I used a double sticker for almost every little butterfly you see on these cards. Simply done - just apply your first butterfly where you would like it and add a tiny dab of secure glue to the top of the body. Next remove the stickiness from the second sticker using an embossing buddy or powder. Then line up the second butterfly over the first on top of the glue. I sort of bend up the wings to give dimension as you can see in the picture above.

Embossing folders on white are so elegant! You can use almost any embossing folder to achieve this same elegant look! Always add something interesting on the inside of your card too!

For an added value consider adding multiple style appropriate sentiments in your gift pack. If you do remember to place some double sided tape on the back of each sentiment so that the recipient can easily select the sentiment they would like to use - remove the tape backing and attach it to their card : )
