Crystal Effects - Butterfly Die

Here is another Crystal Effects and Re-Inker card I made using the same technique as this Just Believe card from last week. I used the decorated Window Sheets, after they had dried over night, with the Beautiful Butterfly Bigz Die for the Big Shot and created these two gorgeous butterflies. This is a pretty simple card, mostly because I wanted the focus on the butterfly elements and so that the card wouldn't get too 'busy.'

I also trimmed the front of the card base and added the Rich Razzleberry Scallop Border, so that inside of the card is visible from the front. A bow with White Taffeta Ribbon finished it off for me. This 'cherish' sentiment is from my well loved Baroque Motifs stamp set. If I make another of these cards, the only thing I would add is a light dusting of Dazzling Diamonds glitter to the wet Crystal Effects.

Here's a closer look at one of the butterflies. I pushed Crystal Effects and a few drops of Re-Inker (Wild Wasabi and Rich Razzleberry) around on the Window Sheet. I put another Window Sheet over these and pressed them together lightly to spread the mixture to both sheets. Then I pulled them apart and set them aside to dry. When they were nearly dry, but still a little tacky I laid them each onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock and then put this through the Big Shot with the Beautiful Butterfly Bigz Die. I adhered two of the butterflies to my card with glue dots in the middle only, so that they float a tiny bit. The bodies are a few of the Basic Jewel Pearls adhered down the middle.
