Butterflies

Good Monday Morning! 
 
Donna Phelan back again, to show you a quick and easy card using only ONE die set. 
When buying dies I always look for the biggest bang for my buck!  And this fantastic set from our very own product line, Dies R Us Dies, fits the bill! 
 
Only using the Butterfly Set #2  I was able to create this pretty little card!
 
 
The set contains 5 different butterfly dies.....FIVE!!!  Now that's A LOT of bang for my buck!  I die cut 4 of the different butterflies in 4 different black and white Designer Papers.  In white card stock, the base panel, I cut the same butterfly dies (saving for a future project).  I layered the white over a pretty pink card stock, which I sent through a Swiss Dots Embossing Folder.  This just adds a bit more interest and texture.  Then I lined up my pretty Designer Paper butterflies accordingly, to match up to the pink silhouettes.

 
My sentiment was stamped in Black Licorice Hybrid ink on to a Vellum strip, which has been layered twice, so you can actually read it, but allows you to still see the pretty butterflies beneath.  The inside bottom left corner is an inlaid pink butterfly die cut.  This just finishes off the card nicely while still leaving plenty of room for a handwritten note.  4 pink Sequins as accents.
 
Cute.
 
Simple.
 
Easy.
 
Here's the one and only die set I used!
