Good morning and welcome to another edition of Cards and Creations by Lori McBride. My name is Lori McBride and I’m a Stampin’ Up Independent Demonstrator from Joshua, TX.
Today, I’d like to share with you a card I created using the *Butterfly Brilliance Collection* along with just a couple extra goodies from the Annual Catalog and the January-June Mini Catalog.
From the time I saw the Butterfly Bijou 6×6 Designer Series Paper I knew I had to do an Easter card with it. The palette in this paper is stunning and absolutely perfect for spring and Easter cards and creations!!! Breathtaking beautiful!!
Our time with Purple Posy is running out and I just want to use as much of it as I possibly can before our time is up! Although technically Purple Posy isn’t even a color in the Butterfly Bijou 6×6 Designer Series Papers, there are shades of Highland Heather that make this totally possible!

This Triple Fold Card was so easy and simple to make.
Cardbase Highland Heather 4 1/4″×11″ scored at 1 3/16″, 5 1/2″ and 6 3/4″
Basic White 2 1/2″×4″ (2×)
DSP 2 1/2″×4″
Belly Band Purple Posy 1″×11″
I started off mounting the Butterfly Stamp into the Stamparatus and inking just the one butterfly in Momento Black Ink on one of my 2 1/2″×4″ pieces and using the Dies to die cut it out and hand colored it using the Stampin’ Blend Markers.
I created the Cardbase and cut all of the DSP using my Stampin’ Trimmer and adhered them down using Stampin’ Seal.
From the score lines you simply fold to create your triple fold and add your DSP with your Stampin’ Seal.
I stamped the egg basket from the Springtime Joy Stamp Set in Momento Black Ink and hand colored them with the Stampin’ Blend Markers. I stamped the Easter sentiment using the same Stamp Set in Highland Heather Classic Ink.
I created the belly band by folding over the card and pinching in place. I added a small amount of Stampin’ Seal to one side of the belly band to close. I cut off a fair amount of ribbon and adding it to the front of the belly band having added Stampin’ Seal to the back.
From a scrap of Mint Macaron I punched a Circle from the 2 1/4″ Circle Punch and from a scrap of DSP punched a Circle from the 2″ Circle Punch. I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the Butterfly and attached to the belly band with Stampin Seal.
For the final touch I added the Pastel Pearls using my Take Your Pick Tool.
