Get ready to embark on a journey to create an A2-sized card adorned with delightful butterflies. So, grab your watercolor markers, stamps, and let’s dive right in!
How to make this card you can watch here or on Studio Katia Youtube channel.
For this project, we’ll be crafting a lovely A2-sized card featuring an enchanting butterfly design. To begin, gather your materials, including Butterflies Stamp Set – Studio Katia, watercolor markers (I used Karin markers), a white A2 watercolor (Canson) card panel, a Heart confetti stencil – Studio Katia , red distress ink, black cardstock, white embossing powder, liquid glue, and some matching color pearls from Studio Katia.
Step 1: Color the Stamp Butterflies: Using watercolor markers, color the butterfly stamp with two or more vibrant hues.
Step 2: Stamp the Butterfly Background: Press the colored stamp onto the white A2 watercolor card panel to create a stunning background with butterflies of different sizes.
Step 3: Add Heart Confetti Stencil: Place a heart confetti stencil over the background and gently apply red distress ink through it to add a scattering of hearts between the butterflies.
Step 4: Heat Emboss the Sentiment: Stamp the chosen sentiment on black cardstock using embossing ink, sprinkle white embossing powder, and heat it until melted to create a raised sentiment.
Step 5: Embellish with Colorful Pearls: Attach matching colored pearls strategically using strong liquid glue to add dimension and elegance to the card.
With vibrant colors, intricate designs, and heartfelt sentiments, your card is sure to bring joy to its recipient. Enjoy the creative process and continue to make unique and personalized cards that leave a lasting impression. Happy crafting!
