6.  Cut a piece of 29 lb.Translucent  Vellum 6" x 4".  Use Xyron Double Sided Tape to adhere to the inside of the short flap of cardstock.  The vellum should line up straight with the cardstock to complete the card base.

7.  Stamp matching Unity Fly With Wings of Hope butterfly, using Versamark ink and heat emboss with LSG Silver Moon Turquoise.  Shape the die cut butterfly and adhere slightly above the stamped "shadow".  Stamp the sentiment and heat emboss with black powder.

Wow! The artisan has gone to quite a length to make this card! It's so much fun to create. It would be easy to change it up with a different color scheme. I think the stencil adds a great lacey texture to the butterfly wings and the color draws the pieces together. The pearl swirl definitely adds movement to the piece too. Lovely! Thanks for sharing!
