Simple rainbow BetterPress card

Hey everyone! We hope you’re all doing well! We thought we’d write up a little blog for the recent reel we shared over on our socials, so you have all the instructions and supplies in one place 🙂

This card is so pretty, but was really quick and easy to make. I started off by masking an A2 panel of Spellbinders’ Porcelain Betterpress card with some mint tape from, around each edge. I used Time for Tea Designs’ blender brushes to ink blend a rainbow in the remaining rectangle, using the following Distress Oxide colours:

For me, it’s the Broken China into the Shaded Lilac *heart emoji*

After removing the mint tape, I positioned the Butterfly Swirl Press Plate where I wanted it on my card (so some of the butterflies would be “coloured” by the ink blending, and some would be poking out from the edges), and flipped it over so that the press plate would be positioned in the right place on the Betterpress machine.

I secured my card panel to the clear plate (the “platen”) within the A2 markers, using some of their yellow tape, then I inked up the butterflies with the Betterpress Black ink.

Then, I placed the platten onto the Betterpress base, so the four magnets in the corners click into place and ran it through my Platinum 6 machine. The debossed butterflies came out beautifully!

To add my sentiment, I repeated the same process but with the Happy Birthday sentiment from the A Little Message Sentiments Press Plate set. You could of course, place the sentiment on at the same time as the butterflies, but I wanted to play around with the positioning once the butterflies were on my page.

I then simply added my card panel to a white A2 base with some tape runner, and that was today’s card finished. I hope you enjoyed it, and we’ll be back soon with more inspiration!
