Hello, again! I’m popping in today with a card that looks nothing like my original concept for this image, but I do love how it worked out. You see, I’ve had this Power Poppy Flowers Always digi printed and awaiting color for a while and even had the papers all picked out for it. Then along came the Dies R Us Butterflies Challenge and I remembered I’d cut this butterfly border and hadn’t used it yet and… well… put the two together, wrap some ribbon and tie a bow… Of course, I did some Copic coloring first. Kept it as summertime simple as possible. The butterfly border is Die-namites Butterfly Applique.
I punched a 1/4” hole and seated the ribbon knot into it, held in place with Aleene’s Tacky Glue. This works great for a popped up image panel. You can hardly feel the ribbon through the envelope. In the side view below you can see how the bow sits with very little dimension. You can also catch a glimpse of the inside where I stamped a little floral image from the Folk Heart set.
This card measures 4 1/2” x 6”. I should mention that whenever I pop up an entire panel like this I back up the popped panel with an extra layer of cardstock and trim it flush with the edges. It gives the panel more substance so it sits nicely on the foam mounting tape.
Again… linking up to the Dies R Us Butterflies Challenge. I’ll see you again soon!
