Pick out the large, open, interconnected butterflies die from the Brilliant Wings Dies. Place the die on top of the stamped and sponged white rectangle on a platform on your Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine so it is centered over all the butterflies. Run through the machine.
Note: You are using the medium butterfly cut out from the left center of the die on this project. Keep all the other butterfly cut outs and the white rectangle with the butterflies cut out of it to use on other projects.
Lightly bend up the wings on the butterfly cut out.
Use Mini Stampin' Dimensionals down the center of the back of the butterfly cut out to adhere it at a slight angle to the center of the designer paper square on the card front.
Cut a 16" piece of the Blushing Bride Twine from the Snail Mail Twine Combo Pack.
Fold the twine in half. Tie a small bow in the center. Trim the ends.
Use a Mini Glue Dot to adhere the twine bow to the front of the card at the bottom left corner of the designer paper square.
Use the mini spatula on the Take Your Pick to carefully peel up 1 large Calypso Coral sequin from a sheet of Artistry Blooms Sequins making sure that you get the adhesive backing as well. Adhere it to the center of the butterfly cut out.
