Well, almost exactly. I used a different sentiment but otherwise it's the same. It's a big card, 6x6. It starts out with a Whisper White card base. A panel of Watermelon Wonder card stock is cut 5 3/4 x 5 3/4. I embossed the panel with a new folder from SU called Fluttering.
You can see in this close up how pretty but subtle the raised butterflies are. I cut a circle from Early Espresso and another smaller circle from from pattern paper. Now the real star of this card is the butterfly.
There are two layers, the bottom one is a solid die that is stamped using Watercolor Wings. There are actually 3 stamps that create the look and depth of a real butterfly, even though I took creative license with the colors. The top butterfly is cut with an intricate die that complements the solid layer.
After stamping the body in espresso ink, I covered it with Glossy Accents which made it raised when it dried. I then used a Wink of Stella pen to add shine. It was a time consuming card to make but so very elegant. I have a special person that I'm giving it to.
Susie and Allison, thinking of you!
