Butterfly Basics Z-Fold

Happy Monday!

Are you loving the Butterfly Basics Stamp Set and Framelits as much as I am?!?!? This set/bundle is one of my most favorite items in the Occasions Catalog.

Let's take a look at my Z-fold card:

I really like the layers and colors of this card. If you haven't tried this card style yet, the measurements are 4 1/4 x 11, scored at 2 3/4 and 5 1/2.

You can see the layered and inlaid die cut butterfly better from this angle:

After die-cutting the butterfly, I stamped using Baked Brown Sugar, stamped off once. The negative die-cut piece (3 1/4 x 3 1/2) was then attached to the Baked Brown Sugar piece (3 3/4 x 3 1/2), and the Crushed Curry butterfly was inlaid. The Whisper White butterfly was adhered with dimensionals and Thick Baker's Twine was used for the antennae.

Here is the card opened:

Again, I stamped off once on the Whisper White piece, but stamped full strength on the left panel. Oops, just noticed I forgot the pearls above and below the sentiment. Better check the other cards to make sure I added them (this is the thank you card I am sending for February orders).

I am linking this card to the following challenges:

CCEE #1509 - Inlaid Die Cuts

PP #234 - Think Spring

Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies used:  Baked Brown Sugar, Coastal Cabana, Crushed Curry, and Whisper White CS, Lullaby DSP, Baked Brown Sugar, Coastal Cabana, and Crushed Curry Ink, Baked Brown Sugar Thick Baker's Twine, Basic Pearls, Bitty Butterfly, Curly Label, and Decorative Label Punches, Butterflies Thinlits, and Butterfly Basics Stamp Set.
