letterpressed card

I wanted to build this card around the lovely background, so when I saw this quote I knew it was a perfect fit.

Spellbinders: Impressabilities
Cricut: Storybook (Frame & butterfly)
Font: Rurtania (free from )
Paper string:Wal-mart

For the butterfly I made three cuts. Two regular butterfly cut & Shorty/Holes. Layered one regular cut on top of the "holes" cut. Then, because I thought it needed something else, I cut the body of another regular cut, put a piece of string under, and pasted it to the main piece. The glittered cardstock is stiffer then regular cardstock so I just ran a bone folder down the bottom of the wings and glued the body to the card.
