Black & White Beautiful Wings Card

Lattice Die

I made this card last night while the ladies were putting together their Punch Pals books.  Whew, were those ladies ever working hard!  I didn’t realize I was giving them so much work to do!  In the end I think they were pleased with their books and all the fun little creatures they were able to make!

Beautiful Wings Embosslit Die

To make this card I used the Stampin’ Up! exclusive Lattice Die and Beautiful Wings Embosslit Die.  It’s hard to see the detail of the ribbon but there are three folds in it on the top right corner just below the pearls.

There are a bunch of layers to this card in Whisper White, Basic Black and Basic Gray.  On most of the layers I used the Ticket Corner Punch, I haven’t used that for a while it’s kind of struck my fancy again.  Funny how I sometimes I use tools in spurts and then let them rest before picking them up again.  Surely I’m not the only one like that, am I?

Here’s a close up of the beautifully winged butterfly!  I cut two of the butterflies with the Big Shot.  The bottom butterfly is cut from Basic Gray, the top butterfly is cut from Paper Vellum.  After cutting/dry embossing the butterfly I embossed it with Iridescent Ice embossing powder to give it some special sparkle.  You may not be able to see it in the picture but the Lattice Die is also embossed with the Iridescent Ice.

The beads on the butterfly are from the Pretties Kit.  I strung them on some sewing thread and then wrapped it around the middle of the butterfly and knotted it at the back.  The rhinestone adhesives in the Eggcelent Eggs Kit would also look lovely on the butterfly, however, I didn’t have any to use so I improvised.

Thank you for stopping by!  I hope this card has been an inspiration for you!
