Stella Butterflies with Plaids and Solids
by Anne Thompson

I made two cards for today that feature the STELLA BUTTERFLY AND BACKGROUND 94635 using coordinating plaids and solids.  First up is one in shades of violet against a blue watercolor sky.

to make this card

  • paint a piece of watercolor paper with a light blue watercolor; trim to 5 1/4 X 4 when dry and adhere to the front of a white notecard
  • die cut the Stella Butterfly and Background from a piece of  violet plaid paper and again from a piece of coordinating violet cardstock from the Vibrant Violet Collection
  • put the butterflies together--I used a glue pen--one with the plaid background and the detailed plain violet one on top with the plaid body and the other with the violet background and the detailed plaid one on top with the plain violet body; add them to the notecard
  • use the smallest Clear Fairy Drops for the butterfly heads and then add a few Clear Fairy Drops in the other sizes scattered on the blue background
