Butterfly Card by Sue K


 Hi Everyone,
Our DT Gal Sue K. has created a lovely butterfly card to share today. 
I hope you enjoy it.

Card in the gift Box
Tutorial:
Cut smooth black cardstock, 110mm x 150mm and smooth white cardstock 100mm x 145mm, layer the white onto the black with double sided tape
Cut a heart border from Blush, Cotton Candy and Lollipop cardstock, cut each one to 100mm long, attach to the card front with double sided tape. From the off cuts cut a heart from each colour.  Attach to the heart border with a foam dot. 
Stamp the sentiment using Versafine Onyx black ink.
Add a tiny rhinestone to the middle heart and the exclamation mark in the sentiment.
Using the Vivienne butterfly die, cut a butterfly from Lollipop cardstock.
Using the Darla butterfly die, cut a butterfly from smooth black cardstock.
Using the Kaleidoscope butterfly die, cut a butterfly from Cotton Candy cardstock.
Using the Moonlight butterfly die, cut a butterfly from smooth black cardstock.
Layer the Vivienne and Darla butterflies together using a small piece of foam tape, and the Kaleidoscope and the moonlight butterfly with the same.
Attach the centres of the butterflies with glue
Attach the butterflies to the card front with foam dot, bend the wings up slightly.
Add some rhinestones to the centre of the butterflies.
Attach the card front to a C6 portrait card base, top fold.

Without flattening the butterflies this card did not fit into an envelope, as we were taking it along to the wedding, I packed it into a clear acetate box, slightly bigger than the card itself and finished it off with a big juicy satin bow!
