Floral Border with Butterflies

A dramatic red and black card today, using the Spellbinders Floral Border Die D-Lites die.

The background was stamped using the small butterfly and a flower from the Elegant Butterfly Clear Stamp Set. The small butterfly, together with the large butterfly from the set, were then stamped again on another piece of red card and this time embossed with clear embossing powder, before being cut out. The two butterflies were then shaped slightly and glued onto the stamped background. The butterflies' trails were added by trimming one of the self-adhesive black pearl swirls. 

The flower border was die cut from a piece of black card. 3mm self-adhesive black pearls were then added to the flower centres.

The card was finished by adding alternating mats of black, red and black card.

Happy crafting!
