You may have already seen this Monarch Butterfly card in my Facebook Live video earlier in the week, and I am really excited to share it with you on my blog!  This handstamped card features the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Gala bundle, Graceful Glass Vellum colored with Stampin’ Blends markers, and a Spectrum rainbow pad that I inked with reds, yellows and oranges to stamp the butterflies and birthday greeting!

After I started stamping all of the rainbow Spectrum pad butterflies, I had it in mind to make a Monarch butterfly and I think I succeeded with this red/orange/yellow Spectrum rainbow pad!  I made this card for someone very special celebrating a very special birthday on Monday! We are celebrating with lunch and shopping on Tuesday, and I’ll give it to her then. Yep, it’s for Cindee. 🙂

The greeting (from the Humming Along stamp set #148758) is stamped with the same Spectrum pad as the butterflies, and stamped onto a die cut from my Rose Trellis thinlit dies #148549, pg 9 of the Occasions catalog.

As I mentioned in the video, I colored on the back of the strip of Graceful Glass vellum with my Stampin’ Blends markers, then added a strip of Whisper White cardstock behind the vellum so that the leaf pattern from the Floral Romance designer paper pack wouldn’t show through.  The card is a 4-1/4″ x 11″ folded Thick Whisper White cardstock base.

I hope you enjoyed this birthday card idea!
