Coaster Butterfly

A card for two activities going on today at Papertrey Ink.  The first is an anniversary challenge to win another awesome prize package-to make a card with both a butterfly and leaves.  The second is for Make It Monday...to get creative with coasters!


Stamped an oval with the sentiment and leaves from Harvest Berries.  Added a butterfly from the Love Lives Here die collection made with a coaster...


I die cut 2 butterflies from the coaster and then spritzed each with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist.  While they were wet, I peeled them into layers on the edges, leaving the center intact.  Then I stacked the two on top of each other and adhered them together!  Easy peasy fun with coasters :)!

Supplies:
Stamps:  Harvest Berries, PTI
Paper:  PTI Kraft, White, Scarlet Jewel and also an older SEI Collection of patterned paper (maybe Dill Blossom?)
Ink:  Fresh Ink in Strawberry, PTI Scarlet Jewel, Tim Holtz Antique Linen Distress ink, Memento Tuxedo Black, VersaColor Umber, and VersaMagic Wheat
Other:  PTI coaster, Love Lives Here butterfly die, Spellbinders oval die, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, Sakura Stardust glitter pen, A Muse Studio ribbon, twine

What a great idea for the butterfly made from the coaster. It's scrumptious! I just ordered coasters from PTI and wondered what I was going to do with them. Great site; glad to find you!

Love this! The sentiment coaster, if you will, is just glorious! I love the gradient stamping and how the actual sentiment is so wonderfully crisp and contrasty. Gosh, it works well. I have a few packs of coasters yet to see the business side of a die. Must try this. Killer card Miss Kelly.

Gorgeous! I love the layers on the butterfly - how you peeled them, super smart, makes it so soft looking! And I love how you added the leaves at the bottom of the sentiment, perfect touch!

This is a beautiful card, and I love what you did with the coasters to make that beautiful butterfly.
