Butterfly Heart

I purchased a new die(for me) from Memory Box and got it in the mail yesterday.  It's Butterfly Heart...aptly named as it is a heart made of butterflies:)!!...
I used three different colors of pink paper .  BUT...there was something about this die that I didn't know when I purchased it.  The butterflies were designed to be cut only part way through the paper...so they fly!  Here's what I mean...
The only problem is...unless you want the die cut to be all one color, you have to adhere colored butterflies to..say... a white base...as I did!  I die cut in the three colors and cut out some from each color.  I randomly placed them on the die cut panel to make sure I liked where all the different pinks were placed, them adhered them with glossy accents.  THEN I bent all the wings...and the flying began!!!

I found a sentiment from My Favorite Things that I thought went perfectly with my Butterfly Heart and then popped up on white card.  FUN!!  Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa

  3. I just saw someone else use this die the other day - all in one color of course. I love that you changed colors, and the sentiment couldn't be more perfect.

  14. What a beautiful Valentine! I love butterflies anyway and this is such a fun way to use them. I hadn't ever seen that die.

  15. Wow-that sure makes a striking card. It sounds a bit fiddly with the adhering colored butterflies on top of the white, but that's what made this card. Very, very nice!

  20. Although this is a old post. I hope you still get our comments. ��. The large die you used on the white card stock only cut out like an outline. Then you put coloured ones on top. Did you have the dies then already to cut out the coloured butterflies?
    Or is the large buterfly able to cut out singular butterflies? Hope I make sense lol. Anyhow. This is absolutely gorgeous. Thankyou for taking the time to share all your cards with us. X
