Sparkelicious glitter. Matt and layer the largest die-cut panel onto Azalea mirror card and attach to the base card.

2 Matt and layer patterned paper from the Floral Dreams paper pad onto the second die-cut panel and secure onto the main card with foam pads. Attach the third die-cut panel on top with foam pads.

3 Using the Floral Lace Background die set, cut the main die in Coral pearl Card. Attach a piece of acetate to the back of the panel and, using Art Glitter PVA glue and a selection of Sparkelicious glitters, carefully fill in the flowers and foliage.

TIP: Always start with the dark colours first. It will take a while to do this as you need do each flower separately and let the glue dry slightly so the colours don't run into each other.

4 When completely dry, matt and layer onto Azalea mirror card that has been cut with the second die from the set and attach to the main card with foam pads.

5 Stamp, heat-emboss and die-cut the flowers from the Country Flower stamp and die set onto Coral pearl card using Wow! Metallic Gold embossing powder. Partially shade the petals with Picked Raspberry Oxide ink, glitter with Sweetheart Sparkelicious glitter and the foliage with the Lime Zing Sparkelicious glitter. Shape the petals, glue together, and attach the flower and foliage to the base card. Glitter a large pearl from the Chloe’s Favourites Bling Box with the Art Glitter glue and Deep Pink Sparkelicious glitter. When dry, secure into the middle of the flower.

6 Attach the jewels from the Spring Collection Bling Box using Art Glitter glue on to the Blooming Border and Floral Lace Background die-cut shapes. 

7 Cover a small piece of card with the A4 double-sided adhesive sheet, remove the covering and sprinkle with Deep Pink Sparkelicious glitter. Place the largest die from the Filigree Happy Birthday stamp and die set onto the glittered panel and die cut. Cut the Happy Birthday sentiment in Coral pearl card, attach both together, and secure onto the base card.
