Butterfly Wishes

Hello friends, thanks so much for visiting!  Today I have a quick card to share with you using layered Spellbinders Dies and one of my all time favourite butterflies from Penny Black inc.

My card base has been created by cutting/embossing two Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels Forty Etched Diesscoring one at 1.5 cm from the top, fold the scored section forward.  Apply double sided tape to the section that is folded forward and attach the second die cut - making sure to line up the patterned edges to form card base.

Cut/emboss one Nestabilities Labels Forty Decorative Elements Etched Dies using Graphic 45  Couture Collection patterned paper, popping up onto the card base using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares.   Cut.emboss one Nestabilities Oval Ironwork Etched Dies #2 (#1 being the smallest); adhere to the centre of the card front.

Stamp one butterfly from the Penny Black Inc. Social Butterfly stamp set using Imagine Versafine Ink in Vintage Sepia and coloured using Memento ink in Teal Zeal and has been popped up using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares. 

The sentiment is from Penny Black Incspecial wishes stamp set and has been stamped using Teal Zeal ink, trimmed with a dovetail cut into each end dovetailed and popped up using 3D Foam Squares.   Trim the Want2Scrap Swirls Finesse - LeCreme and adhere along the bottom of the card front.
