Gorgeous Butterflies from Tattered Lace

Hello My Crafty Friends,

This morning I have a couple of projects to show you that I did for the Tattered Lace Linen and Lace Shows last week on Create and Craft.
Both cards feature the large Butterfly that was also suitable for cutting fabrics and so made an excellent die for applique and patchworking projects too. The card base was 7" x 7" so this gives you an idea of how large the die it!

I simply cut this Butterfly and then sponged through the detail on the die with distress ink to highlight the detail.  I also went around the edges of the die to bring a little more of the colour into the design.  I used pearl drops around the flourishes to add a little more embellishment.  I also embossed the background pearl cardstock with the Tattered Lace Butterfly folder and used their Ultimate die at the bottom half.

This second project was again using the same die but cutting it in half and making it look as if it is just coming into the picture.  I cut 2 and layered it up with Pinflair Glue gel.  I used the open flourishes on the actual die to create the background with distress ink and then added a variety of flowers and leaves for more prettiness!

I hope that you like my 2 offerings today, please leave me a comment if you have time - I would love to hear from you.

Many thanks and bye for now
