Butterfly Peek-A-Boo card

Hello!  Today's card is one I like to call a Butterfly Peek-A-Boo card because you can see the pretty designer series paper behind the beautiful butterfly.  What do you think?

I saw a similar idea on Pinterest, so I thought I would give it a try myself!  I cut the Whisper White layer 3 3/4" by 5" and used the medium butterfly in the Butterflies Thinlits to cut out the butterfly. Next, I ran the panel through the Big Shot with the Polka Dot embossing folder. I cut a small rectangle approximately 3 1/2" 
by 2 1/2" (big enough to cover the butterfly hole) from some pretty paper from the Flower Pot Designer Series Paper, and attached it to the back of the Whisper White panel.

Next, use SNAIL adhesive to attach this layer to the Blushing Bride layer.  Use a 2-Way Glue Pen to apply some glue to the back of the butterfly's body, and press the butterfly back into the cut-out area. Gently curve the wings out, and add a large pearl for the butterfly's head.

Here is a close-up of the butterfly:

I used the Hello You Thinlits to cut the "hello" from Night of Navy card stock.  And, since it is Sale-A-Bration, I used the Simply Wonderful Sale-A-Bration stamp set to stamp the sentiments inside and on the envelope flap.

Here are the supplies I used for this card:
