Love

Happy Friday!! I hope you have fun plans for the first weekend in May!! It's my turn to post on the Die-Versions blog and I'd love for you to stop by and say hi :)


The card I'm sharing with you today uses several Die-Versions dies, including the new Butterfly Border Punch die from the newest release. I started with heavyweight black and white cardstock and distressed the edges with a Zutter DIA.


The yellow paper is from Authentique. It was embossed with a TH Sizzex Regal Flourishes Texture Fade. The edges were distressed as well. The arrow is a Die-Versions This Way Wee Petite die. It was cut once in white and once in black and offset for a shadow effect. It was popped up with foam tape for dimension. "Love" is from My Craft Spot's Tiny Tags 3 stamp set. The heart is a Die-Versions Heart Doodles Wee Petite die. It was covered with Doodlebug Designs Sugar Coating and popped up with foam tape. The buttons on the bow and the two at the bottom of the page are Die-Versions Buttons Wee Petites dies. The flowers are a mixture of Prima, Wild Orchid Crafts and The Paper Studio. A Die-Versions Daisy Flair die was cut in vellum and tucked among the blooms.


The Butterfly Border Punch die has quickly become my favorite. I cut it with the yellow paper and then embossed the white paper. I then placed the yellow over the white and the embossed butterflies pop right through the cut-outs. I added crystal gems from Recollections. I added a couple of the punched out butterflies to the banners made from crinkle ribbon.

A sunshine card for sure on this pretty yellow masterpiece. Love that butterfly border, and the way you have been distressing the edges of the dp too. You have so many layers & embellies to enjoy with each new look. And I have been really liking the way you have been tucking an extra little vellum trim in among the flowers. So very beautiful. Happy wkend, TFS & Hugs
