Two Butterfly cards using Blendabilities background

These two cards will be made in the next class (Feb. 25).  They are created from a background I made yesterday using some colours of blendabilities and rubbing alcohol on glossy cardstock.

The colours used for this background :  Cherry Cobbler, Coastal Cabana, Pumpkin Pie and Crumb Cake.  Again, I used the darkest shade of the colours with the exception of Crumb Cake.

Card One:

 I know you can't see the background colours very well in the butterflies, but wait for the next card.

Using the medium sized Butterfly framelit two butterflies were die cut from the background and attached to a whisper White background which had been embossed with the Filigree embossing folder.  This was matted with Melon Mambo cardstock, and attached to a Whisper White card base.

There is no sentiment for this card, and that was done on purpose.

Card Two:

After I die cut the butterflies, I was left with a butterfly stencil - which I decided to make into a new card.

You can see the background much better here.

The butterfly stencil was trimmed, and matted with Whisper White cardstock and then with Melon Mambo cardstock.  At the top and bottom end I attached a piece of Melon Mambo cardstock which had been die cut using the Finishing Touches framelit die.  This whole unit was attached to a Whisper White base.

In the middle of each butterfly stencil, are two butterflies that were die cut using the smallest of the butterflies in the Butterfly framelit die collection.  Before attaching them they were embossed with the Decorative dots folder.  Of course a card has to have bling, so a row of rhinestones was added to the center of each of these butterflies.

These cards could be birthday cards, anniversary cards, thinking of you, Just because, etc.

Here's the supplies I used;
