How to Create a Stunning Alcohol Ink Butterfly Birthday Card: A Step-by-Step Tutorial

Thank you so much for joining me for this How to Create a Stunning Alcohol Ink Butterfly Birthday Card: A Step-by-Step Tutorial, Let's jump right in.

I started by die-cutting the lacy layers dies the bottom layer with Hammermill cardstock and the top layer with Yupo, I then added alcohol ink on the Yupo layer in three colours Purple Twilight, Tranquil, and Elixir, I worked between the inks and some blending solution until I was happy with the blend. Next, I die-cut the butterflies the bottom layer from some heavy-weight vellum and the top layer from some white glitter cardstock, Adhering them in the center allowing the wings to move freely.

All that was left was to adhere the layers, I used liquid glue for the added wiggle time and adhered the panel to the base with some foam tape for a little added dimension. I added a gem in the center of each butterfly for a little added shimmer and shine and called this card done. I hope you like how they came together as much as I do, and you give this design a try.
