Of course, Pink Cat Studio has some awesome new digi's for sale today!! Butterflies!! They are just gorgeous - you can shop for them here. I decided to make a set of 4 cards and a Pizza Box to hold them using the Pretty Butterfly Side Image. (For the cards, I used the Word Art Image and for the top of the box, I used the plain image and then the sentiment from the Dots & Delights: Sentiments image set.Here is the link to the Pizza Box Tutorial. The cards measure 3.75 x 3.75 and the box measures 4.5 x 4.5. I altered the tutorial dimensions a little because I have 4x4 envelopes and it was a tight squeeze getting them in the orig. box, b/c it measures 4x4.
I used some Pink Bazzill and Close to Cocoa cardstock along with some Basic Grey Porcelain DP. I stitched the DP to the Cocoa cardstock using my sewing machine. I pulled put my octagonal nesties along with a Martha Stewart punch. I airbrushed some R21 on the image panel.
Here is a close-up of the box top. I printed the butterfly image 3 times and layered the wings for dimension. I colored everything with Copics and added lots of clear Stickles to her wings. For the lid, I printed the sentiment separate and cut it out with a tag Nestie and added some Mellow Moss ribbon (SU).
Here is a view of the inside - the cards fit nicely after I altered the dimensions. Here is a close-up of the card. I did not layer the wings, but colored them the same and added the glitz!
I think this will make a nice friend or teacher gift. Hope this project inspired you to use some butterflies and create something beautiful! Thanks for stopping by!
