Love at first flight! by Sylvie @Kaliscards

Hello Crafty friends,

If you missed my post last week during our IG hop, here is what I created with the new Merakulous Mini slimline die with white and holographic cardstock

Today's project is about reusing the leftovers from this card. I decided to use only the biggest wing, but there a few more you could reuse from the die cut.

And because two tutorials in one is even better, I'll start by telling you how I created the first version

At the back of my holographic cardstock, I adhered a double-sided adhesive sheet. This is totally optional, but such a time saver for the next steps!

I then die cut the holographic cardstock with the Merakulous Mini slimline die.
I also die cut the Merakulous Mini slimline die from white cardstock.

Time to assemble the card! I prepared a card base and adhered the white frame.

I then placed the holographic wings inside the white frame. This is where the double-sided adhesive sheet comes in handy, because you can quickly and easily place each piece from the adhesive release paper to your card without having to use glue and make a puzzle!

I then stamped the sentiments from the Wingman stamp set. I wanted the sentiment to follow the curves of the wing. In order to do this, I used a stamp press and a piece of acetate to position the stamps and bend them to the desired curve, before closing the door of the stamp press, to pick up the stamp.

And that's it. How fast was it?


For the second card, I cut a regular A2 front panel and blended Distress oxides Tumbled glass, Salty ocean and Prize ribbon and let it dry.

Meanwhile, I stamped the butterfly from the Wingman stamp set and colored with Copic markers. I also added highlights on her cheek with a white gel pen.
I used the coordinating dies to cut the butterfly.

I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment from the same stamp set. Be careful to leave enough space for both butterflies.

I then adhered the holographic wing at the top and used 3D foam to adhere the butterfly below the sentiment.


Hope you liked this dual tutorial. Thank you for stopping by and have a great day!
