Welcome to day 2 (of 3) of the Impression Obsession 2015 Spring Die Blog Hop! Impression Obsession designers are sharing projects made with beautiful new dies, and there will be gift certificates given away each day! Yay!
For today's card, I chose to use five of the butterfly shapes from the beautiful Medium Butterflies die set to create a clean and simple card that pays of in cute colors, high quality papers, and those beautiful butterflies! I admit, this card doesn't look like much in photos, but in person it's wonderful to feel the quality card stocks, pretty colors, and see the little details of the dies and faux stitching lines.
I die cut the butterflies out of white card stock, placing them precisely where I wanted them using the Sizzix Magnetic Platform. Once the butterflies were die cut, I removed them from the white card stock and set them aside for use on a later project. It was the negative shapes of the die cuts I wanted for this card!
I chose five different October Afternoon patterned papers, and adhered punched circles of each print behind each of the butterflies, filling their space with cheerful colors and patterns. To add to the visual interest of the card, I used my handy dandy serrated tracing wheel to add flight lines for each butterfly, and a pretty dotted detail around the edge of the card.
