My mini series continues even though I know you’re not as excited for it as I was for the continuation of North and South. If you have no idea what I am talking about see Sunday’s Post. I am showing multiple ways to use the Concord & 9th Floral & Flutter die set set. Floral & Flutter Way 2.
happy birthday card recipe
What you need: A die set that is not solid, Nuvo Mousse in 3 colors, Nuvo crystal drops or similar and a sentiment. This is a pretty simple card, but I think the simplicity makes it lovely. White card stock should be cut at 5 1/4 x 4 inches. Another piece of card stock cut at (now this is my great match) 5 1/4 (plus 2 notches up) by 4 (plus 2 notches up). I brushed the top third of the larger piece of card stock with the pink peony Nuvo Mousse using the Tonic mini blending brush. The second third is brushed with cornflower blue Nuvo Mousse and the last third with violet Nuvo Mousse. Using the butterfly in the die set, I placed it at an angle on the smaller piece of white card stock and ran it through my die cut machine. I pieced the cut out butterfly in the butterfly cut out left on the small piece of white card stock. Using my mini blender brushes and the same colors of Mousse, I brushed the color on different parts of butterfly slightly overlapping the outer card stock little leaving more white space than not. With the brushes, I flick outward away from the butterfly image. The brush strokes make rays towards the outside of the butterfly all the way around the butterfly. I placed the card stock in my MISTI and stamped the sentiment with Versafine Black Onyx ink.
And that’s all of the hard work. The large piece of card stock goes on the card base. The smaller piece of card stock is centered on the larger piece of card stock. Then the butterfly gets placed back in the die cut, but gluing only the center and I lifted up the wings and antennae. Nuvo Crystal drops provided the final touches.
Thanks for stopping by the blog today. Tune in tomorrow for another way to use the Floral and Flutter die set.
Have a great day and enjoy the journey and some chocolate.
