Love Blooms Embellishment Kit: Butterfly Cards

The Love Blooms Embellishment Kit has lots of fun pieces to work with!  I still have quite a few pieces left.  The 4th card is posted on my Newsletter Projects Site and is available for all my Newsletter subscribers who register for the site after signing up for my Newsletter.

The two cards pictured are the same basic layout and just use different papers.  You can change the papers to get a totally different look.

INSTRUCTIONS:
1.  Cut your Thick Whisper White card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″.  Score and fold at 4-1/4″.
2.  Cut your patterned paper at 4-1/4″ x 4-3/4″.  Attach to card base.
3.  Cut your Rose Red or Pink Pirouette card stock at 4-1/4″ x 3-3/4″ OR 4″.  The Pink Pirouette card stock is cust at 3-3/4″ x 4-1/4″.  The Rose Red card stock is cut at 4″ x 4-1/4″.  Attach to patterned paper layer in the desired position.  Trim excess off edges if needed.
4.  Cut your Butterfly pieces.  Use the large Bold Butterfly Framelit to cut the patterned paper of your choice.  Use the medium Butterflies Thinlit to cut either a Rose Red or Whisper White Butterfly.  Glue the patterned butterfly to the Thinlit Butterfly piece.  Let dry.
5.  Cut out the “Happy” or “Hello” and “You” using the Hello You Thinlit.  I used the Precision Base Plate and a FLAT Cutting plate.  The Big Shot Die Brush helps the pieces come out a lot more quickly.
6.  Stamp the desired word(s) from the Crazy About You stamp set in Rose Red ink on a 3/8″ x at least 4″ Whisper White card stock.  Watch this Video to see how to use the Word Window Punch with longer words.  I colored the around the edge with the Rose Red Marker, or just use your ink pad to color around the edges.
7.  Lay out all your pieces on your card front.  Bend the Butterfly wings up by the body.  Attach in the desired places.  Adhesives:
~Fine Tip Glue:  Happy
~Tombow Glue:  Gold Foil Heart
~Glue Dots:  center of the Butterfly body, Sequins, Wood Heart, Pearl String
~Dimensionals:  Mother’s Day
8.  Finish the Butterfly.  You can decorate the Butterfly body with either a small wood heart and two pink enamel dots, or sequins, or even part of the pearl string.  Cut  two sets of Pearls with 8 pearls.  These become the antennas.  Use a Glue Dot to attach each end of the Antenna Pearls.
9.  Add a few sequins to the card front with Glue Dots.
