Dream Butterfly
by Sue McRae

Hello crafters! Sue here with all things metallic and shiny!


I used lots of gilding flakes on my card today, so lets get started.

For the background I took the Floribunda Collage and die cut it twice from a piece of A2 card stock to create a stencil. I taped this over a piece of white card stock and sponged on glitter glue (which dries tacky). I removed the stencil and added my gilding flakes over the flower images.


I die cut the Dream Butterfly from teal metallic paper and created a base for the butterfly which I covered with double sided adhesive and added a different color of gilding flakes.


To finish the card I heat embossed the sentiment with teal embossing powder and foam mounted it to my card base.


Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Hi Sue, I have a question for you regarding an old project.


I am trying to make a swiveling multiple page resume using an eyelet. What you did with the Christmas tag in this older post is exactly the effect I am trying to get. My question is, do I need a special eyelet/grommet or tools to create this effect? Or will any eyelet/eyelet setter create this?

Thank you for your time, love your work!
