Flutter-By Thank-You Card

Flutter by thank-you. Soft peach butterfly theme with a large vellum 3D butterfly. Scripture verse on front.

I had a lot of fun creating this one. Anxious to try making a butterfly, I searched through my cartridges looking for a fancy one. Home Décor cartridge to the rescue!

The card base is coral with a print card stock panel on top. For the sentiment, I chose Psalm 96:1 and printed it on plain white. Then I punched the top edge using Martha Stewart's "Thanks" punch. Doing all of that left an empty spot just the right size for the butterfly.

The butterfly has 3 layers. The top one is vellum to give the flutter-by something to flutter. I then added pearls to the head and body and some sparkles here and there on the vellum wings. The vellum also has its own swirls which adds movement.

I created a panel for writing a personal message, and stamped butterflies in the corners and a swoosh in the centre in a coral-pink. I also sponged around the white edges.

Colours in photos do not always translate properly. The coral colour of this card is quite vibrant but not orangey.


  1. Very nice card! I love using velum on top of my shapes.

  2. Another lovely creation Grace. I love butterlies...I like the way you used the stamps on the message paper.
