Frosted Butterflies...

I saw some beautiful vellum butterflies stickers frosted with glitter. This was my attempt to create something as beautiful. The sketch was from the HA sketches. I am missing the sentiment from the sketch. I tried to think of how to incorporate it and I decided I liked the card without a sentiment. :)

Here is a close-up of my butterflies...

Here is the final card...

  1. Cut 5" x 7" light blue cardstock. Stamp lace flower across the card using versamark. Heat emboss using iridescent/kaleidescope clear embossing powder.
  2. Stamp 5 snowflakes on vellum using versamark ink. Heat emboss the snowflakes using iridescent/kaleidescope clear embossing powder.
  3. Die Cut the snowflakes in the shape of the butterflies. Take iridescent chalk (blue) and rub it across the butterflies. Be careful as I bent my poor butterflies wings several times because I didnt' keep them flat. I rubbed with my fingers to make sure I removed the excess at the end.
  4. Cut a strip of kraft paper using a scalloped rotary cutter blade.
  5. Layer the lace and butterflies on the kraft paper.
  6. Add another strip of scalloped kraft paper and accessorize with the tiny light blue gems.
  7. Add pearls to the butterflies. Cut 1/4" of the light blue embossed cardstock to attach to the inside of the card on the end.
