Heartfelt Creations - Butterfly Shadow Box Card

Good morning!

I have a birthday card to show you today!!!
This beautiful butterflies are wonderful for a friend or sister, mother, daughter aunt...they are so feminine and gorgeous!

I've combined a shadow box with a 5 1/2 X 7" card to create a beautiful scene surrounded by flowers.  
Look how well the sentiment goes with the curved dies!!!

I used ruffled Petunias again on this card...I just love the way they look!


Other Products:
White card stock, Stickles-Diamond and Crystal,  Cosmic Glimmer glitter, light green card stock

Card size: 5 ½ X 7”.  Make card base  and cut a  piece of decorative paper from the Butterfly Dreams paper to cover the front leaving about 1/16” border of white.  Use a coordinating paper to cover the front of the shadow box then use the square die to cut out the window. Cut another piece of decorative paper for inside the box and then put the box together.  Sponge pink ink around all the edges.  Glue box to card base on the right side of base.
Stamp Sentiment using Vibrant Fuchsia on white then use the plain edge of the Delicate Border to die cut the sentiment.  Sponge pink on the edges.  Cut 2 Delicate Borders out of light green stock to match paper and glue to edges of sentiment.  Die cut 3 Festive Holiday dies, place 2 at an angle on the top portion of the shadow box then glue sentiment on top.  Glue the 3rd Festive Holiday die on the left side, on card base.
Stamp, die cut and sponge color on the Butterfly Dreams Border, Wildwood Blossoms, Petunia Blossoms and leaves.  Form leaves, and wildwood blossoms with Deluxe Flower shaping kit and round the backs of butterfly wings with the large stylist as well.  Place the petunias in mold and mist then run through die cutting machine.  Pinch petunia petals to pleat and ruffle. Let them dry completely then pierce each one in the center and add stamen one layer at a time gluing between each layer.  Add Prills to centers of wildwood blossoms.  Cut one butterfly completely off one of the Butterfly Dreams border to stand alone.  Add Stickles to Butterfly wings and stems of the Butterfly Dreams border (there are two different borders in the Butterfly Dreams Border).  Add Cosmic Glimmer glitter to the little round blossoms on the Butterfly Border.
Glue the Butterfly Border to the left side of the shadow box and the single butterfly to the top right.  Glue the leaves and blossoms on the left side, on the base, over the Festive Holiday die.

Thanks for visiting today!!
God bless you!

Romans 5:6-8 New King James Version (NKJV)

Christ in Our Place

For when we were still without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die. But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
Can you imagine someone taking your punishment even while you still did not know Him or worse yet, hated Him??  That is what Christ Jesus did for ALL who would turn to Him and believe in Him.  ANYONE, no matter how great the sin is welcome if they go to Jesus, ask forgiveness, except that He died and rose to life again, except Him into their heart.  To from whatever sin you are practicing and live according to His word.  He is kind and good and gives good gifts to His children, you don't have to be afraid to follow Him!  He loves you more than father, mother, husband or wife...He loves you without condition and WANTS you to receive His free gift of eternal life with Him.

As always your creation is absolutely amazing mate. Your instructions are always fantastic, but wouldn't it be better if you flew here and did a masterclass in creating Heartfelt magic!!!! I'll pick you up from the airport. Xx

Oh, Robin, this is so gorgeous (as are all your Heartfelt Creations)! Your flowers are so beautifully, and I love the design and always love the decorative dies that dress up your cards. I'm with Susie -- when can we all meet in Australia?!?!? Hehe! Hugs and extra tender love, my precious friend! xoxo

All a person can say is Wow! This is an amazing look. I am going to study this card picture and your instructions. I would love to try to create something similar to this. I'm laughing to myself. Maybe a mini or condense version.
