Hello! Manasa here with you today!
For my project this month, I wanted to share an easy handmade card idea using warm spring colors.
- Neenah Grana Grossa Cardstock
- Translucent Vellum
- American Crafts Autumn Variety Pack
- Butterfly Die Cut
- Texture Paste
- Dot Stencil
To begin, I cut my card to size. I intended to create a mini slimline card, so I cut my cardstock to 6 ½ x 6 ¼ inches. Score the card and fold in half on the 6 ½ inch side.
Pull out your favorite watercolors and our Neenah Grana Grossa paper. This cardstock is thick, and holds ink, making it perfect for our next technique. Without overthinking, create a few watercolor blobs on your paper.
Once the watercolor is dry, use your favorite die/cutfile to cut out butterflies as shown below. I also cutout a few butterflies from vellum for layering.
For some more added interest, I used texture paste and a polka dot stencil to create some texture on my card base. This is an easy way to dress up plain cardstock. Just lay the stencil over the cardstock and smear the texture paste onto it. Lift the stencil off the paper and let dry.
Assemble your card as shown in the picture. To finish off the card, I used some white plaint splatters. I also used the Autumn Cardstock from AC Cardstock to create an envelope for my card.
If you recreate this card, please share it with us on Instagram or Facebook! We love to see customer creations.

The stencil is a generic polka dot stencil I picked up from Tuesday Morning a long time ago. The paste is Tim Holtz Texture paste.
Where do you find the dot stencil and the paste? Love the butterfly card. I’m fairly new to card making but learning many techniques. Thanks for any information you can send my way. I love the AC paper you carry.
Awesome card. Thanks so much for sharing.
