Butterfly Gala, 2019 Occasions Catalog, Thank You Card, Botanical Butterfly

Well, isn't this a fun set to play with?  I can't wait to stamp some more cards with it.  I'm loving the butterflies in it!  The "Butterfly Gala" set has both butterflies and words to the set. 

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock.  This card opens at the bottom.

First I took a quarter sheet of Whisper White card stock and I stamped the butterfly using black Memento ink.  I chose the one that looked like a Monarch butterfly. I set up the stamp in the Stamparatus because I knew I needed to make at least three.  Since I used a quarter sheet of card stock, I planned on making four sets.  I say sets because the butterfly also has a small one attached to it so when you punch it out they are both lined up together.  Very cleaver! 

Next I stamped the top part of the butterfly using Pumpkin Pie ink.  Then I stamped the bottom part of the butterfly, again using Pumpkin Pie ink.

I lined up the body pieces and stamped them using black Memento ink.  Then I stamped the antennas but once I was ready to punch the butterflies out I realized I shouldn't have stamped them.  But what is done is done and I proceeded forward!

I cut a 2" x 3-3/4" piece of the small buffalo check paper from the "Botanical Butterfly" Designer Series Paper (DSP).  I taped the DSP in place on the left side of the card front.  

I set the butterflies on the card front for placement but I didn't stick them down.  The words are also from the "Butterfly Gala" set using black Memento ink. 

Then I set the butterflies in place using Dimensionals.  And that was it.  Super easy and quick card. I LOVE that punch!! I don't think I would like fussy cutting all of those butterflies.  Maybe one but not three.  I punched four because I stamped for. Now I have an extra one plus for tiny ones to play with later!!!

This was a fun card to make and these butterflies are making me wish for spring to be here.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

Very nice. I like the buffalo check pattern on the side. It pairs well with the butterflies.
Whoever came up with idea of making dies to go with stamp sets was a genius.
