Fluttering Thoughts – Slimline i-crafter Butterfly Card

Butterfly Bursts

Hello my crafty friends!   Welcome to the i-crafter blog! Is anyone else making slim line cards?  I find that I am drawn to them lately. I love the tall and narrow area to create on.  I’m so excited to share this fun slimline card featuring the i-crafter Butterfly Burst dies.

Using the large detailed die cluster, I die cut the Butterfly Burst die from a piece of alcohol ink cardstock I created using the i-Mend Self Mending Cutting Deck with my die cutting machine to cut out the dies.   I shaped and curled the wings of the butterfly to create a 3 dimensional look . I used the Butterfly Burst die to cut out a black  butterfly cluster for the background.

I took a piece of white cardstock measuring 3 3/4″ x  8 3/4″.  This will be the card front for my slimline card.  I attached a piece of low tack purple tape across the bottom of the card to act as a mask.  I used Black Silk and Sparkle Silk to create the splattered effect on the card.

 I removed the purple tape exposing an untouched white stripe on the card front.  I centered and attached the card front to a slightly larger black piece of cardstock measuring 3 7/8″ x 8 7/8″ to create a narrow frame.

I glued the 3D alcohol ink Butterfly Burst to the matching  black Butterfly Burst frame, making sure I did NOT glue the the shaped butterfly wings to the frame.  I turned it over an attached double sided foam adhesive to the back side of the black frame.

Using the Scattered Thoughts stamp set,  I stamped “Thinking of You” at the bottom of the card front in the white stripe area.  I removed the protective strips from the double side foam adhesive and attached the butterfly cluster to the upper area of the card front.

To complete the card, I attached the card front to a 4″ x 9 1/4″  slimline peach card base.
