Butterfly Card

Created this Butterfly Card using Hero Arts Sizzix stamp & die cut set Flowers & Butterflies. I did not use the stamp part of the set. Instead I used some Butterfly scrapbook paper & for die cutting the Butterflies & cut outs on cardstock layer of the card. Attached the scrapbook paper Butterflies to the cut out cardstock Butterfly for more sturdiness. Used Martha Stewart scoring board to score the Butterflies so they would be 3D pop up Butterflies.
