Yellow Butterfly Birthday Card

One of my favorite parts about summer is seeing the butterflies flutter around the yard. We typically have several little yellow/orange butterflies called Orange Sulfur in late summer. I've seen monarchs, black swallowtails and red admirals but the Orange Sulfur are one of the easiest to spot.

The butterfly was my inspiration for this Yellow Butterfly Birthday Card. It gave me another opportunity to use two of my favorite stamp sets: Watercolor Wings and Butterfly Basics both by Stampin' Up!. The dsp is retired but it's still one of my favorites,  Affectionately Yours by Stampin' Up!. Colors used on the butterfly include: Daffodil Delight, Crushed Curry and Crumb Cake. Then I heat embossed the Crumb Cake area with retired Iridescent Ice embossing powder. Other colors match the dsp and include: Watermelon Wonder, Night of Navy, Cucumber Crush and Crumb Cake. That's it! Thanks for stopping by my blog and enjoy the rest of your day!

  1. Hi Andrea, what a gorgeous card! Summer is a wonderful time to watch those beautiful butterflies, isn't it? This year the smoke in the area seems to be keeping the numbers down. Love the colours you've used and that bright and cheerful DSP in the background. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

  2. Love how you have used those Stampin Up stamps here, and I also really like that you have picked up the colors in the patterned paper for the butterfly and other embellishments. The fern is stamped in the perfect place and that background texture just makes this card pop! Great take on the challenge, thanks so much for playing along with us this week over at The Mod Squad!
