Lovely You! by Shona

Hi there, designer Shona back to share another card with you using the Swallowtail Butterflies Set 856.

I had received this background die (Spellbinders Contemporary Diamonds) in a surprise package and was wondering what to do with it, so decided to use some of the Sparkle N Sprinkle Velvet Glitters along with the inlay technique.

I layered a piece of Super Adhesive Sheet on a piece of white cardstock. I then put the cutting edge of the die down on top of the SAS. This has the machine use the die to cut into the adhesive but not all the way through the cardstock underneath. I removed the outline of the pattern. The die was then run through again on top of a blue piece of cardstock. I removed the "blue area" of protective backing and placed the blue die cut piece in its place.

There was another smaller die to the set and I cut that out from the inside of the square.

I then removed the protective backing of a few pieces of the die and added Jasper Blue Velvet Glitter. Ballerina was then added to other areas.

 Dogwood and Hyacinth glitter were then added in the same manner.

 A piece of Embossable Acetate was added to the back of the card front where the little window is and then a little "well" was made using Mounting Tape. Royal Purple and Fucshia Crushed Glass were put into the well before being covered over with cardstock. 

The protective backing was removed from the top portion of the card front and a little of both of the Crushed Glasses were sprinkled on before Cloud Nine Velvet Glitter was added to the remaining sticky adhesive. Cloud Nine was also added to the base section of the card.

The sentiment was stamped in Memento Danube Blue directly on top of the Cloud Nine at the base of the card. The card front was then layered to a piece of blue card stock with mounting tape as the window was up from the base. This was then layered to a white card base.

The butterfly was a left over piece from my butterfly card earlier this month. It was stamped in Versamark on Embossable Acetate and heat embossed with Cerulean. After being fussy cut with the 5" Tonic Mini Scissors, it was attached to the front with mounting tape.
