3-D Butterfly Card by Jenny Gropp
January 21, 2014
Jenny Gropp shares how she made this beautiful 3-D Butterfly card.
Jenny used Blank Canvas #H9216, Two Bunnies #H1948, Happiness is #D14201
,Fence Border #DIE08-J, Square Shaker Frame #DIE002-Z, Pocket Watch DIE088-R, Fancy Butterfly DIE059-N
I do love to pull out the Copics for an image like this! This is a Gary Robertson image called Two Bunnies. Scenes like this are a favorite of mine and others that are colorers. And I also know not everyone wants to sit and color for a long time, so I wanted to show that you can always change up your image. I cut this image right in half...which cut my coloring time right in half too! In the background I stamped the new Canvas Background with the Happiness is a Butterfly sentiment.
Here you can see the other half of the image.
Above you can see the Copic Markers I used to color the image. I stamped the butterfly a second time so I could pop it up on the panel adding some dimension.
Using the Pocket Watch Die I found the perfect little die cut to use for my butterfly body!
On the inside.... you can see I cut the fancy butterfly out of the white liner paper and then backed the opening with printed paper. I cut the butterfly again in brown to pop in to place. You can see below the finished inside.
I also used the Fence Border Die along the left side. I cut off the fence post tops and then wove a patterned paper strip through it.
