Winged things 1Posted: January 27, 2015
I have more Penny Black prettiness to share today, this time of the creative die variety. There are so many beautiful dies in the new release and this butterfly is one I will probably reach for again and again.
The butterfly on the card above is two layers but cut from three different pieces of cardstock. The underside of the butterfly is a solid red butterfly cut using the ‘flights of fancy’ die. I used the co-ordinating ‘swirling wings’ creative die to cut a lacy butterfly from white cardstock and from watercoloured cardstock. I kept the frame of the watercoloured butterfly for a card I’ll share tomorrow but popped out all the inserts and inserted them into the white lacy butterfly. I splattered some of the same watercolours onto the white card panel and die cut two sprays of flowers with the ‘flower frolic’ die. The little curly ‘hello’ is from a set of three called ‘doodles’ which will be wonderful to use.
