Butterfly and Flower Die Cuts Embellished with Spring Buttons

When you think of spring what comes to mind?  Butterflies, flowers, beautiful weather, allergies?   Well, here in southern Nevada,  spring doesn’t seem to stay very long ’cause it jumps from like cold to hot in a snap…Ack!

Despite the limited spring weather here in the desert,  I can always resort to creating cards using spring die cut shapes that are embellished with Spring Buttons.

 Butterflies and Flowers Embellished with Spring Buttons

To make this spring card I resorted to my trusty old kraft paper as the base {I heart Kraft}, matted it with some American Crafts chevron paper and used my Silhouette to cut out the butterfly and flower die cuts from a Lori Whitlock file.

I embellished the card with green & pink twine, green wire, a stamped sentiment, faux stitching and used some cheery Spring Color Blend buttons to make my butterfly and flower die cuts pop. I can’t forget to mention the whole Glue Dots family was basically included too. Ultra Thin, Mini, Glue Lines and Pop Up Glue Dots were all used as adhesive on this Spring card.

Supplies Used:

  • BGM Spring Buttons
  • Butterfly and Flower Die Cuts
  • Pastel Cardstock and American Crafts Paper
  • 20 gauge Green Wire
  • Twine
  • White, Pink and Yellow Fine Tip Markers

I love the smell of pretty paper, drinking Chai Tea and making unique things out of whatever I can find. I'm a dollar store junkie who loves to design with Kraft paper, textures, burlap, inks, ribbons, buttons, glitter and anything that can be up-cycled. I'm excited to be a part of this Buttons Galore & More Design team. I hope my ideas inspire you.
