Each month, a number of demonstrators from my upline’s team (myself included) participate in a team Facebook hop. Each month has a theme, and we all create projects based on that theme. We then each link to a different person on the list, and you go page to page using the links to see everyone’s projects! Once you get back to the person you started with, the hop is complete! Facebook and blog hops are a great way to see lots of different projects, and get lots of ideas and inspiration! If you are visiting my blog from the Facebook hop for March, WELCOME! I hope you will check back again soon!
For this month’s hop, our theme is “Three Shades of Green”. My first thought of course was to make a St. Patrick’s Day themed project, but then decided to go with a large butterfly instead! For this card, I used the largest butterfly from the Butterflies Thinlits Dies as the focus, along with a sentiment from the Petal Palette stamp set. The full Butterflies Thinlits set includes three dies:
Note: in order to make the butterfly fit on the card and leave room for the sentiment, I trimmed the little tails from the bottom of the wings.
The three greens I used for this card are:
The glimmer paper that the butterfly is cut from may be a fourth green, OR it may coordinate with Lemon Lime Twist…it’s just listed as “light green” in the description of the paper, so I am not 100% sure which green it is supposed to be! I think it looks like Lemon Lime Twist though, so we’ll go with that!
The base of this card is Garden Green, with a Pear Pizzazz middle layer. The butterfly is cut from the green glimmer paper using the Big Shot, with a Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet on the back to make adhering the butterfly easy and mess free! Also, I stamped some ink spots/blotches on the background using a stamp from the Swirly Bird stamp set using Lemon Lime Twist ink. The sentiment is stamped in Garden Green to match the base. The card is also embellished with a few iridescent sequins, to give it a little extra sparkle and shine!
Measurements for this card are as follows:
Garden Green card base: 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 inches (scored at 4-1/4 inches and folded in half)
Pear Pizzazz middle layer: 4 x 5-1/4 inches
Whisper White top layer: 3-7/8 x 5-1/8 inches
Green Glimmer Paper and Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet: cut to fit butterfly
