Pretty Butterfly

Hi, I have a pretty  card to share with you today.
I saw this on Pinterest and just had to try it.
I just happen to have the Stampin Up butterfly she used
but it can be done with any dies.

I just love how striking this looks. 
The butterfly is still attached to the base in the center.
You have to put your die on the paper then just line up the cutting plates on your Big Shot or Cuttlebug to just before the center or body of the butterfly.  Then holding the die in place on your paper line up the cutting plates over the other side or other wing still leaving the body outside of the plates and run it through again.  You should end up with a butterfly with it wings cut out and the body still attached to the paper.
I went ahead and cut out another butterfly out of holographic paper just so I could have that pretty paper on top.  I used my corner punch then tucked my paper underneath.
Thanks for stopping by and hope you like my card.
