I die-cut the hexagons and mounted them on die-cut pieces of white foam so there is lots of dimension. I arranged them randomly on my card front, making sure to leave room for the sentiment. A small butterfly finishes the design. To keep the wings of the butterfly raised, I added a small drop of glossy accents on the underside of each wing and let it dry completely. The I folded the butterfly, adding glue along the center line and a dot on top of each of the glossy accents, which keeps the wings fold upwards, even going through the mail. :)

I hope you'll come play along at the Snippets Playground. It's a great challenge to encourage us to use up our snippets (I doubt I will ever use them all up ... but this helps!). Di & Parsnip make it so fun and you'll get to meet lots of wonderful crafters. It's a fun place to be!! Thanks again to Di for having me as Guest Designer!
