Hello and welcome back! I can’t get enough of DIEcember! If you know me, then you know that die cutting is my jam! There are so many awesome things in this release! Have you checked it out yet? Today’s project is featuring the new Stylized Butterfly, so let’s get right to it!
My first order of business was spraying some Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock with some Dina Wakely Gloss Sprays. I was going for a quasi rainbow feel, so the colors that I used were Lemon, Lime, Magenta and Ocean. I got a set of twelve sprays for my birthday, and I gotta say, I’m loving them! Once I was done with the sprays, I set that panel aside to dry.
I used the new SSS Imperia Plate to create the background for the butterflies using Neenah 110lb, and I die cut the SSS Stylized Butterfly from my sprayed panel three times, because I wanted some movement across the card. I also cut the butterfly three times from black cardstock, and adhered those together using liquid glue.
I glued just the inner edges of the butterflies to the background panel, along with their center body portions as well, trimming off the excess as needed. I chose a SSS Sentiment Strip that complimented the card well and adhered that with foam tape for dimension.
My panel was then adhered to the card base, which is also Neenah 110lb, and I added some confetti for that added pop of bling. Everything needs bling, am I right?!
I really like how this card turned out! I think the addition of the black shadow to the butterflies really added a lot of interest and contrast that was needed. I hope you like it, and I hope you’ll stop by and check out the entire DIEcember release! Lots of good stuff for sure! Have a wonderful day and don’t forget to stay awesome!
