How To Emboss A Slimline Card & Beautiful Butterfly Wedding Card

Sharing is caring!

Hi! Thank you for joining me all week as I’m sharing handmade projects using Stampin Up’s Butterfly Brilliance special release bundle. I’ve had such an enjoyable time all week playing around with different ways to use this set. As I was developing these ideas, I got to thinking about the lovely butterflies from this set and the thought of spring and new beginnings. Those thoughts led me to create this slimline butterfly card perfect for bridal showers and weddings. The wings on the butterflies are so intricate and delicate, and I’ve combined them with embossed Pearlescent paper for a simple yet stunning handmade card. Let’s take a look at how to make this card, and while we’re at it I’ll share a tip for how to emboss a card front for a slimline card when your embossing folder isn’t large enough.

Embossing A Slimline Butterfly Card

Embossing a slimline card can be a challenge if you don’t have a specialty embossing folder. Most embossing folders are simply not long enough to emboss 8 or more inches of paper all at once. What I did for this card was cut the large paper for the card front into two pieces, and I hid the cut behind the center butterfly. To see exactly how I did this, take a look at my tutorial video.

Slimline Butterfly Card

To begin making this slimline butterfly card, you’ll first want to prepare a few things. See the list below for measurements.

Measurements:

  • Blackberry Bliss Card Base measuring 7″ x 8 1/2″ scored and folded in half at 3 1/2″
  • 2 Pieces of Pearlescent Paper measuring 3 3/8″ x 8 3/8″. Emboss one of them as instructed.
  • Die cut solid butterflies and overlays

Next, let’s talk about how to assemble the card.

Assembling the Card:

Start by attaching the embossed Pearlescent paper to the card base. Next, build the die cut butterflies by adhering the detailed cut outs to the solid outlined butterflies. Attach these pieces to the card using dimensionals. You can use some linen thread behind the center butterfly like I did, if you like. Once attached, pearl embellishments and a greeting can be added for finishing touches.
