Create a dimensional card with the new Picture Perfect Flower peeking through Butterfly Meadow grasses.  Brighten it with glittery butterflies, then add a thoughtful greeting.  Hi - happy weekend - Jean Okimoto here with another design featuring something "old" with something new.  The quick pace of the papercrafts industry makes it feel as though a product introduced a few months ago is already old - but it's perfect for the Garden Bouquet Collection.

Diecut a top-folded Limeade A-2 card with the 3" Circle Basics die.  Cut Picture Perfect Flower and Butterfly Meadow from green cardstock.  Save the Picture Perfect Flower offcut and tape it back into the delicate blossom outline.

Cut peach cardstock with the blossom portion and the extra blossom from the Picture Perfect Flower.  Layer them - slightly offset for dimension - over the green blossom and outline. 

Cut the flower center from black cardstock.

Attach Butterfly Meadow to the card front.  Align and attach Picture Perfect Flower inside the card.

Cut white glitter cardstock butterflies with the die included in the Butterfly Meadow set.  

Stamp the greeting - from the new Big and Little Words Clear Stamp Set - on the smooth side of limeade cardstock with Green Oasis VersaFine Clair.

Attach the butterflies.  "Sandwich" a few strands of the meadow grass between two butterflies to add dimension and cover the adhesive behind the butterfly.
