White on White
I love the look of white on white, whether it is shimmer white or flat, there is something soothing and elegant about it. I have left the sentiment for the inside of this card, thinking it could be used for a wedding, anniversary, or even a sympathy card.
I embossed the front of the card and with a different folded embossed a piece measuring 1 1/2" x 4 1/4", taping whisper white satin ribbon (134549_ over the seams. Cut a doily (129399) in half and glue to the card.
With the Butterfly Thinlits (LOVE these! #137360), cut out the middle one and attach it to the card. (If you add wax paper between the die and cardstock, it will come out easier.) Add the wax paper image to the top of the cardstock butterfly. I think it really adds to the reality of the butterfly. (With or without the wax paper, use folded up dryer sheet on top of the cardstock before cutting. The die cut will stick to the dryer sheet and you can peel it off carefully, leaving all those little cutouts on the dryer sheet.)
Punch out a 1 3/4" scalloped circle (119854). Using the paper snips (103579) cut a wavy spiral, about 1/4" wide, starting from the outside working to the inside. Roll from the outside to the inside onto a Quilling tool, scoring tool, toothpick, or something similar. Glue the end to the flower to hold the shape and glue to the center of the butterfly body.
Hope you have a great day and thank you so much for stopping by!
