Cottage Cutz Fancy Bella Butterfly

 Greetings Friends and Bloggers.  Welcome to my CottageCutz Fancy Bella Butterfly project.  Isn't this color awesome.  It is the special edition Tim Holts Peacock Feathers distress ink.  It's so pretty-I just love it.   What I have for you today is called a tent topper card.
 To create this gorgeous butterfly die cut two of the Fancy Bella Butterfly.  Distress ink with the Peacock Feathers distress ink making sure to ink the edges darker on the outer edges of the die and pull the color towards the center so it is lighter.  Paint both butterfly pieces with glitter glue and sprinkle Martha Stewart plain white glitter over the top and let it dry.  Once it has dried, use pop dots to attach the two butterfly pieces together and shape the wings.  The glittered pieces help the wings to hold their shape.  Glue some tiny prima roses down the middle for accent.
 For the focal point, attach your butterfly to a Spellbinders Nested Circle on top of the Spellbinders Nested Butterfly Circle, then two more layers of scalloped circles.  The largest nested circle is from the Spellbinders Grand Scalloped Circle die. 
The bottom was punched with Martha Stewart Deep Double Edge Punch - Embroidery.  Cut one Bella Spring Wreath out of white cardstock, then cut it in half.  Attach these two pieces on the bottom of card to frame the focal point.  Add a few rhinestones and your done.  Thank you so much for stopping by today to view my project.  I really appreciate it.  Have a wonderful day!  These are the dies I used from CottageCutz:

Hi, Carol! I was so happy to see your blog pop up in my Reader today. I have missed you. What a delightful card - I see what you mean about using the peacock colors (per your last email to me). Looks amazing! I am also working with some of those peacocky colors on my current project, so we must be on the same wave length. While there are no magical butterflies on my project, it is "winged" in theme. :-) The new Fancy Bella butterfly looks beautiful done in this manner. At first, it looked as if there were 3 or 4 layers because of the nature of the die, but it is the clever manner in which you have folded it! What I am really in love with is the Bella Spring Wreath! Wow! How gorgeous! What a delicate, feminine, pretty card with your trademark details evident everywhere. hugs, de

Carol - it would be harder to make a card any prettier than this (actually you could but the rest of us would struggle). I love this multi-layered, sparkly, and very beautiful card. Lovely work! Hugz!!!!
