Butterfly love

I'm in love with ALL the Tim Holtz dies that Sizzix released this January! Simply can't get enough. So, here's a card I created for Sizzix using Tim's newest dies and embossing folders.
 
 
657900 Sizzix Big Shot Machine Only (Powder Blue & Teal)
655091 Sizzix Accessory - Multipurpose Platform
656499 Sizzix Accessory - Standard Magnetic Platform for Wafer-Thin Dies
655093 Sizzix Accessory - Cutting Pads, Standard, 1 Pair
Cardstock: Recollections
Patterned paper: Anna Griffin
Dye Ink pads: Ranger
Others: adhesive, lace, sewing machine, thread

Here are the steps:
Fold cream cardstock to make 5.5" x 4.25" card.

 
Trim kraft cardstock to 4" x 5.5". Place it in the Keyboard embossing folder. Put the folder between two standard cutting pads and place the whole sandwich on Tab 1 of the Multipurpose platform. Pass the sandwich through the Big Shot machine to emboss the cardstock.

 
Lay patterned paper on the blade side of the Butterfly Duo die. Place the die and paper between two standard cutting pads and pass the whole sandwich through the Big Shot machine to diecut the butterflies.
 
 
Place the diecut butterflies on their matching spots in the accompanying Texture Fades embossing folder. secure the diecuts in place with some removable tape. Put the folder between two cutting pads and place them on Tab 1 of the Multipurpose platform. Pass the whole sandwich through the Sizzix Big Shot machine to emboss the diecut butterflies.

 
Rub the Pink Gumballs Dye Ink Pad on the embossed kraft cardstock piece for the raised edges to catch the subtle color. Repeat with the Java Bean Dye Ink Pad on the butterflies. 

 
Trim some lace to fit on the kraft embossed piece.

 
Attach the lace and the butterflies as shown. Machine stitch down the center. Trim all around to make the piece a little smaller than the card front. Attach the above piece to the card.
 
 
Place a standard cutting pad on the Magnetic Platform. Place the Handwritten Love Thinlit die blade side up on the cutting pad. The Magnetic Platform ensures that the die stays in place while cutting. Place paper on the die and cover with the second standard cutting pad. Pass the whole sandwich through the Big Shot machine to diecut the word 'love'. Attach the diecut word between the two butterflies as the sentiment.
 
What would you make with these dies and Texture Fades?

Love the look of that pattern paper embossed and die-cut with the kraft embossing and lace on the card. The inking really brings out the details on those embossed pieces. Beautiful card.
