Bright Butterfly - Stampin' Up! Watercolor Wings

  Better late than never today!  Here is a nice Easter card a little bit late!  And with just a quick change of sentiment it can be for a birthday or thinking of you card.  And I know you all have those kind of sentiments in your stamp set stash!

  I help out with the 2 year old Sunday school class at my church and the main teacher is a super awesome lady who is still rocking it at 89.  Yes, at 89 she still teaches Sunday School...the 2 year olds no less!  #lifegoals  Every year she hosts an Easter party (and Christmas party) for our class at her house and I make the invitations because well, I make cards and it's fun to do invitations for this occasion.  This is the design for this year's party.

  The card base is Whisper White thick and then a slightly smaller layer embossed with the Elegant Dots embossing folder.

  The sentiment is from the long retired Well Scripted set and is stamped with Smoky Slate and cut with the oval layering framelits.  A Stitched Shapes oval backs the sentiment panel.

 The butterfly is a 3 step process for the wings starting with the lightest color So Saffron, then Peekabook Peach stamped off once.  Then full strength Peekaboo Peach stamped along the wing edges.  After cuting out the wings with the Butterflies framelits then I stamped the body in Smoky Slate.  It's easier to line up the body in the white space after die cutting.  If you stamp the body first and then cut you might not have it lined up well and your butterfly could have its head chopped off.

  I added a bit of Peekaboo Peach ruched ribbon behind the ovals and then popped the butterfly with dimensionals.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
