Butterfly Trio

Happy Friday!  Kathy here with my Butterfly Trio Card using CottageCutz's Butterfly Mini and Garden Bird Branch Dies

I originally planned to post another project, but it's taking a little longer than I thought lol! While I was working on it, I thought of this idea with the butterflies and quickly put this card together!

I love this Butterfly Mini! The last time I used it I colored the pieces with chalk inks. This time I used double-sided designer papers (Secret Garden) and slightly inked the edges. I used the patterned side for the wings, and flipped the piece over to the solid side for the body. I cut the Garden Bird Branch in Certainly Celery Cardstock and trimmed a little of the bottom off to fit on the card.

For the white base, I embossed a small portion of the bottom and stamped the sentiment on the top. Then I just added some ribbons, lace, pearls, liquid pearls, and a button with a floss bow using two colors together. I added a lavender mat (Secret Garden) and white to a So Saffron card base. The finished card measures 4 1/2" x 4 1/2".

Here are the dies I used:
