Concord & 9th Butterfly Fold Card

I am loving the dies and stamps from a new company I discovered at Creativation (CHA) this year called Concord and 9th. I showed you a card I made with their interlocking Hugs die here on my blog and the same videos linked on that blogpost on how to space and cut the Hugs die also work with this butterfly interlocking die. But I decided I wanted the opening with the interlocking butterfly a bit to the left of the center of the front, so I used the 12 x 12 instructions, but scored at 2 1/8", then folded the other side to meet there. I sponged the beautiful die cut butterfly with Broken China Distress Oxide Ink. I die cut the row of little butterflies into the right side of the card front with a Memory Box die called Butterfly Delights and attached a strip of sparkly blue glitter cardstock behind the butterfly openings. I sponged some of the die cut small butterflies with the same blue distress oxide ink and attached them with glue dots. 

When the interlocking butterfly wings are opened, this is what the recipient will see on the inside of the card. I die cut and attached the Happy Birthday Circle from Poppy Stamps and added some gems and more little butterflies.

I am entering this card in the "use more than one die or punch" challenge at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.
