Card Inspiration!

Have you ever been the recipient of a beautiful store-bought card and thought...hmmm, wonder if I could replicate this? That's exactly what I've done for you today with my card. This is a card Dave and I received from friends of ours:

And the card below is the card I made by using this sample. I of course fell in love with it because I love butterflies. Isn't this a beautiful card with nice vibrant colors?

I have both cards pictured below sitting side-by-side:

I  used three colors of cardstock and cut out butterflies using the Elegant Butterfly and Bitty Butterfly Punches. I also cut out butterflies using Whisper White Cardstock to serve as my stacking layer. I snipped the butterflies in half and glued the halves by alternating the colors to the white butterflies:

I then pressed each butterfly into my VersaMark Ink pad and sprinkled Heat & Stick Powder and melted with my Heat Tool. I quickly dipped each butterfly into Iridescent Ice Embossing powder and heat set a second time. The butterflies are totally gorgeous in person:
