Hello, my friends, and welcome to Guneaux Designs. I am happy that you stopped by today to see my MB Reverse Butterfly Collage Happy Birthday card. Memory Box (MB) has wonderful dies, and this is one of my favorites. I love butterflies, and seeing them on greeting cards always draws my attention. I have used the MB Reverse Butterfly Collage Die before, but as a stencil. You can see that HERE. For this card, I used the die to cut out a butterfly panel to attach over another panel that is sponged with various colors.
I used a piece of white card stock and an ODBD Double Stitched Rectangles die to cut out a frame. Using the frame and Memory Box Reverse Butterfly Collage die, I cut out the butterflies. I used the same ODBD die to cut out another piece of white card stock on which I sponged various Stampin’ Up! inks. Subsequently, I dabbed All Purpose Ink (Frost White) over the panel with a piece of plastic wrap. This photo shows the result.
I love the effect of using the All Purpose Frost White Ink! I think it adds so much to a piece of sponged card stock.
I attached the sponged panel beneath the butterfly panel, and then attached both to the card base. I think this qualifies as a Clean and Simple card. I hope it does as I am submitting it to a Splitcoaststampers Clean and Simple Challenge. Kathy Curry is the hostess of the challenge, and she asked for participants to “show me your favorite winged things this week”. Butterflies are one of my favorite “winged things”.
To finish the card, I added a “Happy Birthday” sentiment from the ODBD Seeds of Today stamp set. I used the smallest of the ODBD Ornate Ovals die to create a frame for the sentiment, and added it to the card using double-sided foam tape.
