Pretty Little Studio: Bohemian Butterflies

Friday, June 28, 2019

Welcome to the weekend, y'all!  I'm just stopping in, as promised, to share a pretty, little collection of mini cards that happen to be up on the Pretty Little Studio blog today.
I'm going to do things a little differently this go around and get a little up close and personal with each of these cutie patooties before getting down to the nitty-gritty of them all.  So, just sit back and enjoy the next, little, picture walk.
I won't hash out the details and products for each individual creation, as they're all made in a similar fashion, and the goodies are all linked below; but I will give you an overview of how they were created.  I started these cards by cutting 3-1/2" x 7" strips from clear 8" x 8" paper, including Rainbow Grid, Bright Side, Good Times, and Over the Rainbow, to serve as my 3-1/2" square, card bases.
I then folded 2" x 4" prints, from the Bohemian Dreams and Sunny Memories collections, in half and adhered them to the front centers of the printed, clear, card bases.  This is where my brief wishes will be written to each recipient.
I then topped each 2" x 4" print, horizontally, with a Label It Die Cut, as well as an April 2019 Freebie butterfly, and speckled them with Pure Black and Titanium White, acrylic paints.  A length of white string, tied in a bow and tucked under the right-side, butterfly wing, and sprinkling of Primrose, Sunsational, and Seaspray Sequins, as well as Falling Leaves Sequin Mix and Lovely Clear Confetti, complete the look.
To cover the adhesive coming through the backside of the clear front of the card face, I also trimmed one end off more 2" x 4" Bohemian Dreams and Sunny Memories Swatch Paper Pack prints and adhered them in the centers of the inside, front, clear covers and showing through the back.
I just love how these minis turned out!  Thanks so much for humbling me with a visit!  Have a wonderful weekend, friends!
