Butterfly Sparkle

Hello, fellow crafters! Here's a CAS card I made just for the fun of it. It has only one stamped image and the rest are die cuts.

I began with a base in pink card stock. I cut a layer slightly smaller than my base in white card stock and stamped my image (HFC Petite Floral Swirls) in black ink and then colored it with Copics.

In my next step, I used a Memory Box Floral Delights die to cut tiny flowers in pink card stock. I adhered these flowers, several different shapes,  randomly over my image. I added a touch of adhesive to each flower and sprinkled it with glitter.

The butterfly is a die cut from Spellbinders Les Papillion Two. It was cut in white card stock which was matted with double sided adhesive. After removing it from the die and removing the protective layer of the adhesive it was sprinkled with various colors of glitter and adhered to my card with dimensionals.

For the sentiment, I composed it on my computer and printed it out on white card stock. It was then cut with a die from Sue Wilson's Spanish Collection Cordoba. Using the same die, I cut the same oval shape in pink card stock and adhered it behind my sentiment panel, offsetting it to the left. This was then popped onto my card with dimensionals.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you have a wonderful weekend with crafting on your mind.
