Partial Die Cutting-Black Butterfly

Hello My friends:
Partial die cutting...

front partial die cutting black butterfly
 
this technique uses the same idea as the technique that I shared right here last week with the card on how to make 
a Flower border edge die 
using a NON-border Die 

but  instead of making a border edge card I die cut partially the wings of this butterfly to make them pop from the card...the butterfly is only attached to the card by the center

I posted this card at the French blog: "Un brin de Créativité"  for my DT assignments for Memory Box

Step 1;
place the die onto the paper,  secure it with tape and mark with pencil on both sides where do you want the cut to end...
step 2:
recipe of the sandwich using the "Cuttlebug"
plate A+ plate C+ die (ridges up)+ paper + plate B (the plate B stops at the arrow)
note: remember the edge of plate B is where you want the cut to stop

steps on how to partial die cutting black butterfly

step 3; one wing cut, it pops from the card
step 4; repeat same process on the other side of the card. Both wings popped up

I used 3 different stencils from Memory Box...raindrops, Tessatina and leaves
make sure to ONLY stencil the background, not the wings...

the leaves where sponged with 2 colors of ink : green and Black
Make sure to mask the places that you do not want to show...
