Butterfly Basics Birthday Card

I have been working on some birthday cards and I knew when I saw this card on Pinterest that I wanted to make it for my daughter's birthday which is coming up.  What I didn't realize is all the fussy cutting I would have to do!! LOL!  I used Whisper White for my base card and on the left side I stamped the diagonal background image in basic black.  On the left side I stamped the honeycomb background image in Pool Party.

For my layer, I used Shimmery White CS and sponged it with Pool Party and adhered it to the base card with some dimensionals.  I stamped the honeycomb image again in Pool Party on Whisper White and then stamped the butterfly image in Melon Mambo over the top and then again on its own.  I then cut them out with the dies.  The fern image was stamped in Lemon Lime Twist on Shimmery White CS and I cut it out - that was fun!!  I then stamped the floral image in Basic Black on Shimmery White CS and used my aqua painter to color it with Lemon Lime Twist and Melon Mambo and then fussy cut that out as well.  Then I just adhered my images down with some dimensionals adding some gold thread behind them.  I placed my butterflies on the page making sure I left room for the sentiment, which I stamped in Basic Black as well on Shimmery White CS, cut it out and adhered it with tiny dimensionals.  I actually had some matching Melon Mambo sequins which I scattered around.

For my inside sentiment, I used SU's Whimsical Words and stamped some tiny butterflies with Melon Mambo.  Yes, it was a lot of cutting, but I was really pleased how it turned out.  The fern was the worst but the rest wasn't too bad!  Hope everyone has a great weekend.

This is one of my favourite sets and you've made a real beauty with it. The vibrant pinks just glow against the green and the Pool Party. Lots of fussy cutting but so worth it. Thank you for joining in the celebrations for The Paper Players' 400th challenge.

Beautiful card, and you did a fabulous job with the fussy cutting. I have always loved how you finish the inside of your cards off. You have inspired me to do the same.
