Always on the look out for a beautiful card that is easy, fast and eye catching when I saw this post from Mary Fish on Pinterest I couldn’t wait to give it a try. These butterfly’s are cut using just 2 thinlits, one for the back and one for the front.
I began with a Gray Granite card base , added a rectangle of Whisper White and Mango Melody. Cut the Background butterflies from Vellum card stock and use Basic Black for the top. Use your Embossing Buddy on a scrap of Basic Black card stock, stamp the sentiment with Versa Mark, cover with White Embossing Powder and heat emboss then use the Traditional Label Punch to cut it out. Pop the sentiment up with dimensional’s, and add the Mango Melody Enamel dots.
For the inside I used the super cool bubbles and a butterfly from the Beauty Abounds stamp set.
The envelope is lined with the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper using the envelope thinlit from the Beautiful Layers Thinlits.
