Butterfly Layering dies
There are two gorgeous Butterfly layering dies at Crafty Meraki - Luna Meraki and Emperor Wings and for my card today I am using the latter layering dies.
Products used (Linked below):
First I created a my lovely layered butterfly. I cut the four layers of the butterfly with light blue and white for the bottom most layer, so it is sturdy when we add the upper layers. The second layer is a teal cardstock and the upper most layer was cut with a shimmery black cardstock.
I adhered the first two layers with glue and on the top most black layer I added glue only in the middle of the body so, the wings are popped up.
I wanted to create a background for the card and thought of the beautiful stamp set - Special delivery. But I didn't want to color the flower as I wanted my butterfly to be the star of my card.
I smooshed some distress inks - Ever green bough, Wilted Violet and Faded jeans - added spritz of water and let a watercolor paper soak them to give an organic look. Then I stamped the stunning floral stamp and added clear embossing powder and heat embossed it.
I trimmed the water color panel, added it on an A2 black card base and adhered my butterfly on the right bottom.
To add interest, I added the beautiful sparkly Midnight illusion sparkles.
I hope you like this quick and easy way to add interest to your cards. Thinking of you is a card I love to keep in my stash as it covers a lot of reasons I might need a card. I hope you will give this technique a try and make some quick cards with the layering dies. With some happy colors - it will make a prefect Birthday card too.
