I have been playing with a brand new butterfly die from Pete Hughes for Sizzix, a new technique and some new ideas from an Online Card Class I am taking on getting more from our dies. The beautiful butterfly was cut out of a piece of glossy cardstock with blue, yellow and green Brusho Crystal Colours spritzed with glimmer mist. I tried a new technique after that on the piece, but it did not work. But I still liked the glossy piece and cut two butterflies out of it. I was going to place one on top of the inlaid butterfly on this card, but it was too pretty to cover up, so I ended up with two cards. I die cut the beautiful butterfly from the center of the aqua blue and lime green diagonal cut card front and inlaid the butterfly in the open butterfly space. I embossed soaring butterflies (Craft Concepts), added some mini butterflies punched out of the glossy colored cardstock with a brand new butterfly punch from Fiskars. I added the word Soar die cut with a new alphabet die from Die-Versions.
NBUS challenge at her blog here and I do love playing with NBUS and am entering these cards in her challenge. I am also entering them in the Anything Goes challenge at ArtbyMiran and the no dp challenge at Crafty Catz.
