Butterfly Beautiful Birthday

Hi there.  I am sharing a CAS birthday card today..  It was really quick to make since most of the pieces were from snippets I already had.



A few Sundays back, I had a craftydate with friends (Loll, Christine and Susan) and we did smooshing with tissue paper and Distress Oxide (DOx) inks.  I came home with seven different pieces.  The Wilted Violet / Cracked Pistachio one was used here.  It was glued to a scrap of white cardstock and then die cut with a NBUS hexagon die.



The hexagon die was then used to die cut on a white Stitched Rectangle snippet panel.  For dimension, the hexagons were also die cut from black cardstock and stacked for dimensional inlay diecutting.  The sentiment was black heat embossed.



The outline butterfly was attached to the solid butterfly only in the centre to allow the wings to move freely for a 3-D effect.  The butterflies were also snippets. And that finishes the card.


Thank you for visiting.  Have a great day!
