Fabulous NEWS, Golden Butterflies in Octagons

Hello and welcome back! I'm thrilled to be sharing my first post with the amazing Dies R Us Inspiration Blog Design Team. What an honor to be joining such a talented group of designers! Thank you for the opportunity DRU. So looking forward to this inspirational journey!

I used Black, Gold and Kraft papers for a striking contrast.

I first multi-cut all Butterflies and center panel

Next, multi-cut the layers that would hold the sentiment and Octagons for framing this.

Next are the layers that go over the cut octagon shaped base card and panel.

Finally, all cuts got adhered and assembled as shown for dimension. The mini Butterflies are randomly placed and large is off-set to show the dry embossing center. All are topped off with  golden bling for added sparkle.

Final assembled card ...
Stamps: None
Ink: Brilliance Pigment Ink Galaxy Gold
Paper; Gold (recyled party paper plates), Black CS, Kraft CS
Accessories: The following CE Cutting dies by Sue Wilson; Classic Adorned Octagons from Noble Collection, Majestic Monarch Butterfly from SW's Finishing Touches Collection, Thank You Circle from SW's Perspectives Collection, Darice - Octagons Embossing Folder
Techniques: Dry Embossing, Lots of Layering (for dimension)
 Hope you like it! :)
