The Paper Players #291 | Clean-and-Simple Challenge : Butterflies


Today I want to share a super quick and easy card that I created which fits in with this weeks creative challenge over on The Paper Players blog.

This week is the Clean-and-Simple Challenge #291 : Butterflies

Here is the bright and cheerful card I am entering in the challenge:

This one was super easy to create. The bright rainbow background was created with washi tape. I just grabbed the bright tapes out of my washi collection and stuck them down to a piece of white cardstock, which was then stuck to my card front with double sided tape.

The gorgeous butterfly was cut from white cardstock using my Big Shot and the medium sized butterfly from the Butterflies Thinlits die set from Stampin' Up! and adhered to the washi tape background with 2 small glue dots under the body of the butterfly.

The sentiment used is a favourite of mine. It was stamped in Tempting Turquoise and comes from the Stampin' Up! Label Love stamp set and was punched out with the coordinating Artisan Label punch. Both of these items are sadly retired, however any shaped sentiment would work in their place. The sentiment was also adhered to the washi tape background with a glue dot.

I had lots of fun creating this card and just looking at the bright colours makes me smile. I hope my card brings a smile to your face too.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you come back and visit me again soon.
