This card however, was made for some specific challenges. However, one in particular I have been wanting to try and get a card done for, however, something else always came along.
Lisa from A Mermaids Crafts is hosting a challenge at Do More with Less. She wants you to create a shaped card with a diecut as the base. She has even done a fabulous tutorial over at the Do More with Less blog.
For this card I actually used my very limited supply of actual dies - I used the Spellbinders Labels 8 set and used the three first sizes.
The card base is made using Kraft paper, and I used my Cuttlebug and the largest size die to make the card.
Now, I have hidden that base card with the papers I wanted to use which were all from a First Edition 6" by 6" paper pack called Spring Feast.
After making the card base, I used the those three largest dies to make the layers of the card. All the layers have been inked with CTMH Sorbet. From the side view, you can see the wonderful sparkle on that middle layer. This paper pack is so pretty.
For something a little different, I added the ribbon diagonally across the first two layers and then the image layer is up on pop dots. Of course I had to put a little bow in that one corner too!
My image is a freebie from Beyond the Fringe Crafts and has been coloured up with my Spectrum Noir markers.
Butterflies PP2, PP4 and PL1, PL2
Vase CR1, CR2
Finally, for the inside, I again die cut the layers and the largest cut was trimmed on the left side to sit inside the card properly. The little butterfly that has been stamped here, is from an InkaDinkaDo stamp set called Insects Inchies.
I loved making this card with the dies! Maybe have to make some more at sometime, or get some more dies LOL!
