I absolutely LOVE the new Butterfly thinlits (137360) in the new Occasions catalog! This card uses all three! It also has a corresponding stamp set (Butterfly Basics, wood-138813, clear-138816, or photopolymer-137154). These are also sold in a bundle for a 15% savings, PLUS if you are purchasing the wood or clear bundles, you qualify for a free gift from the Sale-a-bration selection! Even the photopolymer bundle puts you very close.
For this card, I used a Daffodil Delight card base (8 1/2" x 5 1/2" scored at 4 1/4"). Cover the front with a mat from the Moonlight Designer Series Paper (133701), then using the larger butterfly die, cut from the cover (the die cut can be used for another project). It is also cut from Basic Black cardstock, then covered with a layer of Crystal Effects (101055). With a piece of Watercolor paper (122959), dampen it down with water, then brush small amounts of ink onto it. Once the large butterfly is dry, place it on an adhesive sheet (133722), then onto the dry colored paper and cut it out. Close the card and glue the butterfly to the inside of the card through the opening made earlier. Cut the middle sized butterfly out of Calypso Coral and the solid one out of Daffodil Delight, stacking them on top of the larger one. Add three small Rhinestone Basic Jewels (119246) to the body of the solid cut out.
