I was thinking about the positive and negative challenge and then when the Release Party challenge was to divide a panel into pieces, I thought of this technique. I forgot how many little pieces are in this die when I picked it out to use!
I die cut half of the butterfly from the black cardstock and carefully removed all of the little pieces. I taped the cardstock onto a piece of white cardstock, lining it up about halfway across. I laid the die cut back in the hole and used this as a template to place the little pieces back in position. I then flipped the die cut over, ran it through my Xyron machine to put adhesive on the back and adhered it on the white side, matching it up with the negative side. I matted this layer and adhered it to the card base with some foam squares.
I stamped the sentiment, die cut and matted it, and adhered it below the butterfly image.
