This artist trading card is for a butterfly themed swap.
- The stiff card I am using as the based is repurposed packaging. The cardstock already had a crease in it – I was just waiting for some reason to use it. Giving the illusion of lift and flight seemed perfect for a butterfly.
- The background paper was something I received in another swap. It has the right feel and colors for a butterfly.
- The butterfly is a Silhouette file. I cut it out as is (top). The one for the back I deleted all the interior pieces and then cut it out from coordinating paper. I glue the edge of the top butterfly to the bottom butterfly and “poped out” as allowed.
- One pink and two clear gems were glued on.
- I chomped the corners.
