Floral Wings and Bold Butterflies Framelits


No one does coordination better than Stampin’ Up! and today’s card is no exception!  Floral Wings stamp set is a photopolymer host-exclusive set in the Annual Catalog and has uber coordination factor in the various pieces of this two-step stamp set.  And Bold Butterflies Framelits along with the Big Shot will cut that sweet butterfly out just perfectly.

  • I’ve grabbed a palette of 2015-17 In Colors again, using Delightful Dijon, Cucumber Crush and Tip Top Taupe.  Gosh, will I ever get tired of these gorgeous colors?
  • Be sure to purchase a package of the 2015-17 In Color Designer Series Paper Stacks.  You’ll receive 40 sheets total, 4 each of 2 double-sided designs in the 5 new In Colors.  I’m tellin’ ya – you’ll be using this paper on every project!
  • The Gold Metallic Doily was the perfect backdrop to my butterfly, but because this is a gate-fold card, I needed that piece to be a little more substantial, so I cut a Delightful Dijon cardstock circle from my Circle Framelits and adhered them together.


  • You can see that this cards folds in half in the center, and the circle motif is what keeps the card together.  Just cut your cardstock base at 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ like usual, but then score it at 2-1/8″ and 6-3/8″.  I used my ScorePal for quick scoring.
  • You’ll want a strong adhesive to adhere half of the circle to the front of the card.  The new Tear & Tape Adhesive works perfectly for this job!  I also used it down the center of the butterfly body to adhere it to the Gold Doily, allowing the wings be free.


  • And here’s the inside of my card.  Some stamping on a Whisper White cardstock liner is another great coordinating element.

Any questions about the gate card fold?  I’d love to hear from you – just leave me a comment!
