Mariposa Shadow Box Card - First Edition Mariposa Papers

Working with the beautiful Mariposa papers from First Edition (Trimcraft)  I I took inspiration from the beautiful sheets of butterflies in the 12 x 12 paper pad, there were perfect for fussy-cutting.

I created a shadow box style card so I could have the butterflies flying across the front, I used strips of acetate to allow them to cross the deep shadow aperture.  Some of the butterflies I cut from Dovecraft glitter card in lilac using a First Edition Butterfley die set to add extra sparkle to the glittered and pearlescent butterflies.

The sentiment in the centre is Vellum and comes from a Dovecraft Make A Wish Vellum Quote pad, I cut it from the sheet using fancy edged scissors.  To finish i added adhesive gems in clear and small pinks ones for the butterfly trails.

By using the double sided papers from the pad, I had the inside all ready decorated so just needed to add a panel to write on and a glitter butterfly.
