Butterfly Sympathies

Happy New Year everyone!
Shona here to share a sympathy card, highlighting the Memory Box Butterfly Swell die.

The two dies that I used today were:

and the Memory Box Butterfly Swell (which I see is no longer in stock). However, there are others in the store that would give you the same effect, like the Nellie's Choice Floral & Butterflies

Nellie's Choice - Hobby Solutions Die Cut "Floral & Butterflies"  (Ships January 6)

I began with running the Darice Butterflies embossing folder through my embossing machine. 

The Memory Box Butterfly Swell was then die cut from the embossed piece. 

I looked through my home-made backings and found this piece that I wanted to use. I used to write on the back, how they were made! New Year resolution - get back to that habit!!

I then attached the background behind the die cut piece and cut off the excess.

The sentiment was stamped with Versafine Clair Morning Mist. While it was still wet I added some Sparkle Embossing Powder and this was then die cut with one of the Lawn Fawn Just For You Labels

I cut out the Butterfly Swell from vellum also and then fussy cut the three butterflies. They were then inked with Versamark and then sprinkled with Sparkle embossing powder.

A little dab of Scraperfect Best Glue Ever was added to the middle of each of the butterflies and the curled vellum butterflies were attached on top of the glue.

The sentiment was attached with foam tape and the other little butterfly was cut from the same orange cardstock as the layer on top of the card base (also inked up with Versamark and sprinkled with Sparkle embossing powder). This was all layered on to the white card base.

Here is a close up of the front of the card.
