Butterfly Best Wishes BRAK Card

On my last visit to the Glitter Pot I picked up some Ranger Metal Foil Tape Sheets.  I thought they would emboss beautifully - and they do!  I was so impatient to try it out I didn't pay close attention when I put the sheet in the Vintage Wallpaper folder so I ended up with a debossed design but it looked fab anyway!   The tape is adhesive backed so after embossing I just peeled off the backing sheet and stuck it to the Baja Breeze card base - after adding a strip of narrow Early Espresso ribbon.   

I then die cut a Baja Breeze butterfly, stamped it with the Bella Toile stamp using Early Espresso ink and sponged the edges.  I  scored lines on both sides of the body, attached a pearl stamen as antennae and then added blue pearls.  To keep the wings popped up, I added dimensionals with the backing paper still on behind each wing.  I used the elegant frame stamp from the Four Frames set for the sentiment.  I punched two Early Espresso Designer Label shapes, cut them apart, layered them behind the white label and popped the sentiment up.  To finish off the front, I added punched photo corners with blue pearl accents.

Then I stamped the envelope flap and added die cut and embossed butterflies to the sentiment oval inside the card.
