Butterfly Easel Card

Hello and welcome here! Today I have a Butterfly Easel Card to share with you. I found the idea over on Keenan Creations. I just purchased Wonderful Wings from Spellbinders and wanted to give it a try with my new butterflies.

Card Size: 4" Circle

I used Glitter Ritz Cool Highlight on Outdoor Denim CS for the base of the butterfly, it really gives it a sparkle. Unfortunately the camera doesn't do it justice.

TIP: My friend found this tip online and told me about it, and now I want to share it with you:) Before cutting out the detailed butterfly, give the die a good wipe with a dryer sheet, the butterfly comes out really easy then. With all those little pieces the paper likes to stay stuck in the die and quite often you end up ripping it as you take it out.

Recipe: Patterned Paper-My Mind's Eye Vanity Fair Collection 6x6 & Crate Paper Random Collection Curtains, CTMH CS-Outdoor Denim, Juniper & White Daisy, CTMH Ink-Creme Brulee, Juniper & Black, Flourishes Stamps-Taglines, Glitter Ritz-Cool Highlight, Marianne Designs-Doily LR0152 & Flourish LR0116, Nestabilities-Wonderful Wings & Ovals Large, Recollections-Floral Embellishments & Rose, Pearls, Rhinestones, Satin Edge Organdy Ribbon, Foam Squares.
