Happy Tuesday Guys!
I hope you are not too fed up with my Sue-fest as yet, today I am showing the first card I made with the second die I bought. Remember when I said I could only stretch to 2 dies well that remains true so I am determined to use them as much as possible to justify another spend next month (still lusting after the foliage and striplets!)
As I am sure you guessed by now the other die was also a background as I find these so flexible, especially this one as it can be cut and layered up with foam. This one is from, what else but, the Spanish Collection Click HERE to see the die.
I started by cutting the die in pearl card and inking the foliage through the handy veins. Next I cut out the square from the centre panel, coloured it and stamped the sentiment. This was foam mounted onto another of the full die cuts withe the frame mounted above that.
I layered this onto a sheet of random paper form my stash edged in plain green card. This was then placed on a larger mat of the same papers with a strip of ribbon running down. Finally this was all foam mounted onto a hand cut plain cream card made form a half folded sheet of A4 hammered cardstock.
I cut the butterfly form the same backing paper, using Spellbinders Les Papillions 2 die, and added this above the bow with a few pearls.
A simple but effective way to use the backing die which really got my engineering juices flowing so this die may show up on a few Saturday projects.
