Thinking of You Butterflies - Memory Box

Good morning! I'm back today to share another card with some of the fun new dies and stamps from Memory Box that I received recently to play with - so many beautiful Valentine and love themed items! I've put several of the new dies to work on this card I'm sharing today - and I'm in love with all of them!

I started off by using the gorgeous Pinpoint Leaf Plate on a panel of white cardstock - love the subtle design this leaves behind! I then cut a window from that panel using one of the Double Stitch Loving Heart dies - do you see that pretty row of stitching it leaves around the window?

Next, I did some ink blending on a white cardbase using Dried Marigold and Abandoned Coral Distress Oxide inks, adding some splatters with Perfect Pearls for some texture and shine. I then adhered my front panel over that with foam adhesive.

Next, I die cut the butterflies! I used the Gloriosa Butterfly Duo Background to die cut the butterflies from vellum, and the Gloriosa Butterfly Duo Outlines to die cut the front layers. The main outline was done from gold glitter cardstock, then black for the body portion. I layered them together with tiny bits of liquid glue just in the centers - this leaves a bit of a loose feel to them as well!

I adhered those around the windows - again just with a bit of liquid glue in the centers of the butterflies. The sentiment is from Friendship Floral Heart stamp set, heat embossed on a thin strip of black cardstock, trimmed into a banner, and then mounted with foam adhesive. Finally, and few Pretty Pink Posh Gold Jewels finish this card off!
