With Love Wedding Card

I know I said I wasn't going to post again today but I saw the 'Less is More Challenge' which is white on white and you could use Metallic for accents, a card jumped into my head and I just to do it. Now that I have finished, I have to decide ,this one or the card with the tag that I posted the other day, for tomorrows wedding, decisions decisions.

Every step just came together perfectly (nah I got glue all over when the sentiment stuck to my finger when I lifted it away from the card, but it cleaned off okay :)

Okay white card base with piece of dotted acetate attached over the top. I always cut it a bit longer than the card front, add a fold with my bone folder so it folds over the top and can be attached at the back with some double sided tape and nothing shows at the front.

Then I die cut the butterfly from Memory Box, the top layer out of white glitter paper and the bottom layer out of vellum and the body from the glitter paper. Attached them all together and put a bit of dimensional tape under the wings for a bit of lift.

I then used the die cut at the bottom of the card which is a circle with lines coming off it. In this glitter paper it was too flimsy without the negative pieces so I kept them. I ended up putting a piece of double sided tape direct onto the acetate and laid the pieces over the top to attach them. This worked well. These are NBUS and come in circle, square and heart so I need to get them out more along with the other 10,000 items I need to use more.

Finished this card off with a die cut sentiment 'With love' - getting plenty of use out of this one. This time I cut it from gold mirror cardstock. All finished. Doesn't that butterfly sparkle, if I knew how, I would add some sparkle bursts to the photo in photoshop just to make you realise how pretty it is IRL.

Thanks for your patience on this third post today, which had to be done now or I would have missed it..
Would like to post this to:

A new challenge for me

Love is the flower you've got to let grow.
Inspiration is 'Love' word and where flowers grow, butterflies go.

Im hoping I have interpreted this properly, if not then please remove my link. Thank you.

Aileen this is quite simply lush, classy and elegant the gold sets it off perfectly. Aileen the Julie Nutting Stamps are quite big at about 7" but they also do stamp sets with smaller doll stamps and accessories, I have some of both.
