Pink Cat Studio Digi Release, Butterfly Template and Purse Box Tutorial

Hello Friends!!! Happy Thursday to all of you! Well, today is Thursday and the release of Pink Cat Studio's digi stamps! Yay! As you can see the images are just so darn cute!!

I really had a lot of fun creating my cards and purse box below. If you scroll down to the bottom, I provided a template for the butterfly and the link to the tutorial to create the purse box posted below.

To add the glitter on the monkey, I used Stickles glitter. Just a little warning when using Stickles on digital images. . . .don't add Stickles to the black print or it'll smear and bleed. When applying the Stickles stick within the lines and don't add too much of it.

Card Details:

Stamp: Pink Cat Studio Monkey Valentines
Paper: K&Co Designer paper, SU Creamy Caramel, Pretty in Pink
Ink: Copic Markers
Accessories: Pebbles Inc. ribbon, ric rac, Nestabilities, EK Success border punch, Stickles Glitter, buttons

I decided to create a gift set for my next project. Last week I had created a tutorial for the purse box. The tutorial shows a heart shaped shaker front but instead of a heart, I used a butterfly for this purse box. I used my Cricut Expression and Sure Cuts Alot 2 program to cut the butterfly. If you have SCAL2 program, I provided the template so you can cut it using your Cricut machine. If you don't have a Cricut, I provided an outline version as well so you can cut the template using scissors.
Template Instructions:

To print the template, click on the photo and right click on the image then click "save image as". Save the photo as a picture file. If you have SCAL2 program, use the trace feature to upload to the program. Resize as desired. The template measures approximately 5.25 x 5.25" which fits nicely on the box.

If you don't have a SCAL2 program, save the outline image as instructed above, to print, open up your Word program and insert the picture file, resize as desired and print from your Word Program. You may also print it from photo editing program.

. Rather than adhering the heart, adhere the butterfly to the purse box.

Last but not least, here is the matching card. To color the image, I used my Copic Markers. Nothing much else to the card.
