Birthday Butterflies

A birthday card sure to brighten a special someone’s day! All colors of the rainbow adorn the stenciled stripe strip & are continued in the trio of fancy butterflies. Touches of black make the colors pop!

A big congrats to Beth, the newest Featured Stamper (FS897)! She has a super gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the birthday & butterflies theme, but I used different images, colors & dies, stenciled the stripes instead of using designer paper, and added some narrow black framing.

My rainbow bright card started w/ the stenciled strip. I used almost every color of ink in the Color Fuse series, a distressed stripe stencil and some detail brushes. I used parts of a scallop rectangle frame die to border the strip & help it stand out. The fancy butterflies were colored & die cut w/ their coordinating dies. I used a little foam to pop them up. I liked this particular birthday greeting for its tall letters and graphic look. To me, it paired well w/ the stripes above it.

A narrow black layer was added behind the main panel to tie it all together.
Here are the Copics I used on the butterflies:
