Butterflies (Eureka)

Copic markers were used to color the image panel.

To emboss the image panel which will show up best in the close up photo, I placed the cardstock panel on the embossing folder and used a metal ball stylus to rub all the open areas between the butterflies.  I secured the panel to the folder with repositional tape to avoid movement. 
The Cuttlebug Vintage set was used to create the corner features by cutting both colors and interchanging the pieces. Tape was applied to the back so the pieces would stick when inserted and that also aided with attaching it to the card, some dots of Aleene’s tacky glue was also used.
Panel used was Tim Holtz – Gridlock.

QuicKutz die and Nestabilities were used for the sentiment panel and I also made use of the tiny circles from the corner die, these were attached easily with a long stick pin touched in glue then to the back of the circle which picks it up, place on the card, press down with the finger and pull away, slide into place if needed. Aleene’s Paper Glaze was applied to create a shiny finish. 

I stamped an extra bottom right butterfly and embossed it by debossing the outline on the front, flip it over and emboss between the debossed lines while it lies on folded paper towel for cushion.

Paper: Bazzill - rust, light brown, The Paper Company – beige, Beckett Expressions – white Iceburg

Ink: Memento – Tuxedo Black
