Pretty but easy
I made this card quite quickly, it's the kind of card to suit many occasions don't you think? The butterfly is cut from the Art Nouveau cartridge at 4". I've glittered some areas and added gems to pick out the body and highlight the wings. The embossed paper is from Create and Craft. I've added 2 layers beneath, one is the same card as the butterfly and the deeper pink is embossed and again from Create and Craft. The pattern paper I've had in my stash and forgotten about, I cut it with a Go Kreate die. I tend to make a number of die cuts to add to my collection when I've got my machine out as the Big Shot Pro is heavy and takes up space. This means I'm often able to make a card like this quite quickly as the shapes are already done. Likewise when I'm exploring a new cart I again keep what I've cut. It's so useful to work this way when like me you don't have a craft room large enough to work in.
