LLC Retreat Fancy Butterflies Card

LLC Retreat, Project #22
This unique card was designed by Sue Kohler (her blog here). Stamped message used is from Kimono Marci with Tea found in the La-la Land Crafts on line store here. Dies used are: Fancy Butterflies, Filigree Crown, and Honeycomb.  Finished card size is 5-1/2" x 5-1/2. Card base is white color and the dies are cut using white card stock except the butterflies. More details below in the photos.
This technique may seem simple but it is a bit more labor intensive with beautiful results.  First, the Butterfly die is used on the popped up white card stock mat, then the color butterfly dies are made. You need as least two of them popped up with foam squares for each section to layer on to the spot where the die cut was made on the white card base.  Then put the "puzzle" back together to achieve this unique look.  Adding adhesive flat back bling is the final embellishment.

See the layers of the butterflies when the wings are propped up?
Thank you for stopping by today to visit..........stay tuned for more projects from the La-la Land Retreat.
