I cut all my cards to be 10cm X 10cm. The centre strip is made by stamping the Friend Definition cling stamp using Pumice Stone Distress Ink. I then stamped the sentiment down the side.
That beautiful butterfly is from Purple Onion Design's Vintage Butterfly Set. I simply inked each butterfly with the lightest ink first, then cut each butterfly out. Then I inked the edges of the wings with the darker shade of complimentary ink. I did not want to do any fussy cutting so I did not try to cut out the antenaes, I simply replaced them with gluing wire to the back of each butterfly.
Then I went ahead and "decorated" each butterfly as I wanted, either with stickles, or enamel accent or glossy accent. It was fun! That's what counts! Here are a few close ups:
