Butterfly Bendi Card - Slainte - May The Wings

Yogi here today with a St Patrick's day card... I'm using parts of a couple Silhouette files. Click on any file image to purchase. 

I'm also using a Quietfire Design Irish Blessings quote stamp "Butterfly Circle - May The WIngs" 5pce set

Opened the "Butterfly Bendi Card" in Silhouette Studio, ungrouped them and repositioned or removed some of the pieces, enlarged it so that my main back piece was 5" wide and overall height 7". It had to be cut in 2 sections and then spliced together at one of the fold line seams. Painted the white cardstock with Distress dabber "Shabby Shutters". I suppose I could have used colored cardstock, but I have a tendency to just use white and then alter...

Cut the shamrocks, enlarging them to approx1.5"w. Painted them as well with the shabby shutters and then went over it lightly with "Peeled Paint".

The "Slainte" was painted with "Lucky Clover" in a dry brush fashion. Cut a shadow layer and painted with "Forest Moss".

I colored the body part of the butterfly with a black marker. Applied adhesive to the wings and sprinkled with various glitters.

Stamped the quote (masking the author's name) using Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed, Then stamped the author just below.

Assembled and adhered everything.
