Butterfly Spring Card by Melinda Beltran

Hello crafty friends! 
Melinda here with you today for my third Terrific TuesDIEs post!  Today’s project features the Exclusive Cheapo Dies Butterfly Die! Here’s a look at my card.

My card is a top folding A2 sized card. My card base is white cardstock. The patterned papers are from the Doodlebug Bunnyville Paper pad. 

The featured die is this pretty butterfly die that is a Cheapo Dies exclusive. I started by cutting out a few of them in plain white cardstock. I then used my Chameleon Colored pencils to color the top layer. Once I finished coloring it, I glued it to a piece of acetate.  This picture shows what it looked like at this point.

Once it was glued to the acetate, I cut it out. I then added some fine glitter to the top of the acetate. I love how it turned out semi translucent once the glue dried.

I then used four of the square cross stitched dies from the square  cross stitched die set. I cut out 4 corresponding mats from the patterned papers. I then simply staggered and layered the dies from largest to smallest and used some foam tape to give them some lift. Once they were stacked, I added the butterfly to the top.

I finished off the look of the card with some pretty ribbon, a bow and a nice sentiment. I cut the sentiment out with the smallest scallop stitched oval from the scallop stitched oval set.
