This is a card that I made a part of a session of CAS cards at the craft group that I go to with a few friends. It is heavily influenced by Michelle Short's cards, and you can see the card that specifically influenced this one here.
Firstly, the butterfly aperture was cut from a panel of white card using the largest butterfly die from the Spellbinders Shapeabilities Butterflies 2 die set.
The sentiment, from the Woodware Happy Anniversary stamp set, was stamped below the aperture using Versafine Vintage Sepia archival pigment ink. The panel was then 3D'd over a small panel of the duck egg blue swirl paper from the Papermania Bellisima paper pack onto a square cardblank.
As a finishing touch, Ranger Crystal Stickles were applied around the aperture and a few blue gems were added to the body of the butterfly.
