Here we are at the last day of Sneak Peaks already. And you guessed it another card from me to show you. I cannot take credit for this idea though. I saw Jennifer McGuire do this with dies from Simon Says Stamp, and when I got the release from Emma, I knew right off I was going to try this. And I LOVE how it turned out! I hope you will like it too. And give it a try yourself.
 

First off....I love these bright papers! So summery! First off, cut and fold for an A2 sized card. Make a very faint pencil line in the center of the card front, from top to bottom. Line up the center of your butterfly dies on that pencil line, going vertical as well. Line up that pencil line with the bottom edge of your cutting plate so that part that hangs off won't cut. Here is a link to Jennifer's video to show you how.
Once you have run it through your die cutting machine you can score on that line then erase any of it that might show.

Once you have scored and folded it back on itself, you can cut your butterflies out of patterned paper and adhere. I added some tiny pearls to the bodies. I cut some very thin strips of the same papers and glued along the bottom edges.
I thought this sentiment just said all and nothing else was needed! This is a very simple card but one that will wow the recipient. I love how it came out and you could do this same thing with lots of dies.


I thought that writing on the front would really mess this up if someone wanted to leave it sit out. I created a panel for the back of the card that you could write your message on. Plenty of space and won't yuk up the front. 

So, there you have it...a simple, but very pretty card. Here's what you need to recreate it for yourself.

Pretty Butterflies & Dragonfly Dies ~ New Release
Speech Bubble Sentiments ~ New Release

Hope to see you for the blog hop tomorrow! Happy Crafting!
