Geometric Butterfly Card // Card Creations

August 17, 2017

Hello friends! Today I am sharing something that's a little bit different. I rarely do cards without sentiments, but sometimes you just need something that can't be put in to words. I went for a really fun and colorful theme with geometric shapes. Let's jump right in to some details!

I started by creating my front panel. I trimmed a piece of white cardstock down to 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" to cover the entire card front. Then, I picked out a fun geometric stencil from Teresa Collins for a background pattern. I used two distress ink minis in the colors Mustard Seed and Lucky Clover. They blended in to a fun bright green to add another fun aspect.Once I completed the background, I looked for an element that went with it. I have several die cut pieces that don't really fit with the style of the scrapbooking layouts I make, but they are perfect for cards! This butterfly is from K & Company. I put it on foam for more dimension. 

I wanted more detail behind my die cut piece before I glued it down. I picked out a 4" white doily from Wilton and some yellow embroidery floss. This helps the butterfly stand out and adds additional texture. Embroidery floss can be used in many ways to add more interest, but I decided to just wrap it around the bottom of the card.

As a final touch on this card, I used these perfectly coordinating enamel dots from Whimsy Stamps. I sprinkled groups of two in the upper right hand corner and lower left corner. This helps the eye move across the card. You don't need to have a sentiment on all of your cards. This also opens up the opportunity to add a more specific sentiment on the inside of the card at a later date. I hope you enjoyed this geometric and bright card! Thanks for stopping by!
