Always My Friend - Butterfly Heart Card

Yogi here today using one of Suzanne's newest eCut files "Butterfly Heart Card". I did remove the square format and instead spliced a couple hearts together... The finished card measures 5"h x 7"w.

I eCut the filigree heart (5.5"w) from 110# white cardstock, then cut a blackout layer. Cut some aqua toned mulberry paper the approx size of the heart shape and glued to the inside front piece. Cut some blue satin ribbon and applied Sookwang tape, then adhered the two hearts together - the ribbon acting as the hinge.

eCut a 3" circle. Sponged Distress "Salty Ocean" around the edges. Stamped the quote ("Always Be My Friend" 3pce set) using Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed. Adhered circle to inside of heart front, making it level to the bottom edge of the card front to stabilize the card.

Stamped the flowers (Penny Black "Blooming Garden" set) using the black, clear embossed then painted using Winsor & Newton watercolor markers on a piece of plastic and picked up the color with a damp paint brush. When dry, fussy cut around it and adhered to front of card edge, again positioning it to stabilize the card.

The butterfly is part of the eCut file. Applied Versafine "Toffee" all over and embossed with "Rustique Tin Can" twice. Quilled a bunch of small coils from narrow 1/16"w quill strips and inserted them into the openings of the wing design, applying glue to the backside. Adhered to card front.On the inside: Stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment ("Happy Family Days" 5pce set) using the black and clear embossed.

Punched out a smaller 2" circle, sponged with the Salty Ocean and adhered to inside. I had also eCut a smaller butterfly, sponged with a dirty pink sponge, applied Quickie Glue and applied eCraft Designs "Warm Diamonds" micro fine glitter on the wings and Glitter Ritz "Java Bean" on the body. adhered to circle.

Stamped the other sentiment ("Twirl & Enjoy" 3pce set) using the black.
