Butterfly Swell
by Penny Ward

New-Day-butterflies1

Hello, hello Memory Box friends. So excited to be bringing you a bit of Spring today. I gotta tell you, I am loving this Butterfly Swell die from the new collection. Cuts like butter and leaves the tiny embossed area around the outer wings...so cool!!!

Let's do this:

 

Start by die cutting the Butterfly Swell from White cardstock. Trim your panel to 4.25 x 5.50 inches. Squish Peacock Feathers Distress ink onto craft sheet, pick up color with wet paint brush and flick across card front.

Now for the fun part.... take a piece of computer paper and cover it with adhesive. Cut 1/4 inch strips of colored papers (I used 4 different colors of Teal). Adhere strips to computer paper on the diagonal. Trim and adhere to back of Butterfly panel with foam adhesive.

Make a base card from Blue card stock by trimming to 4.25 x 11 inches and folded in half. Adhere your card front to base card.

Stamp and heat emboss Possibilities onto Vellum. Trim, notch end and adhere to card front as shown.

Add Caribbean Ocean Crystal Drops as desired.

 

I love using up small scraps of paper for this technique. 

 

Happy Crafting,
