Mini Squares


I used a 1 inch ruffled square punch and punched out a multitude of  squares
Inking each square around the edges

On a mat of white paper 5x6" I drew a faint pencil line diagonally from corner to corner
Working from the middle I started placing my squares along this line
Moving from row to row until the entire surface was covered, leaving a small space
between each square showing the mat below
I trimmed the square to 4 x 51/4" and placed it on my card front

Next I punched out a Martha Stewart Monarch Butterfly,
Inked the edges and used some Diamond Stickles on the wings
I took some light weight purple beading wire to form the antenna
and popped the butterfly up on the lower left of my card front.


On the inside I used a script stamp over a piece of printed paper from
the K&Company Best of Brenda Walton stack
I was given the butterfly (which was cut on white cardstock) in a RAK
so I used some spray and glittered it up,
ran it through the Polka Dot Embossing Folder in my Cuttlebug and
stamped it with a My Sentiments Exactly stamp

The last step was placing some small pearls
where each square met at the corners

What an amazing technique. The resulting card is beautiful... both inside and out!
