Butterflies Card

The first thing I need to mention is that this design was originally done by the talented Anya over at My Creative Corner.  Here is her original post.

Since I was looking at her lovely card most of the designing was already done for me.  I'll list the products I used :)

Silhouette with Echo Park Butterfly #39307

Yellow Papers: Here & Now 6 by 6 pad Lori Whitlock & Echo Park

Butterflies embellished with Bisque colored Liquid Pearls and Yellow Stickles.  To make sure the wings will stay up and dimensional I attached the center of the butterflies with mini glue dots, and then used pop dots on both sides of the centers.  This means the wings won't get pushed flat.  It also means I couldn't put it in a regular envelope and mail it or the wings would easily become bend and smashed.

Main Pattern: Amy Tangerine Sketchbook 6 by 6 pad.  This layer is up on pop dots.  The plain yellow is flat to the card base.

Faux stitching done with Bordering Blue marker from Stampin' Up.

I used washi tape on both sides.

Thanks for visiting!
