Caring Butterflies

Where to begin? First of all I am running out of titles for
designs that are not repeats. I may just switch to numbers, LOL.

This card has a plain white base. The bottom two layers
are a soft peach with a tapestry texture in white.
The texture was created using an embossing folder.
These ovals were place on the card with the larger
being raised off the card using paper egg carton as the "pop dot".
A flourish from Bosscut was used in the center of the
larger oval.

The ovals were die cut using Spellbinders beaded oval dies.
Another Spellbinders die, Nesting Ovals was used to cut
the soft peach inside the beaded ovals. It was textured with
Cuttlebug"s dotted swiss embossing folder.

A Fancy Tag die from Spellbinders was used to
cut the layer underneath the computer generated phrase.
The phrase and the peach scalloped layer under it were
cut with more Spellbinders dies, this time the Nesting Ovals.
I love using ovals in my designs, they are so pleasing to the eye.

The butterfly is a Cheery Lynn Designs butterfly cut from
highlighting foil (found at most beauty supply stores) attached
to card stock or text weight papers. A light weight card stock
will cut much better than a heavy one and
enable you to slightly fold the wings up, giving an
appearance of a real butterfly that has just landed.

The flowers are punched with Punch Bunch punches.
The paper is card stock painted with Lumiere's.
They are then shaped and "diamonds" placed
in the centers.

The smaller butterflies are from an EK Success
Martha Stewart punch. They are also from
highlighting foil.
