4 X 4 Butterfly Cards

A square cards makes for a great design and a 4 X 4" size looks really nice.  I made a whole bunch of these, for each of our new In Colors.  
I used watercolor paper for the 'banner' piece and stamped it with background stamps from Watercolor Wings and You've Got This.  Stamping on watercolor paper gives a different look to the image, with added texture. 
I added a smaller die cut butterfly over the larger one, in the same color as the card base.  The larger butterfly is stamped in a 3-color combo and then die cut.
For a touch of bling, I added 3 rhinestones to the center of the small butterfly.
The smaller butterfly is die cut from a new set of framelits.  Did you know that the Butterfly Basics stamp set and the Watercolor Wings stamp sets coordinate?  And, to make it even more exciting, they both coordinate with 2 of our sets of dies --- Bold Butterfly Framelits and Butterflies Thinlits.
Once you realize how these stamps and dies coordinate, you can start dreaming up endless amounts of cards and projects that you can make using them.  
These were really fun and, when you get an assembly line going, they go together pretty fast.
