Time to start a new challenge at Digi Makeover, and this week it's Anything Goes! Along with our July Guest Designer call!! So swing by and join in!
I decided to try something new for my card today. I recently received a little order of die cuts that I have adored playing with. So I pulled them out again to give this little technique a try.
Joy Crafts Butterfly Border was a little temper-mental going through the die cut machine, and didn't cut out all that great. Maybe it was because they weren't in the middle of the plate...I'm not sure, but I had to do a lot of extra work to get them to cut. But basically I printed off my sentiment from Paper Makeup Stamps, then lined up my die along the top of that sentiment and put only the part of the die that I wanted to cut on the cutting plate so that the bottom would stay attached to my card.
I think it turned out super cute, even with all the extra work I had to do to get it cut out :)
It's kept pretty simple since the butterflies add a lot of detail and the paper is all sparkly. I just added a few liquid pearls to give a little more definition to the butterflies.
And this one turned out so cute, I decided to make another one :)
Lin & Lene Heart Border die cut. I LOVE this die and have not been able to stop using it since it showed up in my mailbox :) I had a little trouble getting this one lined up properly on my cutting plates, but nothing that a little bit of ribbon couldn't cover!
