A Friend is Someone Who Chooses You!

Today’s project features the Beauty Abounds bundle paired with the Tropical Escape Designer Series Paper and coordinating colors!

What I love about the Beauty Abounds stamp set is that there are inside & outside sentiments. Here’s the sentiment I added to the inside:

What a great card to send to a dear friend just because! The trick to working nicely with the Butterfly Beauty Thinlits is to back your cardstock with the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets before you run it through the Big Shot. Then, be sure to use the Precision Base Plate and run your dies through longways. That ensures consistent pressure on the die the whole way through the Big Shot.

Then, to layer the butterflies onto your card, first adhere down the less detailed piece first, then it makes it easier to lay the more detailed piece right where you want it. Just start in one corner and take your time!
