I love this butterfly die by copics with 4 embossing folders and also this Sizzix small butterfly embossing and cutting die. I cut butterflies from different pattern papers and one from grunge paper and then highlighted the raised edges with Distress Ink.
I cut the background piece of paper for this photo with the Sizzix Top Notes Die and also a piece of acrylic packaging from the die and then I ran that through my Big Shot using an embossing folder. I used alcohol inks on the edges of the acrylic piece and the raised it off the photo using buttons between the two pieces and then adding a button on top. These buttons all came from a package that I picked up at Wall Mart.
This is the butterfly that I cut from Grunge Paper. The red glitterie wavy stuff is from a Christmas Pick that I had around and the flowers are made from silk flowers layered with punched paper flowers.I used red Stickles for the butterfly trails.
He was a cadet in the Air Force in Texas in this photo, going to school to become a pilot. He went on to fly in all Theaters during WWII. What a baby. I don't even know if he was 21 yet in this photo.
I cut the 12" square pattern paper using a template from a purchased border paper and then I used thick double stick tape to mount it on the brown background paper. I stamped around both layers with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. Look at that curly light brown hair that I had.
