I have been waiting for these dies to arrive so I could play with them and I'm so happy that they worked just the way I envisioned! I made this pretty card in less than 30 minutes and it came out just the way I wanted.
I cut out the heart shape out of white shining paper. Then, I placed it over the pink background mat and traced it around the heart shape. Next, I lined up the pink paper with the butterfly die and ran it through my cuttlebug. This is the effect you get when you put them together. I also "fluffed" up the wings of each butterfly and added a few pearls for their bodies. I stamped the greeting with Memento Rose Bud ink, sprinkled it with transparent Stampendous embossing powder and heat embossed it.
Here is a pic that better shows you the shining paper and the embossed greeting.
For the inside, I used the same pink cardstock, but plain white cardstock for the sentiment, which was computer generated. I punched out a few butterflies with a MS punch and added some faux pearls with a Viva Décor Pearl Pen.
