Using the Beautiful Butterflies Die

The Beautiful Butterflies Bigz Die has four butterflies. Two show as full butterflies and the other two as half butterflies.

I cut a strip of Greenhouse Gala DSP and covered the full butterflies with that.

Then took another strip folded it in half placing the fold along the open side of the half butterflies and cut usually the Big Shot in the usual way.

This is how the butterflies look when popped out of the die.

This is how they look when the half butterflies are opened up.

I chose the two smallest butterflies and sponged the edges with baja breeze classic ink then covered the fold in the top one with basic pearl jewels and then did the same with the bottom one to match.

Here’s the finished card. I used the debossed side of whisper white cardstock embossed with the Manhattan Flower embossing then mounted on Not Quite Navy cardstock and a Baja Breeze Card base. The card was then finished off with a Thank you message from the ‘Because I Care’ Level One hostess set punched out with the Large Oval Die.
