Something Old, Something New
Looking through my Cuttlebug drawer of dies and embossing folders, I came across this 2-piece set of butterfly dies that I'd forgotten about. I thought it would look good against this white on white cs from a pad I bought at Hobby Lobby last week (at 50% off!)
The papers in this pad are all pearlized, and I chose this pattern for the movement it suggests.
The card base is a deep burgundy color which goes well with the dsp underneath the butterfly wings. To curve the wings a little, I curled them around my finger after attaching them to the dsp beneath with a narrow strip of foam tape.
The finishing touches include off-white pearls for the body and head, tiny black gems for the "trail" and a rounded corner on the lower right.
