The multi-tasking Big Butterfly Wing makes it unbelievably easy to create a quick card!  Here it is, on my May Challenge inspiration card, framing a beautiful print available from Birch Press Design.  Hi everyone, Jean Okimoto here with a super-simple design for you.

Cut bright white cardstock with the  3-¾" x 5" Rectangle Basics die.  Cut it with the Big Butterfly Wing.  Save the detailed butterfly diecut for another project.  We're recycling and using the "offcut" here.  That's what I call it  - I think "negative" sounds so gloomy, especially for such a pretty butterfly.

Find the perfect bright and flowery section of the screenprinted paper.  Cut it with the 3-½" x 4-¾" Rectangle Basics die.  Using the slightly smaller die eliminates measuring, guessing and wasting that beautiful paper!

Cut the center/antennae section from gold glitter paper.  I love the new 21-1/2"x 30" gold glitter paper from Impress!  It's easy to diecut - with very little "flaking" and works perfectly with both detailed and solid dies.  

Attach the diecuts to an A-2 card of bright white cardstock.  Add turquoise gem stickers - or clear gem stickers colored with a marker.

Have a stash of pretty artpapers?  The Big Butterfly Wing will help you use them!  Make a set of cards for special teachers or carpool moms - or for someone who's always scrambling to find a card at the last minute.  

Thanks for visiting...have a great, sunny day!
