Thinking of You Butterflies Tutorial

I was having such fun with the red, white, and blue theme that I created two new cards for today and tomorrow.   I'm also including tutorials so that you can create the cards too.    These two cards used the same basic elements but each has its own distinctive look.

On the card above look closely at the whisper white and the real red.   The texture was created with the same embossing folder.   On the whisper white the image is upraised.  On the real red, it is depressed into the card stock.   Flipping the card stock after going thru the Big Shot is what creates the different look.

1.       Fold and crease  Night of Navy Card Stock.
2.       Punch out the Modern Label Design from the Whisper White and the Real Red Card Stock pieces.
a.       Run both pieces thru the Big Shot using the Fancy Fan Embossing Folder.
b.      Attach to the card base.   (notice how the base color show thru giving the optical illusion that you have actually layered the modern label in the Night of Navy card stoc,.
3.       Stamp the sentiment and then punch out with Word Window Punch.  
a.       Attach to your card centering in the modern label punched out area on.
4.       For the other modern label area, use rhinestones, pearls, or small circles to accent it.
5.       Punch out three Elegant Butterflies.
a.       Attach Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back center of each one, then attach to card.  This will allow the wings to be up from the card base which will give the illusions of flight.
