Happy Birthday

Here I began by inking a background with a couple of shades of Distress Oxide inks and then heat embossing a WOW background stamp in silver. From this I cut the butterfly die, plus 2 more from white card. I stacked the white die-cuts and inlaid them with the inked versions. The frames of each butterfly are quite flimsy, so in order to get them stuck to the card front accurately, I dry embossed the die into the card to give me the exact position for securing outlines. This meant that all the inlays fit perfectly.
