Side Stella Butterfly
by Trina Pham


Hello everyone.  Today I’m stretching the Stella Butterfly from the 2022 May release to create a simple off-the-edge standard A2 size shaped card.

Took a Bristol scrap piece measuring approximately 4.25”x5.75” from my stash and drew a line across approximately 5.5” high.  Placed the Stella Butterfly background die at an angle straddling the line so only the left wing extends beyond the line.  Partial die cut above the line like this.


Trimmed along the drawn line up to the die cut part of butterfly to get this.


Embossed the bottom portion with the Gracious Leaves 3D embossing folder (EF) to give it some dimension  


The butterfly and sentiment were die cut from alcohol marker friendly cardstock and black glossy paper.  To turn the full butterfly into a side flying one, it was cut in half and one of the antennas was cut off.  Colored them with Copic Sketch markers RV02, RV04 and RV09.  For a bit of texture, splattered the butterfly background piece with diluted white gouache paint.  To mount to the card base, the flat edge of the partial die cut butterfly was aligned with the folded end of a white top folding A2 size card base.  Measure 5.5” from the end of the butterfly wing and trimmed using a paper trimmer.  Added some clear Fairy Drops to finish.

For some reason it looks shorter than 5,5” in length in the photo, but trust me it’s not. 😂  Thank you for joining me today.  Have a wonderful week.





This is such a surprise. I love the butterfly and that embossing folder. The black glossy paper is awesome for the butterfly body and sentiment. Great design!

This is ingenious! I love this bright and beautiful butterfly landing on my favorite embossed background! Thanks for the details, Trina!

Beautiful Trina, so pretty with the off the edge butterfly ♥

Amazing card, so creative!

So pretty, Trina! Love the butterfly hanging off of the card.

Stunning card, Trina! Love the gorgeous butterfly, the off-the-edge design, and your attention to detail!

WOW! Several amazing techniques used for this card Trina. Especially love how the butterfly is off the edge at the top. Beautiful work as always.
