ID: DT Aug/13 - Memory Box Butterfly - If Nothing Ever Changed card
size: .5"w x 7"h

Created: August 17, 2013

I recently saw a UTube video using Shimmer Sheetz, Sookwang Tape & glitter, recorded by Els from e craft designs. She taught this technique several years ago, but it's been a while since I tried it again...

I'm using a quote stamp from Quietfire Design 


I side folded my white card. Adhered a piece of textured cardstock (Ruche) edge to edge.

So as per video, I embossed a piece of Shimmer Sheetz (color: mauve Iris) using Craft Concepts "Wings" folder. I then applied 6"wide Sookwang tape onto 110# white cardstock. Removed the release paper and pressed my embossed Shimmer Sheetz onto the sticky surface. Used a rubber brayer to press/burnish the Shimmer Sheetz onto the sticky surface. Then carefully pulled the Shimmer Sheetz away from the sticky surface, leaving the "Iris" layer on the sticky surface. Sprinkled Glitter Ritz micro fine glitter "Warm Highlights" all over and burnished well. returned the excess glitter to the jar.

Did this same process with the other side of the Shimmer Sheetz.

So now I have two background glitter pieces. One I layered onto a magenta colored cardstock. Inked up my quote stamp with Versafine Black Onyx and pressed down well onto the glittered sheet and clear embossed, being careful not to over heat. Adhered this layer onto my main card

The other background I die cut the LARGE butterfly (Memory Box "Finn"), it has a 5" wing span so it's large... Cut the solid underneath piece from white pearlescent cardstock and adhered the two elements together at the body only. Then used a black Sharpie pen to color the body. Added some pearl tipped stamen for the antennae.

I had some left over areas on the glitter sheet so die cut a bunch of mini butterflies using the drop outs from the Memory Box "Butterfly Delights".
