Layered Butterfly Cards - Simon Says Stamp April 2021 Card Kit

Good morning! I'm back one more time with a couple more cards using the BRAND NEW April 2021 Simon Says Stamp Card Kit - Friendly Flowers! This kit is the perfect floral menagerie! The included stamp set by the same name some lovely sentiments and gorgeous floral images, there is some BEAUTIFUL pattern papersweet stickers - that's all not to mention the cardstock, envelopes, and more!

First up, this card is so simple, but totally dreamy with that lovely pattern paper!

I mostly just trimmed down the pattern paper to make this card - layering everything together, and curling up the edges a bit for some dimension - and leaving a white border along the outer edges of the card.

Sentiment is from the stamp set in the kit, heat embossed on a bit of black cardstock, hand trimmed to a banner shape, then mounted with foam adhesive.

Finished off with a tiny bow tied from jute string and glued on the top butterfly.

Second card had a few more layers and steps - but still made use of some more of the pattern paper! It was so gorgeous, I wanted to use it all!

I used a panel of vellum to add my stamping - the florals are from the stamp set, heat embossed in white and stamped off the top and bottom edges. Sentiment was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink, then heat embossed with clear powder. So much easier to work with than black embossing powder!

Layered that over the panel of pattern paper, adding tiny dots of liquid glue in strategic locations behind the flowers, and also directly behind where I added the bow. The bow was created with more jute string, and I added one of the pretty mini flair embellishments from the kit over the top.
