Two contrasting cards with a Spellbinders butterfly die1
Hi everyone, Barbara here today with a tutorial using one die to make 2 cards.
The die I've used is a relatively new one from Spellbinders, called Cascading Butterflies
Firstly I cut two pieces of Papermilldirect card stock 7" x 7" in smooth black and hammered white, then cut the die out of both pieces.
This is how the die cuts the image.....the actual butterflies will be saved for a future project.
This is how the card pieces look now.
Now I put the black butterfly die-cut frame into the white background and vice versa.
On this card, I placed a piece of inked, white hammered card stock behind the frame and mounted onto an 8" x 8" card base which I made from 2 x A4 sheets of white card.
On the white card, I mounted the 'topper' onto a piece of inked card stock as I did for the previous card. I ran the die through again, using a seperate piece of inked card stock, but this time only kept the butterflies. These were then adhered to the corresponding 'gap'.
A few sequins, a little bit of Rangers 'Stickles, a couple of die-cut sentiments and I was finished.
Hope you've found this tutorial interesting enough to persuade you to get your dies out and do something similar, using both positive and negative die cuts. This this is my favourite die of the moment.....but that changes on a daily basis
Until next time.....happy crafting,
