Butterflies Flight Vellum Overlay Cards

Inspired by the beautiful Honey Doo Crafts Design Team cards that were on display at last week’s Honey Doo Crafts workshop I decided to have a play with my new Butterflies Flight stamp and made some vellum overlay cards whilst watching the football yesterday afternoon.

I started by stamping the Butterflies Flight stamp using Smokey Gray Versafine ink onto white card (approximately 6 1/2″ square) and heat embossed the images with clear embossing powder. I mixed a small amount of the Honey Doo Mica powders with water to make a mica paint and painted the butterflies. Once dry I gently folded a piece of vellum over each card square and stamped the Butterflies Flight stamp using Versamark ink trying to line up the image with the image below and heat embossed with White Opal embossing powder. I also stamped and heat embossed the birthday and hello sentiments using Versamark ink and White Opal embossing powder. I then attached the vellum overlays to the back of each square using double sided tape and trimmed them to size.

I mounted the card fronts in two different ways, the birthday cards were matted and layered onto coloured card and then onto the white 7″x 7″ card blank using double sided tape. I then applied 4mm AB gems to the corners of the overlay and 2mm AB gems to the head of each butterfly using Tacky glue.

For the hello card I painted the edges of the card blank with the remaining mica paint and once dry attached the card front using double sided tape. I then stamped and heat embossed the Butterflies Flight stamp onto a scrap of velum using the same method used for the vellum overlays and cut out the butterflies before folding them in the middle and attaching using silicone glue applied just to the body to give a 3d affect. The card was them finished with AB gems.
