Love Struck Butterfly Heart


I love the intricate images on the new Love Struck cart and decided to play a bit. It is fairly frustrating that there not really shadows though, just sort of a blackout for the cuts, but I was not to be deterred. I cut the butterfly heart and instead of the blackout, I used one of the other hearts to make a shaped card and tweaked it again to make a shadow. Then, to add dimension, I punched butterflies using 3 of my MS punches. Although they aren't an exact fit, I still think it looks pretty. I traced around as much of the small bottom heart that I could and cut it out and embossed it with a tiny rose limited edition Cuttlebug folder that I got at Custom Crops.
Here's the dimension shot. The light blue dotted paper is BoBunny. I added adhesive pearls to the butterfly bodies and tied 3 sheer ribbons around the blue heart and tied a bow. I think with the colors it could be perhaps be used for an occasion other than Valentine's Day. Maybe Mother's day? We'll see.

  24. Are you even going to find my comment on here? LOL! Well this is so beautiful and I agree, it could be wonderful for lots of occasions. And I love how use used the punches. I think the fact that the butterflies don't "really" fit just adds more to it!
