Tin of Cards, Swirly Scribbles, Butterfly Thinlits, Birthday Card

Setting aside the Sale a Bration and 2017 Occasions catalog stamp sets, I thought I would play with a butterfly!! We've had some unseasonably warm weather here in Minnesota but now it's turned cold again.  I live north of the latest blizzard, but the cold air from Canada pushed it's way in.  But that is the reason we didn't get the blizzard. Mixed blessings!!

This was a super easy and fun card to make.  I have LOTS of Washi tape.  Most of it is retired.  I have Washi tape from Michael's and JoAnn's too.  I need to start using it up.  This card is perfect for that.  I wished I would have had more time to cut out some more butterflies in colors that match or compliment the other non Stampin' Up! Washi tapes I have. Maybe next weekend.  I've got so much to do lately and the more I try to clean up my workroom the messier it gets!!! Do I give up or do I continue?  Well, I will continue, even though I'm not getting anywhere!!! LOL  But I am making cards so that means there's a clean space to work!! LOL

This card is a folded half sheet of Melon Mambo cardstock.  It was cut on the short side at 4-1/4" x 11".  I also cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock 4" x 5-1/4" for the focal piece.

Next I added the Washi tape from the "Pop of Pink" pack. When you use small amounts like that the spools don't seem to run out fast!!!  Hence the pile of tapes in my workroom!! I need to use them in a swap, that's a good way to use a lot of it! I'm making a note of that!!

After the tape I got out the "Swirly Scribble" dies that go with the "Swirly Bird" set and I cut the middle size swirl out using the gold metallic paper.  I poured some glue on waxed paper and folded it in half. I took my bone folder and moved the glue between the waxed paper to get it pretty even and smooth. I opened it up and set the swirl on top. I took another piece of waxed paper and pressed the swirl into the glue.  Then I removed the top piece of waxed paper and I picked up the other piece of waxed paper and bent the paper back a bit and the swirl let go and I was then able to remove it from the waxed paper.  I set it in place on the card front.  

I took a scrap piece of Melon Mambo and die cut the butterfly using the "Butterfly" thinlits die.  I set it in place using Dimensionals.  I added 6 pearls down the body of the butterfly.  It looked too drab without anything on it.  

The words are from the "Tin of Cards" set.  I layered them with a piece of Melon Mambo that I cut using the scalloped oval die.  I set the words in place using Dimensionals.  And that was it.  Pretty simple and quick!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
