This week, City Crafter Challenge Blog uses a vintage, graphic image of this butterfly. selected by Linda Robnson…
I copied the image a total of five times…
The largest copy is of the butterfly on it’s card. Copied again at the same size, I fussy cut and positioned it to sit on top of the butterfly card for dimension.
I made a little envelope from kraft card stock, sized for the butterfly panel, then stamped it with a flourish and wrapped it with a hand dyed silk ribbon.
Three butterflies, each progressively smaller, were cut out and adhered with their wings folded up a bit for interest. To keep the wings in shape and elevated, I coated the back of the paper with matte sealer. On the front of each butterfly, I drew over the black areas with an iridescent gelly roll pen to add some lightness and reflection to the matte paper surface. I love the look of a flurry of butterflies escaping from the envelope! A sentiment can be added to the upper left portion of the background paper or as a tag and attached to the envelope.
