Butterfly 1

The card stocks used on this card are
light peach and white.
There is a very fine border of peach beneath
the textured layer. (done with embossing folder)

Spellbinder's beaded oval was cut and
embossed in white.
I attached the flat part of paper egg
cartons to the back to attain
the 3-D look.

The oval in the center of the
beaded oval is in peach also.
It was embossed with the Cuttlebug
Dotted Swiss folder.
I really do like the dainty dots on this folder.

The fragile flourishes are from
Cheery Lynn Designs Victorian Flourish
die. This die is a real pain to cut,
BUT look at the results. Just stunning.

Now for the butterfly.
The die is another Cheery Lynn Designs beauty.
It has been cut from highlighting foil.
This can be obtained from most beauty supplies.
Spray glue either text or card stock weight
paper and attach the thin foils.
We at Wild Women of the West Stampers
spent one whole Tuesday wading up foil,
unwading it and attaching to papers.
We all liked the texture of the crinkled foil
more than the plain shiny that it was
when we purchased it.
It is well worth the effort.
It is also considerably less expensive than
buying metallic papers.

Cheery Lynn also makes a matching solid butterfly
to put under the delicate lacy one.
In this case I used the light peach paper and
lightly sponged it with
Ranger's Distress Ink, Rusty Hinge.
The edges were also sponged again to darken
them even more.

I am very please with the end result
of this card making endeavor.
