Here’s the card that I created:
The die is one piece and cuts all six butterflies out at once. Then I placed the individual butterflies (face up) on a 5 1/4″ x 4″ piece of card stock. DO NOT ADHERE THEM. I moved them around until I was satisfied with how they looked. Then I covered them with a piece of Press’n Seal wrap. This holds them in place.
I placed the butterflies face down on my craft table and placed stamping dimensionals all over the butterflies so they would appear to float on the card front. I removed the backings and then flipped it carefully on the 5 1/4″ x 4″ piece of white card stock that I arranged them on earlier.
I love the look of the floating butterflies. Here’s another shot of the card I made as well as one made by die cutting the butterflies from the Butterfly Bijou DSP.
Here are the NEW products that will be available starting March 2. Along with a beautiful pack of patterned papers. You will not be disappointed by the colors and patterns.
