Card Tutorial: Love You!

I am fascinated by intricately cut papers. Most of us don't have the time it takes to cut papers into such fine details. So, the next best thing is to use die-cuts to do the heavy lifting for us. In the card above, I used a detail butterfly die. You can follow along to see how I put the card together.

Let's start by looking at the  supplies.
All Aflutter Die set
Origami Love Printed Paper
Embroidered Greetings Stamp set

True Color Fusion Ink: Candy Apple
Amaze machine
Cardstock: Whip Cream, Butter Cream, Cotton Candy 
Easy Glide Permanent Adhesive Runner
Journey Foam Squares - Small 

Journey Glaze
Other: scissors, trimmer, pen

Trim cardstock to 8.5" x 5.5". Fold in half to make 4.25" x 5.5" card. 
Open up the card and place the All Aflutter Butterfly die blade side down at about the center of the front flap of the card. Use the Amaze machine to cut a butterfly 'window' on the card.

Trim Cotton Candy cardstock to 4.25" x 5.5". Trim print paper to 4" x 5.25". 
Attach printed paper block to cardstock block. Attach the whole thing behind the butterfly window of the card using Journey Glaze. 

Stamp 'Love You' with Candy Apple ink on Butter Cream cardstock. Cut out with scissors and attach to card with Journey Foam Squares.

Add details with pen.

Here's the finished card. 
I hope you enjoyed the tutorial!
