Bright & Glittery Butterfly

I am so excited to share this card with you.   I have had these Double Stick Dazzles, I wasn't exactly sure what they were so one day I got them out and figured out what they were, with the help of the directions.
Here is the sparkly card.
This card was made following a sketch a couple of weeks ago, but just didn't get a chance to post it.   I think it would make a nice get well card or something to cheer someone up. Butterflies always remind me of summer so it would also make a nice birthday card for someone with a summer birthday.
So theses double stick Dazzles are clear and very thin, almost like double stick tape in a shape.

It is kind of hard to see but here is a picture of the package.  There are around 8 medium to large ones in a package and a bunch of small ones.  What I did was peel off the wings of the butterfly (brown part) and stick it to a piece of bright green cardstock.  Then I sprinkle that part with Martha Stewart brown glitter, then the body and colored that part with green glitter and finally the small pink pieces.  It was very easy and the pieces are pretty durable, you have to be careful but they can be handled without them falling apart.  After I got it all glittered I cut it from the green cardstock.
Now that I finally played around with these, I love them and want to see what other shapes they have.
The two flowers on the bottom are buttons that I clipped the back off of and glued down.
Here is a close up of the butterfly after it is on the card.  The swirl is also from the Dazzles.

Glad you stopped by and hope you like my card.  Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think

Donna, has anyone ever told you that you are an enabler? LOL I love your card, especially the glittery butterfly. Where did you get the Dazzles. Gotta have some.

What a beautiful card you turned out!!! I've ordered several Dazzles sets from QVC before, but mine are still packed away! Now, I'll have to pull them out and see what I can come up with. Like you, I hadn't read the directions, so I wasn't certain how to use them.

Thanks for the inspiration!!!

The dazzles are fab and I love what you have done with them. I'm really interested to see all the lovely things you've done with your cricut imagine as my neighbour bought one a few weeks ago but hasn't used it much. You seem to really have got the hang of it.

Now that's what I call BLING! Super sparkly! Love how it looks with the bold colors of the card. I'm pretty sure I have a package of this somewhere. I think I may have actually used it once a few years back. Hmmmm.....
