Hello friends! This is Design Team member Crystal Komara here with you today sharing a slimline card featuring the beautiful Just Butterflies digital stamp set. I love to create cards using flowers and butterflies, they are probably among my favorite. I also enjoy creating slimline cards. Have you jumped on the slimline card trend yet? They're easy to make (though consume a little more paper) but if you size yours to 8 1/2" x 3 1/2" it will fit inside a regular #10 business envelope and require no additional postage! Plus, it gives you more space to create on! Today's card features the Just Butterflies digital stamp set from Joy Clair Designs.
The base of this slimline card is made from 80 lb. Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. Using a slimline die with three circular holes, I created the base frame. Behind the three circles I adhered some multi-colored plaid designer paper. I printed the Just Butterflies digital stamp set onto Neenah White cardstock and colored the images with Copic markers. I kept the coloring very simple and only used two colors for each butterfly. I fussy cut each butterfly and adhered it to the card using 3M foam adhesive for added dimension. I printed the sentiment "wishing you a colorful day" from the Pencil Me digital stamp set. Lastly, I added a coat of clear Wink of Stella to the butterflies for added sparkle and tiny dot of white gel pen for more dimension.
