Glassine Butterfly Card - BWB Video Series #5

This card screams elegant!  I used the new Glassine Sheets from Stampin' Up! to give this card some amazing texture and interest.

The pictures do this butterfly no justice!  

The butterfly itself is 3 layers, using both the Butterfly Thinlits and Bold Butterfly Framelits Dies to create this look.  So lets get started with this project:

Whisper White Card Stock: 5 1/2" X 8 1/2" scored at 4 1/4, Scrap for Butterflies
Everyday Chic DSP: 4" X 5 1/4"
Glassine Sheets: 3 3/4" X 5", Scrap for butterfly
Whisper White Baker's Twine: 36"

Fold your card base along the score line.  Attach the piece of DSP to the front with SNAIL adhesive.  Take your piece of Glassine that measures 3 3/4" X 5" and squish it!  Yep, cumple it all up!  3 or 4 times actually, flattening it back out between crumpling it.  Once you are happy with the way it looks, attach it to your DSP layer with 2 way glue pen.  I selectively chose under where the butterfly would be and the corners.  You will still see where this layer is attached, but the 2 way glue pen makes it a little less noticeable. 
Wrap your twine around your card starting at the front where the butterfly will be.  Use Scotch tape to secure it.  Wrap around your card 3 times and end back where you started, adhering again with tape.  Trim off any excess.
Now for the butterflies!  With your Stampin' Pierce Mat underneath, stamp the butterfly image with the 2 outside wing images in Momento Black ink.  Also stamp the smaller butterfly image that has the dots in the image.  Be sure to stamp this separately, not on top of the other image.  Place a piece of wax paper over the small butterfly image and and run it through the Big Shot with the Bold Butterfly Framelits and Butterflies Thinlits Dies.  Now using the small full butterfly image die from the Butterflies Thinlits Dies, cut out a piece of Glassine Sheet.
Once your larger butterfly is cut out, you can come back in with the butterfly body image and stamp it.  I find it easier to do this after I run the butterfly through the Big Shot.
Now attach the butterflies together using 2 Way Glue Pen. Place Rhinestones on top of the Glassine Butterfly body.  Attach your butterfly to the front of your card using Dimensionals.
It's ready to give!

Butterfly Note Card - Black, White and Butterfly All Over Series

This project is super simple and requires only stamp, ink and paper!  You could create a whole stack of these thank you notes in no time at all.  It starts with the Whisper White Note Cards and Envelopes.  These beauties are a hidden gem in the catalog.  They come 20 note cards and 20 envelopes to a pack and they are prescored, which makes them perfect for beginning stampers!  
The beauty of the Watercolor Wings stamp is that it doesn't have to be used with the framelits to be beautiful.  Sure the framelits make these butterflies pop, but you can create beautiful, simple projects without them!
I have stamped the front of this card with the butterfly image in Black Momento ink.  You will need to stamp the butterfly body and  antennae as well.  Along the bottom of the card I stamped the dots image without reinking towards the center and did the same on the other side. 

Simply stamp the inside as shown with your sentiment and dots image to finish this super simple and beautiful project.
