Extraordinary Bedazzled Butterflies

Playing with a few other challenges this afternoon.

Sketch: Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge (#434), Theme: CAS on Friday Challenges (#212) and Tools: Happy Little Stamper Challenges for August.

Here is the result:



  • I die-cut two Butterflies from the free Sale-a-bration Be Dazzling Specialty Designer Series Paper with one of the Butterfly dies from the Brilliant Wings Dies set.
  • As the Be Dazzling Specialty Designer Series Paper incorporates a little of all the metallics, I chose the Brushed Metallic (Copper) cardstock for the rectangle panel (1½” x 2⅜”).
  • For the two cross strips, I chose Gold Foil cardstock and die-cut the strips (3¼” x ⅜”) with the lacy die from the Nature’s Thoughts Dies set.
  • I added an additional Very Vanilla background panel (3¾ x 5”).  The sentiment, You make the ordinary extraordinary, from the Simply Succulents stamp set was stamped with Versamark ink and heat-set with Silver Embossing Powder towards the bottom of the panel.
  • All of the elements were arranged and adhered in place on the panel.  I added three Rhinestone Jewels to the center of the Copper panel between the two Butterflies.  One mid-sized Champagne straddled by two small Basic Silver-toned jewels.
  • I selected a Very Vanilla card base because I wanted the card to have a clean esthetic.  The panel was popped up with Dimensionals for interest.

Using all of the metallic elements together gives this card a nice sparkly impression that is extraordinary, don’t you think?
