Butterflies Everywhere--Butterfly Coterie Collage Stencil and Butterfly Coterie Collage Die Together
by Anne Thompson

Butterflies are flitting everywhere on today's card where I used the Butterfly Coterie Collage Stencil 88617 for the background butterflies and the Butterfly Coterie Collage die butterflies on top of the stenciled ones to create a card suitable for any occasion.


materials used


to make this card

  • start with a piece of white cardstock and attach the Butterfly Coterie Collage Stencil on top with washi tape
  • use fingertip dauber to add VersaFine Clair Tulip Red ink over the stencil


  • trim the stenciled panel 3 1/4 X 4 1/2
  • die cut the Butterfly Coterie Collage die using one of the coral plaid papers
  • add the die cut butterflies on top of the stenciled ones (I used glue dots on the bottom wing portions so I could bend the upper wing part up a bit)
  • using the dauber add more smudgy ink around the edges of the panel and then use the ink directly from the pad around the outer edge
  • add clear Fairy Drops to the centers of the wings


  • cut a piece of another coral plaid paper 4 X 5 1/4 and add it to the front of the notecard
  • attach the butterfly panel to the front of the notecard


This card is appropriate for any number of occasions, so I will wait to add an appropriate sentiment when I know where and when it is going out.  I'm also going to try this design  with in other color combinations and with floral background papers.  So many possibilities!

Happy Crafting!
