Tri-Fold with Butterflies

Tri-Fold with Butterflies

It’s always fun to combine a good sketch challenge with a great color combo, chosen by Kristina Werner (Color Inspiration #21). The tri-fold design was suggested in a challenge on SCS by fellow Stampin’ Up! demonstrator Patty Bombyk. I started out with a 10-1/2″ x 6″ piece of Kiwi Kiss card stock, scored twice to create the three 3-1/2″ panels. Two 1″ strips of Sweet Always Designer Series Paper were adhered to the card. The Whisper White panels, from left to right, measure: 2-1/2″ x 2″, 1-1/2″ x 3-1/2″, and 2-3/4″ x 2″.

The main butterflies were stamped with Regal Rose and Pacific Point inks, cut out and adhered with dimensionals. The three Rose Red flowers in the right hand bottom corner have white faux brads (I punched 1/8″ circles out of Whisper White card stock and glued them to the flowers).

Thanks for stopping by!
