Butterfly Brilliance Pop Up!

Good morning!  I'm playing along with Global Design Project's Theme challenge of "beautiful bugs"!   (and it's not last minute for a change! haha!)

May club 2

For this card, I embossed a single butterfly from the Butterfly Brilliance Background Stamp (I actually bought two of this stamp, and cut one into single butterflies!).  I stamped with Versamark Ink on Cardstock Vellum, then embossed in white.

I cut the same butterfly out of the Flowering Fields Designer paper — just love the bright, happy colors in this collection!!   The So Saffron layer was run through the Stampin' Cut & Emboss machine with the Stitched Greenery Die–love the "paper piercing" from this die!   Adhere that to your Basic White Thick cardstock card base.  Glue the DSP butterfly to your card base.  Then add two small strips cut from a window sheet and folded in two–I tried to get a picture, but it was hard:

The vellum butterfly is adhered to the bottom butterfly using one piece of Tear-n-tape right in the middle of the butterfly.  The strips of window sheet are only adhered to the DSP butterfly, NOT the vellum butterfly.   This card will lay flat to fit into an envelope, but when the receipient pulls it out, the butterfly wings pop up!  It's so pretty IRL!!

This idea came from Jennifer MacGuire — you can see her video HERE.

Here are all the supplies used on this fun card!
