Butterflies Birthday Wishes | Julie Hickey Designs

Hi friends! Today I’m sharing these two birthday cards featuring the Layering Flutterbies Stamp & Die Set from Julie Hickey Designs and for my sentiment I have Birthday Best Wishes Stamp Set also by Julie Hickey Designs. Julie, the owner of Julie Hickey Designs, was so kind to sent me these products and I have to be honest, I’m having so much fun playing with her stamps and dies. I love that most of her stamp sets already come with the matching die, isn’t that awesome? I totally recommend everyone this brand. If you have a chance please check her account on Instagram @juliehickeydesings.

Let’s begin! I started by die cutting the three butterflies from the Layering Flutterbies Stamp dies and I placed the the negative part in the MISTI. I will be using this negative part to align the stamps with the die cuts. Then, I place back the three die cuts inside the negative part and I stamp with white ink the teal butterflies using the Layering Flutterbies Stamp.

I repeat this process but this time I stamp the turquoise butterflies with WOW! Embossing Pad and then I heat embossed them using WOW! Metallic Brass Embossing Powder.

Next, I die cut a rectangular frame out of a light blue cardstock, which will be my card base. Using the Birthday Best Wishes Stamp Set I stamped and heat embossed on this card base with WOW! Metallic Brass Embossing Powder. Then, I adhered a white folded notecard at the back using glue.

Finally, I added the butterflies die cuts on top of the background using foam tape for more dimension. I trimmed down the edges and also added some jewels for the perfect last touch.

My second card was made following the same process.

I changed the placement for my sentiment on this card and for more contrast within the butterflies I used gray cardstock that was heat embossed using WOW! Metallic Brass Embossing Powder. The other color of cardstock for the butterflies was fuchsia and I stamped on them with white ink.

Again, as my last touch I added these jewels that I think were just perfect for this background.

I hope you liked these cards and try Julie Hickey Designs products. They have a great quality and wonderful designs too. Thanks for stopping by and have a phenomenal day!

Your friend,

Karen
