Single layer cards sound easy, but can be some of the most difficult cards to make! When you are using just one sheet of card stock you’ve got to add enough interest with your stamped images so that the card isn’t boring.
This butterfly card turned out simply gorgeous – it looks even better in person than on your computer screen. Well, I guess most cards do. It’s the perfect card to make a bunch of, you can even change the colors and greeting to have a variety of butterfly cards. Bundle them up and they make a great gift!
A few tips for how to make this card:
- Cut your card stock the long way. It will measure 4-1/4″x 11″. Fold it in half and you’ve got a card that opens up instead of to the side.
- Start stamping the largest butterflies first. You can then fill in the spaces with the smaller butterflies.
- Begin stamping at the bottom. Leave enough room for white space and a greeting on the bottom. Work your way up the middle and then out to the edges.
- Stick with one color. Monochromatic cards are so elegant!
