Simon Says Stamp - Mirror hearts into a Butterfly!

Happy Monday crafty friends! Sharing a Simon Says Stamp brand exclusive card today!

So I am in love with this detailed heart from the Ornate Love set that was in the last Simon Says Stamp "You Are Loved" release.  I originally wanted to do a mirror heart card, but when my husband saw it he said "what a beautiful butterfly" lol so that's what it became :)

I started by finding the centre of my Bristol Smooth paper panel and placing my stamp aligned to the centre of the cardstock in my Misti and stamped the heart. I flipped the panel and stamped it a second time using Versafine Onyx Black in so that I could use my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers.

Once that was done, I die cut a large butterfly with a die from my stash using Tonic black glitter paper and cut the centre of the butterfly and glued it to the panel.  I chose the fantastic Hello Beautiful Gorgeous dies from Simon Says Stamp and die cut it from both White and Black glitter specialty cardstock both by Tonic and glued it to the panel a little offset so the black would frame the white.

I then used one of the Lawn Fawn Stitched Border dies above and below the panel and trimmed it. I added some Sunny Studio paper in the background and finished off with some Studio Katia Chunky Butterfly Glitter and Sequins.
