Flutterby Butterflies

          I know this style card has been done by many different people in a variety of colors, patterns, and art forms, but I have always liked it and wanted to try it for myself.

      The white on white background really makes the butterflies pop.  The bodies are done in Silver Stickles and the wings are covered in Ice Stickles, which take on the color of the underlying paper.    The butterflies were all adhered with sticky dots and their wings bent to give them a three dimensional look.  I liked the look of the Plum Blossom Cuttlebug embossing folder with the butterflies.  The whole butterfly - flowers thing.

     The same butterflies were used on the inside minus the Ice Stickles.   Spring backs were added to several of the large butterflies to make them flutter and move when the card was opened. The sentiment was stamped in Rose Distress Ink then I went over it with a glue pen and added Chantilly pink glitter.  As you can tell from the sentiment, this card was made for Mother's Day.  This was for my mother-in-law, who is an absolute angel on earth.
