May Glimmer Hot Foil Kit of the Month: Stitched Glimmer Butterflies

 This month's kit has 28 pieces, a mix of dies and glimmer plates, with the ability to make a full butterfly like I have on my first card, plus 2 smaller ones in profile.  AND you can add stitching too!  Here's my first play with the kit.

supplies: pink, black, and cream card, pink metallic kraft cardstock, Stitched Glimmer Butterflies, pink glimmer foil, enamel hearts

I cut the butterfly body out twice, once in black and pushed out all the little details, and once again in pink, leaving them intact.  Then I layered the black over the pink.  Next I heated up my foiling machine and using pink glimmer foil on pink card, I foiled the inner details for the wings, then used a matching die to cut them out and attach them to the large wings.  The body was cut from pink metallic cardstock.  I foiled one of the 4 sentiments in this set in the same pink glimmer foil on cream card.  And lastly I added some tiny enamel hearts on the butterfly and near the sentiment.

Here's another picture with the card tilted to show a bit more of the glimmer.

For my 2nd card I did only stitching and switched to blue accents for my butterflies......I also used all 3 of the butterflies and foiled another of the sentiments in black this time.

supplies: black, blues, and white cardstock. Stitched Glimmer Butterflies, blue embroidery flosses, black glimmer foil

If you're a butterfly person, you may want to look into this one!

You can find all the information you'll need HERE to get this fun kit for yourself.  You'll have until May 24 to join the club, and you can "unjoin" at any time!  Each month you'll also get a roll of glimmer foil!
