Hello! Welcome! Samantha here sharing a simple background technique using the hills die from Elizabeth Craft Designs Adventure Edges. Landscape dies are one of my favourite die designs –– there’s quite a few ways to use them and if you think outside the box you can create fun backgrounds like the one I’ve created in my card today!
Step 1: Colour in three butterflies using your preferred colouring medium.
Step 2: Adhere Clear Double Sided Adhesive (measurement 3cm x 16cm) to the front of White Soft Finish Cardstock.
Step 3: Remove the release sheet to expose the adhesive layer and apply a generous amount of Diva Silk Microfine Glitter. Brush off excess glitter and return it to the jar, then polish with a fingertip to bring out the maximum sparkle.
Step 4: Die cut the Adventure Edges die.
Step 5: Die cut again to create a thin wavy strip.
Step 6: Using a selected choice of card stock colours, die cut the Adventure Edges die again. Adhering each one on top of another (like a puzzle piece) to create your backgound.
Step 7: Trim off the excess card and stamp the sentiment.
Step 8: (Optional) Add machine Stitched details.
Step 9: Adhere the three coloured in butterflies, embellish card with sequins, a twine bow and adhere to an A6 side folding card base.
Here are two more background examples using this same technique. I personally love how the lady bug card turned out…
Hi Everyone! It’s Karen here. My cards today include a few of my favorite things. They have flowers, they have a combo of Kraft and white papers, and they have adorable Elizabeth Craft Design images! Perfect! My post shows how I do masking using sticky notes. I am also mixing it up using two stamp sets on each of the two cards.
It’s Karen here. One of my good friends recently had a birthday. I wanted to make her something. What’s better this time of year than a new calendar!? Using coasters as a base, I created this fun desk calendar for her! She is into butterflies and loves the idea of transformation, so transforming bar coasters into a cute butterfly calendar is, I hope, the perfect gift. The paper I chose is the 12 x 12 ModaScrap Fly & Scrap collection. It’s simply beautiful!
Hi Everyone! It’s Tina here today from the Coloring Team. I am so excited about the new stamp release by Krista Schneider. To be honest, it was so hard to choose which set to start with. In the end, with summer barely hanging on, I chose the Bugs and Butterflies set. Below you will find the easy steps to replicate this card.
Hello, it’s Anita here today with a butterfly slider card. Please be sure to watch the YouTube tutorial showing how to construct a slider. It is very easy, thanks to the die that cuts the channel in the card front. The butterfly flutters across the card, anchored by a coin or a metal washer that helps it slide. It’s a fun project that can easily be turned into a birthday card or used to celebrate other occasions. Just substitute the sentiment for a different one!
