Big Shot Butterlies

The Big Shot makes paper crafting so easy. One of my favorite Embosslits for the Big Shot is the Beautiful Wings (#118138). An embosslit both embosses (makes areas raised) and cuts the images out at the same time. The Beautfiul Wings Embosslit makes 5 different butterflies at the same time.
For this card I used the embosslit with 4 different colors of cardstock; Whisteria Wonder, Pumpkin Pie, Pretty in Pink, and Melon Mambo. Since the embosslit is so small (2-1/4" x 2-1/2"), it is a great way to use up small scraps.

You can stack the butterflies to give them a little more dimension. I used the largest butterfly for the center focal point and stacked two together for the bottom row. They are held together with a dab of 2 way glue pen. The rhinstone accent is the smallest in the package. There is one of the largest ones in the corner of the large butterfly. All the butterflies are then attached to the card using dimensionals. I cut smaller pieces off the dimensional sheet for the small butterflies. I still had a number of the butterflies left over, so I attached sever of the smallest ones to the inside of the card with some 2 way glue pen.

The little tag was made with the Tiny Tags Stamp Set and the Jewlery Tag Punch. The Tiny Tags Stamp Set does come in both wood mount and clear mount. The pieces are rather small, so I do suggest getting them in a wood mount. They are much easier to clean and stamp with this way, and much harder to loose accidentaly. The piece of Designer Paper at the bottom is from the Flirtacious Specialty DSP and ran through the crimper for some added dimension.
