Vintage Butterfly


Our challenge this week is Back to Nature.  Cheery Lynn has some fabulous butterfly, dragonfly, bird and various other critter dies so I thought I would play along.  I just love the new A2 frames that Cheery Lynn released; you can mix and match them with stunning results.  For my card I began with a base using the largest die from my A2 Frames Rectangle Scalloped Set of 7.  My next layer is the beautiful Fiona's Magic Mirror.  Next came the second largest die from my Dutch Daisy Boutique Stacker A2 Frame set of 4. I used the matching die from the A2 Frames set to trim it out.   And the last layer is the smallest die from my Lords and Commons Boutique Stacker A2 Frame set of 4; again trimmed out with the matching A2 Frames die.  Before assembling my card, I added some color with Antique Linen Distress ink.


Lastly I added the nature element from my Small Exotic Butterflies #2 with Angel Wings set.  I added more Distress ink and then using spray adhesive, glued the angel wing to the butterfly.  After gluing it down, I bent the wings up for some added dimension.  Finished card is 4.25 x 5.5 inches.
