Butterfly circle - Mosaic Card

click on card for larger view
Yogi here with you today. I recently made a card using Spellbinders Lattice die and loved all the little squares that were popping out of the die BIG GRIN. So I had to use them...

I side folded my white cardstock (5.5"w x 4.25"h). Applied Sookwang tape, keeping a 1/8" border all around. Started adhering my drop out squares (light mint Bazzill monochromatic cardstock) and leaving a space between them. I also added a piece of green Ruche paper (I ran out of little squares sigh...). When done, sprinkled with Glitter Ritz micro fine glitter "Bronze", burnished well.

Stamped the butterfly circle on white cardstock with Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed. Die cut with Spellbinders Classic Scalloped circle large set. Used tracing paper to make a stencil/mask of the inner portion of the circle so I could stamp the flower sprig (Flourishes "Magnolias") also with the black. Colored with Prisma colored pencils.

Stamped a portion of the Garden Delights stamp and hand cut with a wavy contour. Sponged a bit of brown on the edges and adhered to card. Adhered the circle.

Die cut the butterfly (E Craft Designs "Small Butterfly") from white cardstock. Sponged distress Worn Lipstick, then applied Perfect medium and embossed with Stampendous Stamp 'n Bond embossing powder. Sprinkled Ranger's Stickles Fine Glitter "Stardust" and reheated to set. Adhered to card with a foam square.

Hope you give a try to using your drop out pieces. There are some interesting things you can do with them.
Have a great day
