VIDEO | Altenew CAF Butterfly Bush Happy Hello

Hello there, I am over on the Altenew Blog and YouTube Channel today, sharing a card using the Craft-A-Flower Butterfly Bush Layering Die Set, which is out today. This beautiful set features a butterfly bush plant, also known as a buddleja/buddleia, plus two beautiful butterflies. 

PLEASE NOTE: This post contains affiliate links. Please see below for my full disclosure.

I started off my card by die cutting the layers of the Altenew Craft-A-Flower Butterfly Bush Layering Die Set from Altenew Gradient Cardstock Sets. The flowers themselves were cut from New Purple, the leaves from Green Meadows, the stem from Coffee Break (Mocha) and the butterfly from Summer Afternoon (Buttercream). The flower and leaves were layered up and adhered together using Altenew 2 in 1 Precision Glue Pen

I took a panel of white cardstock and splattered Altenew Jet Black Ink Spray on top with a paint brush. It was set aside to dry before adhering to an A2 white card base with Altenew Glue Tape. The leaves and stem were added on top, followed by the flower head. I took the sentiment from the Altenew Sentiment Strips 3 Stamp Set and stamped it on to white cardstock using Altenew Obsidian Pigment Ink

It was die cut out using the sentiment tag die in the Altenew Terrific Tags Die Set. I also cut another from black cardstock. They were adhered to the card with Altenew Instant Dimension Foam Tape and a small twine bow added on top. I added ink blending to the butterfly with Altenew Golden Sunset Crisp Dye Inks and added a vellum layer on top, before adhering to the card. 


Here is the video showing how I made the card:
