Hot Foil Mini Slimline Butterfly Thank you Cards | Pink Fresh Studio Small Butterflies

Updated: Nov 12, 2021


Thank you so much for stopping by to check out my Hot foiled mini slimline butterfly cards!! I had a lot of fun making these so let's jump right in.


To start I like to cut down my cardstock so I know what I am working with, I like my mini slimline cards to be 6 x 6 inches and scored at 3 inches, my gold matte is 1/8th of an inch smaller than my base, and my white panel is 1/8th of an inch smaller than my gold matte. I used a piece of 120 Lb cardstock from Simon Says Stamp to Hot foil my small butterflies on with some Polished Brass foil, they foiled beautifully!!


I used a three colour blend of copics to colour the butterflies RV11, R83 and R85 and C9 for the butterflies bodies. I cut out the butterflies with their matching die set and put a thin stip of foam tape behind the body for when I wanted to adhere them on the panel. I ran my smallest panel through my big shot with Simon Says Stamps Cyrstal Distortion embossing folder for some added texture on the background. I also heat embossed my thank you sentiment with some super fine detail gold embossing powder and trimmed them down to thin strips and adhered them flat to my panel.


All thats left now is to adhere everything, I did need to put some weight on my panel to get it to adhere to the gold matte as it has so much texture. Once everything was adhered I brought in a Spectrum noir glitter pen and coated my butterflies in sparkle. I hope you love these cards as much as I do!! If you would like a more in-depth look at how these cards came together or the hot foiling please check out the video below, I also have a full supplies list below the video in case you want to know exactly what I used.


Thank you so much for stopping by and I cannot wait to see you again soon!!
