Hello crafty friends! I'm so honored to be joining the blog hop to celebrate Altenew's Plentiful Patterns Stand-alone Dies/Stencils release!
There are so many gorgeous stand-alone dies and stencils in this release! Here is just a sample of what you will find over in the Altenew shop:
Okay, now on to my card! I absolutely love the Bountiful Butterflies collection (5% savings with the bundle)! There are so many possibilities in the colors and where to feature it, as I did here, with the Itty Bitty Flowers die set!
I began by die cutting the Grid Cover die from some 80# Neenah and adhering it to a top-folding A2 card base. I just love the white-on-white backgrounds!
Then I die cut the Itty Bitty Flowers dies with three shades of purple card stock for the flowers and some green card stock for the stem. When you see all of the little pieces, you may feel totally lost as to how to assemble them. However, I followed the included layering guide (see the next photo), and I didn't find it difficult at all! I adhered the flower pieces with glue and added them to the stem.
Next I pulled out the awesome Bountiful Butterflies stencil set. Something to note: I found it much easier to die cut the butterflies first with the coordinating Bountiful Butterflies dies. Keep them in the negative space, add some tape to the back, and then stencil. I tried to die cut my first butterfly after I stenciled it and found that I had not placed the stencil correctly! I used three of the Shades of Purple inks and some Puffy Heart ink to color my butterfly. Then I used the stencil to add some clear glitter paste to the butterfly. I love how sparkly it is!
When the butterfly was dry, I added foam tape to the back of it and the Itty Bitty Flowers stem and adhered them to the card. I also popped up the sentiment that I stamped using the Birthday Builder stamp set. I added some pink enamel dots from the Cherry Blossom Enamel Dot set.
