To make my Butterfly Wish card, I stamped the Butterfly Dream image repeatedly across a white panel then heat embossed it w/ white powder. The distress inks were then sponged across mainly the left side & I let them fade to white on the right. Some random water dots were sprinkled on top, then I took a water brush and lifted the color from the little leaves & added just a touch of green. It was die cut first w/ the largest matting basic die then I used one several sizes smaller to cut out the inside & I inserted a white layer between them.

The first part of the greeting was also done using emboss resist & the Wish die cut was double stacked. The Daisy Garden border die was cut out of white then I separated the diamond part from the flowers and attached one under the top layer & the other on top. I found some wide pink tulle polka dot ribbon & fussed w/ it a bit until I arrived at how it looks now. 
Here’s a look at the inside.

Please be sure to comment on all the DT will be so appreciated & also increase your chances of winning!

    Your projects are always so amazing. I love everything about this. The color combination is perfect and the tulle ribbon really softens the whole design. Thanks for sharing

  • Mary:

    Julie this card is stunning. So many things I love about it – the way you stacked your background layers with the white in between. The little green leaves. The “Make A” stamp. And then of course the tulle…A beautiful work of art worth framing!

  • Mary Holshouser:

    This is beautiful.
    From the die cut on the side to the
    pretty ribbon tying it all together,
    The shading of the colors, and the
    wonderful butterflies – this is
    a card I would love to receive.
