Butterfly Kisses by Elin

Hi, crafty friends. Today’s card is another one of those happy ones. We’ve been buried in snow in Oslo so far this winter, there’s more coming, and there’s nothing like the dead of winter to make me want to make happy, cheerful cards using spring and summer colors. Rachelle Anne Miller to the rescue. This month’s release was definitely geared toward Valentine’s day, and I fell for Butterfly Kisses, which is a stamp of two butterflies with flower wings.

I colored the butterflies (and the three hearts that are part of the image) with Copics and fussy cut them, leaving a thin white trim around the edge. Onto a top fold card base I created from Stamper’s Select White cardstock from Papertrey Ink, I ink blended the center of the card, using the Watercolor Rectangle stencil from My Favorite Things and various inks (Distress Ink Picked Raspberry, Distress Ink Worn Lipstick, Altenew Pink Pearl, Distress Ink Scattered Straw). I went with pink on the edge and yellow in the center to mimic the colors in the hearts.

I die cut the word klem (hug) four times from white cardstock and once from Gold Shine cardstock from My Favorite Things, and stacked them for a layered look. I added foam tape to the back of my butterflies, adhered them top center on the card and put the stacked klem below them. I also added a sub sentiment from Norsk Stempelblad AS that I white heat embossed on a piece of Berry Sorbet cardstock from Papertrey Ink. I put a few layers of cardstock behind it for dimension and added it to the card, partly on top of the die cut, before embellishing with the colored hearts to finish.

Bright and happy color palette for this one.
