The cards that I make are typically A2 (4 1/2" x 5 1/2"). Two of the 3 cut out butterflies from the Fun Stampers Journey Artful Butterfly Die Templates fit perfectly on this card. I cut out the background for each butterfly and the intricate top piece too. The background is glued completely down to the card base/embossing layer. Then the intricate part of the butterfly is attached using Journey Foam Squares. That way the intricate butterfly is raised up and I can slightly curled the wings to add dimension to the butterfly and card.
The intricate part of the butterflies were actually cut from the Nautical Adventure Prints in the Spring Into Summer Mini Catalog. Any card stock will work. Change the look of your butterfly by changing out the print or the solid color.
The Lavender Fusion backdrop piece was embossed with the J Blooms Embossing Folder, then lightly sponged with Lavender Fusion Ink Pad.
