Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a beautiful any occasion card featuring the Magic in this Night DSP! Since some of the designs from this designer series paper can be used for cards outside of Halloween, occasionally I will hit the “pause button” and show you fun alternative cards! Since the design I chose for today’s card is black and white, this is the perfect opportunity to use a bright pop of color like Magenta Madness!
The base layer is this design from the Magic in this Night DSP, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, I cut the 12” x 12” DSP into six base layers at 4” x 5 ¼” and six ¾” x 4” strips:
For the butterflies, I first cut a piece of Magenta Madness cardstock and Black Glitter Paper at 4” x 5 ¼” and places a piece of adhesive sheet on the back. The butterfly outline die is used with the glitter paper and the detailed base butterfly die is used with the Magenta Madness cardstock, use your Take Your Pick tool and die brush tool to get any of the little detailed cuts out of the papers. Remove the adhesive backing from the glitter paper, adhere to the cardstock, and carefully use your snips to cut the butterflies apart. You can make three cards when you separate the butterflies:
For the card front, you will need:
1. Cut a piece of Basic Black cardstock at 1” x 5 ½” and use the edgelit die to cut out. Since the die is not as long as the cardstock, I first cut part of the cardstock with the die, leaving part of the end off the edge of the plate, and then line the die up so the rest of the cardstock can be cut with the already cut part, leaving part of that off the edge. Basically, you are adjusting the die to custom cut the cardstock longer than what the die is.
2. Use the small double butterfly die to cut out of the Black Glitter Paper scrap left-over from the large butterfly die, this has the adhesive sheet on the back.
3. Use the small double butterfly die and the small detailed butterfly die to cut out of the Magenta Madness left-over scrap cardstock, this has the adhesive sheet on the back.
I used liquid glue to adhere the detailed die-cut cardstock along the left side of the base layer. You want to line the edge of the cardstock as shown from the ends, so when you snip the excess cardstock off the ends the pattern is even:
Remove the adhesive backing from all the butterfly die cuts and place as shown:
This completed piece is adhered to a Magenta Madness cardstock card base, cut at 4 ¼” x 11”, and scored at 5 ½”:
For the inside, cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼” and adhere the ¾” x 4” strip of DSP along the bottom:
Here are the other two cards that I made with the rest of the die-cut butterflies:
Isn’t this a beautiful card?? One thing that I do love about the Butterfly Beauty Dies, is that there are several duplicate dies, which makes cutting multiples easy! Did you notice that there was NO stamping involved with this card?? This way you can choose the sentiment for the inside!
