I saw this great challenge across at AAA Cards
Wow... now that made me stop and think. How do I create a card using only die-cuts - no stamping! I had such fun with this challenge and decided to make the most of some DSP and a couple of Dies.
You might recognize one of the elements from my post yesterday :-)
Here's a closeup of the elements from the two die-cuts I used - a sentiment and a butterfly.
I took a piece of the fabulous DSP from Altenew - I love the big, bold, graphical images on it. I die-cut the sentiment out of the DSP and then 3x out of 80# Neenah Solar White. I adhered the layers together and used the in-laid die-cut technique to place it back into the opening.
For the butterfly, I die-cut the butterfly out of a matching piece of DSP and then mounted it just above the sentiment. I made sure that I cut the butterfly from just the right place on the second piece of DSP so that it would blend with the background in the same way as the sentiment did :-) I placed a small piece of foam tape underneath each wing to ensure that it stayed lifted from the card base. All I need to do was add a gold enamel dot and some shimmer and shine to the butterfly
Here's my card:
Isn't that paper gorgeous? I love it and think it works really well with the in-laid die-cut technique.
I'll be back tomorrow with another post for you. In the meantime, warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift tonight.
