Papertrey Ink April Release - Day 3 - Butterfly Folk, Botanical Bounty + Bold Borders: Flare

Welcome back for more of this month's Papertrey Ink Release Countdown. Day 3 is filled with gorgeous butterflies, stunning florals and a new Bold Borders die!

**All of the new products will be available April 15th at 10pm EST!**

Up first are two new $15 butterfly sets ... Butterfly Folk and Butterfly Folk Outlines. The detail put into these is simply beautiful and both are filled with a wide variety of not only butterflies, but also sweet florals. For my card today I used a mix of both sets.

I started by die-cutting a white panel using the new Noted Simply Stitched die (that will be released on the 15th with all of the of the other new product), On that panel I stamped one of the butterflies from the Butterfly Folk Outlines set in Sweet Blush. I set that aside and moved onto my die-cut butterflies.

Using the Butterfly Folk stamp and die collection, I stamped and die-cut the trio in Sweet Blush, Berry Sorbet and Melon Berry. Those were then popped up onto my stamped white panel with dimensional foam.

In the center of each butterfly I added stamped and die-cut flowers and leaves, again from the Butterfly Folk stamp and die collection. The sentiment is from Kindness Counts. That was stamped in white onto True Black cardstock and then popped up between the two butterflies with dimensional foam.
My second card today was created with the new Botanical Bounty floral set. I love, love, love florals and this set is just beautiful. I'm so looking forward to spending more time creating with it. This card also features the new, and oh so awesome, Bold Borders: Flare die.

Kraft, Pure Poppy, Raspberry Fizz and Berry Sorbet are the colors I chose to create with for this card. I started by die-cutting the Bold Borders: Flare die in Kraft cardstock. I attached that to my white card base and then die-cut another border in Raspberry Fizz. I adhered all of the Raspberry Fizz dots inside the negative spaces in the Kraft. 

After stamping and die-cutting all of my flowers, from Botanical Bounty, I attached them with dimensional foam and then moved onto my sentiment. The 'happy' is part of the Bold Borders: Flare die. I die-cut that out of Berry Sorbet and then again, popped it up with more dimensional foam. Mother's Day is from Simple Stems.

I hope you enjoyed what I created for today and that I've inspired you just a little bit. For a lot more inspiration be sure to pop on over to the Papertrey Ink blog to see what the rest of the team has created for today. All of their projects are simply amazing!

Hope your day is a happy one. I'll see you right back here tomorrow with lots more to share!




  1. Hi Melissa! Your stamped background is perfect for your very pretty butterfly card. And I LOVE how you added the colorful "dots" in your Happy Mother's day card, what a great way to tie the design together. And Melissa- I wanted to add how much I LOVED your use of color in yesterday's BEAUTIFUL post!! I hope you have a great day! :)
