The silver under the butterfly wings is from a pre-pasted sheet which apparently was too thin to be separated after die cutting it. Here's a TIP on how to overcome that problem:
Cut a piece of the glitter paper, peel off the backing and apply it to a piece of scrap cardstock. Then run it through the Big Shot with the die, add the wings on top and attach to the card with a dimensional. Problem solved.
Another problem solved was how to use dryer sheets with the butterfly die so the little pieces would not have to be poked out. (Takes forever--ask me how I know!) Simply die cut as usual, but then run the die, with the pieces still in it, through the machine face down over 4-6 layers of dryer sheets. When you peel off the wings, the little pieces remain embedded in the dryer sheets. No more mess!
