Stained Glass Foiled Butterflies and Quilted Card Backgrounds

I was up on the Therm O Web blog recently using quilt blocks as inspiration for cards. Check out the pretty quilt blocks:
I was inspired by the butterflies and stitched blocks to create some of my own butterfly and quilted looking cards.
First, I die cut the butterflies from Therm O Web Toner Sheets using my Silhouette Cameo. Then I foiled the butterflies with Therm O Web Deco Foils and a laminator. Next, I adhered the die cut butterflies to acetate and cut around the outside. Then I colored in the open spaces with Copic markers to create a stained glass effect.
 To create the card background I grabbed 6x6 patterned paper and adhered the middle of one corner to a 4.25x5x5 card panel. I continued to adhered corners of different patterned papers down, making sure not to put adhesive on any of the edges.  Once the whole card panel was covered, I trimmed off the excess by flipping the panel over and then machine stitched along the lines to give the background a quilted effect.
 I combined stamping and die cutting to create my sentiments.
I created a video for Therm O Web where I show how to create the stained glass butterflies, quilted backgrounds and put the card together. You can check it out here:

And here are a bunch of the supplies I used:
Thanks so much for stopping by!
