Memory Box Butterfly Swell

This card was challenging to create, but it is so beautiful.  I can't wait to send it.

I cut the Butterfly Swell die, new from Memory Box (#9971) three times, once in white glitter paper (top butterfly fussy cut), once through a mat which was a very pale blue paper,  "smooshed" with  SU sky blue ink and dried.  I cut the butterfly swell again through the front of Pacific Point cardstock and then lined up the pale blue layer with the cutout and adhered it. (Ranger multi-media). And the "there's a bit of magic in everything"quotation is stamped in Pacific Point ink. 

Then I adhered the back of the "front" of the card to clear acrylic coverstock  for stability..  I inked  "fairy dust" from Su's A little bit of Magic stampset on the inside of the card through the center window and lined up dark blue/green glimmering holographic butterflies to match the front of the card on the inside.  

I will probably use a vertical sentiment inside the card and emboss it in white--from one of the Lawn Fawn script sentiments sets (when I know the occasion that this greeting will be for.)

The backside of the card is Impression Obsession Happiness Butterfly (D14201) stamped in Pacific Point ink.


This card uses the Daningt Fairy (by Poppy Stamps) diecut with the Butterfly Swell on lavender with lavender ink "smooshed,"  Accents are with glimmer paper and Wink of  Stella and glitter inside the wing of the butterflies..
