This pretty die template is the Spellbinders Butterflies and is one of their expandable range
I have been informed that this die is available and so if you see it grab it quick as once it is gone ... it will be gone forever
Helen Aiken has just found it here at Sunrise Crafts for you Butterflies Pattern
Todays post is to show you two different ways in which I have used this die.
I created a frame around the cut piece with Matting Basics and added it on foam pads to give dimension
I wrapped it all in pink ribbon before adding it to my base card.
Then I added the bow with a dazzler for the knot and a little sentiment that can be for any reason you wish.
The outside edge of the frame has been surrounded by a white pearl strip that is self adhesive and it is from Want2Scrap
I have added a small heart to each of the Butterflies
I spattered the butterfly embossed background piece of cream card and added it to the same green card as the Butterflies.
The Butterflies have been layered two together and the wings bent upwards slightly
Each Butterfly has a pearl body and small trail just to add the finishing touch
The verse on the second card is from Sheena Douglass "Little Bit Sketchy" range
And there you have a very easy card that looks nothing at all like the first card and yet uses the same expandable die template.
I hope you will enjoy playing with any of the Spellbinders that you have in your collection and looking at them in ways other than their intended use.
More tomorrow ...
