Send love and best wishes to someone special, with Helen Kirkham’s Pointillism Butterfly Card. A fantastic project for crafters of all ages and abilities, this DIY greeting card is a great way to spend an afternoon and guarantees to put a smile on its recipient’s face. Gather up your supplies and little helpers, and get crafting.
Cut a rectangle of black card measuring 4.75 x 6.75 inches and a rectangle of white card measuring 4.50 x 6.50 inches.
Die cut the butterflies each three times and using the wet glue layer them up.
Mat and layer the white card on to the black card. Glue the three butterflies on to the white/black card topper.
Cut off the overhanging parts of the butterflies.
Using the pens dot around the outside edge of each of the butterflies. To begin with the dots should be very close together.
Continue to add the pen dots to the card, but the dots become further apart the further away from the butterflies they are.
Cut out the ‘Love and best wishes’ strip sentiment and glue it to the card. Glue the flat back pearls to the card. Glue the topper to the card blank.
Helen’s Helpful Hints: Using a sticky pick up tool will help with both picking up the flat back pearl and placing it down on to the card.
