Hello, Altenew friend! This is Virginia fluttering by with two projects featuring Radial Butterflies Cover Die. I am excited to show you how I only die cut once to create two very different butterfly cards! Let's start with Card #1.
Important: Before I started, I adhered the Classic Crest Solar White 80 Lb Cardstock to the Masking Paper. This will give the entire sheet an adhesive backing.
I then ink-blended the background by using the Small Ink-Blending Brushes. Starting from the top, I applied Pink Diamond, Citrus Burst, and Mountain Mist Crisp Dye Inks, and finished it off with Magenta Crisp Dye Ink. I then die cut Radial Butterflies Cover Die and saved all the butterflies for my next card. I then die cut Fancy Celebrate Die with Gilded Ombre Washi Tape.
For the embellishments, I also die cut the Radial Butterflies Cover Die with Gilded Ombre Washi Tape. This ensured that the entire card has a cohesive look.
Remember that I saved all the extra butterflies from the die-cutting? Thanks to the Masking Paper, I could easily position them in a cascading fashion. I then did some masking and did more ink-blending.
This time, I used nearly the same colors with a few more bold colors such as Coral Berry, Maple Yellow, and Azurite Crisp Dye Inks.
Once I finished ink-blending, I peeled off the butterflies and re-positioned them around the negative white space. I managed to stamp “thanks” (Tall Alpha Stamp Set) without any issue because the butterflies can be moved around. For the final touches, I added a few Satin White Sequins. I absolutely love cards with a bit of movement.
Aren't Cover Dies so fun and versatile? I hope this gives you an extra idea on using Radial Butterflies Cover Die. You can definitely try out the techniques with other cover dies such as Radial Hearts and Radial Stars! Thank you for stopping by!
So lively and vibrant!! Beautiful projects!
Virginia, these are so wonderful – I feel like we were crafting together again! But you’ll have to wait to see my flutter-bys!!
These are gorgeous! Love how you used the
negative for one card and some (most) of the
butterflies for the second card!
This is beautiful.
Lovely cards! So cool that you could create two great cards with one cover die. The color combos are wonderful.
