Top Dog Dies See the beauty in life + Picture Tutorial.

Hello friends!! Top Dog Dies has a new release this coming April 5th! and the new dies are amazing, you can see them all HERE. The DT is showcasing all these new dies, so visit their blogs to see amazing (believe me, I have seen them) projects!

So, today I have a really cute butterfly card, and it was in so much crafty mood that I made a picture tutorial for YOU!!

Here are the steps:

1.- Die-cut Top Dog Dies Butterfly to make the base of you card from Yellow cardstock. Die-cut the butterfly from Top Dog Dies Butterfly Finishers from  Splendor Sunshine Patterned Paper (Echo Park Paper). Die-cut a Top Dog Die Bella Doily Die to use as a stencil, add Embossing paste in opposite corners.
2.- After embossing paste (you can use your heat tool to accelerate the process), spray Sunflower Sparkle Perfect Pearls Mist. 

3.- Die-cut butterfly wings from Patterned paper using Top Dog Dies Butterfly Finishers, spray Sunflower Sparkle and Melted Chocolate Mists. 

4.- Using Claret StazOn ink and a sponge, dab color on top of some of the embossed areas. 

5.- Die-cut butterfly parts from Brown cardstock, adhere them to card. 

6.- Die-cut a couple of tags from  Top Dog Dies Mini Tags Die Set, stamp sentiment in Claret StazOn ink.

7.- Adhere tags to card using twine. Add a rhinestone under butterfly antenna. 

This is the final look!! I think it turned out really pretty!!
