Butterfly Gala Circle Card

Stampin' Up! Butterfly Gala Birthday Card

Set butterflies free to brighten someone’s day!

I love this Bundle from Stampin’ Up! By using bright inks, the coordinating Punch and gorgeous photopolymer stamps, you can create joyful cards quickly and easily!

Here’s how I made this card:
  • Start with a 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ piece of Whisper White cardstock, score at 4″ and fold in half to create your base card.
  • Cut a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Pineapple Punch cardstock and layer onto the base card.
  • Cut a 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″ piece of Pineapple Punch Designer Paper. Using your 2″ circle punch, punch a circle from the bottom right of the Designer Paper.
  • On a scrap piece of Pineapple Punch cardstock, punch out a 2″ circle; set aside for use on another project.
  • Line the 2-1/4″ Circle Punch up with the cardstock that you just punched the circle out of and punch so that you now have a “ring”. Adhere this ring around the 2″ circle on the Designer Paper.
  • Adhere a 3″ x 3″ piece of Whisper White cardstock on the back side of the Designer Paper so that it covers the circle on the front. Adhere Designer Paper to the base card.
  • On a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock, stamp the Butterflies using Black ink. Using sponge daubers, color in both butterflies using Pineapple Punch ink, then add a bit of Grapefruit Grove in the center, and finally put a small amount of Lovely Lipstick in the center.
  • Punch out the butterflies. Stamp the butterfly body using Black ink. Adhere the butterflies in the circle on the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • On a scrap piece of white cardstock, stamp the sentiment in Black ink and punch out using the 1-1/4″ Circle Punch. Adhere to a 1-3/8″ scallop circle that you’ve punched from a scrap of Pineapple Punch cardstock. Adhere the 2 together with Dimensionals and then adhere to the card.
  • Optional: color 3 large Pearls with the Pineapple Punch Blend and adhere to card randomly. Tip: it’s easier to color the Pearls with the Brush marker tip while they’re still secured to the original packaging.

This card takes a bit more work than my normal cards, but thanks to punches, it goes pretty quickly. I hope you’ll try it and let me know how it works for you!
