I have done this design before, I really like the cake and window on wedding cards.  This one is memory box Gothic "Ironwork" window here   oyster stamps  as also  the cake and the other die cuts.

the bride and groom stamp is by Stampin up "Marry me" ..had to do a few attempts to get it right in the window!!!! text is computer generated.
The cake this time I embossed in a sizzix folder.

butterfly window

Good morning everyone
Wish the weather would change, hate wind and rain.. roll on summer..

Wanted to try  a different style of card, never seen this idea done before, made up as I went along as usual.
New I wanted a cut out  acetate window, with chicken wire and a butterfly, this is what it turned out like.

The butterfly.. I die cut the outline die  one first, (Chloe) with double sided sticky sheets,  the solid butterfly (Tristan)was cut with modelling  clear film, I then stuck the outline butterfly onto the solid shape, heated  with  a heat gun to shape, then removed paper from the double sided sheets and glittered.
time consuming but you get a solid butterfly that stay the shape you made.

card is slightly open..
this is the card closed, pearl gold card inside..
