Butterfly & Bold Butterfly Thinlits Compliment each other

I designed this card to show off how beautifully both the Butterfly thinlits and the new Bold Butterfly thinlits compliment each other.
Both sets have a small and medium delicate cut out butterfly and an outline butterfly the same size, so the delicate cutout can sit perfectly over the top, or in this case, cut out the perfect shape to show off the delicate design.
The card from in also embossed using the Butterfly embossing folder.  I also coloured the Whisper White Stitched Satin ribbon using the Mint Macaron ink pad and a Dauber.
The greeting is from the Stake Your Claim stamp set and cut out using the Handpicked framelits.
