Now on to the card(s)! I can't believe that I have forgotten to post Izzy's butterfly idea from the Orion die! I even have two cards to show today to make up for my blunder! The first card is the demo card that I did in Feb. I started with a piece of coconut white card where I had cut the bottom using the cutting edge from the Orion die. I embossed it with the Bed Of Roses embossing folder for texture. I cut the Orion die in Blush card using both cutting edges and glued it to the bottom of the embossed panel. I added a piece of blush card that I sugared with Diamond Sprinkles so it was just peeking out from beneath. I stamped my sentiment and cut it out with the New York Collection tag and inked it with Spun Sugar before removing it from the die. I made the butterfly by cutting up two of the Orion dies. Rather than trying to explain how I cut it, Izzy kindly made me a sort of template showing how it was cut and I have included it below. It is so much easier to follow that way! My antennae are a bit different, but it just shows you more options. The finished dimensions are 7 1/2" x 7 3/4" in size.
The second card is pretty self explanatory, using the same embossing folder. I added a few small butterflies from the Magical Butterfly die set. The finished dimensions are 7 3/4" x 9" in size. All in all, a really fun way to have a play with your dies to see what else you can create, don't you think? All for now, Sue x
