Beautiful Burlap Butterfly

I have been wanting to try other materials in the Big Shot for a while now. Up until this card, I have only tried die cutting card stock. So a little while ago, I went to the fabric store and picked up some felt and burlap. I was very happy with the results of how easily the Big Shot cut through these materials.

There are a number of things I would like to point about this card:

I found that the burlap was very prone to fraying. To keep it from fraying away, I used some clear nail polish along the edges of the back of the butterfly. I let it dry before gluing on the felt butterflies.

The burlap and chocolate butterflies are from the Beautiful Butterflies Bigz die. The Rose butterfly is from the Beautiful Wings Embosslit die.

The Perfect Polka Dots Folder is used on the Chocolate Chip background. I did not place the entire piece of card stock in the folder, but just put it about 2/3 to 3/4 of the way in the folder.
