Pretty Peacock Butterflies

Here is a great layout to use up a few of those odd size left-over designer series paper scraps. They make excellent backgrounds, but the focus is still on the sentiment. Thoughts? 

   Thoughtful Expressions

   Calypso Coral A-2
   Delightful Floral DSP 2-1/4 x 3-5/8, 1-3/4 x 3-5/8
   Berry Burst 2-1/4 x 1-1/2, 1-3/4 x 1-1/2
   Pretty Peacock 3" Sq.
   Basic White 2-1/2" Sq., 5-1/4 x 4 (Inside)

   Pretty Peacock

   Dry Embossing
   Die Cutting

   Thoughtful Expressions Dies
   Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder
   Butterfly Gems
   Polished Dots

First, I stamped and die cut the sentiment and its matte, using the square pieces of cardstock, Pretty Peacock ink, and the Thoughtful Expressions Dies. 

I then adhered the Basic White sentiment onto the Pretty Peacock matte and set it aside.

Next, I placed the Berry Burst pieces and the DSP pieces on the Calypso Coral card front to make sure I was matching them up correctly. Note that each piece allows a little of the Calypso Coral card front to show around it.

I then adhered the two DSP strips onto the card front.

Next, I dry embossed the two Berry Burst pieces, using the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder. You may want to make sure the script is flowing in the correct direction.

I then adhered these onto the card front.

I added the sentiment, using adhesive, but you can easily raise it a bit with dimensionals if you wish.

Lastly, I added a couple of butterflies and adhered a Basic White panel to the inside of the card.
