Feel Better Flutterings Card Making Tutorial and Video

 Hi everyone! I have a card, using Signs of Spring, that I shared at the release party last week. I did step by step photos (below) and a video of this one.

Here is a video and HERE is a link to the video at Youtube. 

Start by cutting ivory cardstock using Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics A (or trim to 2 ½ by 3 ¾ inches). Then sponge Gina K Sweet Corn ink along the sides and top.

Sponge Gina K Fresh Asparagus along the bottom.

Sponge Gina K Warm Cocoa along all four sides.

Stamp the silhouette branch three times. I used black on my card, but I think I would have liked brown better.

Use an opaque white gel pen to add highlights to the leaves. Then set the background aside.

Stamp the two butterflies on white cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

Begin coloring using Copic marker E15.

Add YR07.

Then fill in with Y23. After coloring, cut out the wings.

Stamp the butterflies on your background and use an N5 Copic marker to color in their bodies.

Glue the wings onto the stamped images.

Cut an oval from ivory cardstock using Spellbinders Classic Ovals SM and sponge around the edges using Fresh Asparagus ink.

Then sponge lightly with Warm Cocoa. Sorry I didn't get a photo of that step.

Stamp the sentiment.

Adhere the image layer to a piece of Pure Luxury Dark Chocolate cardstock and wrap burlap string around opposite corner, tying in a bow. Use adhesive foam squares to adhere to the Sweet Corn card base and more adhesive foam squares to add the oval layer.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a great day!

Finished card size - 4 ¼ by 5 ½
