Butterfly Layers

This is my post on the
Dies R Us blog today!

Hi, Diane with you today!

Did you see all the NEW dies at the Dies R Us store?
Wowzers, there are so many and I want them all!!
I orderd some right away and have a couple to show you today!

I did a pretty much clean and simple card
by using 2 new Memory Box dies.

I started with Spellbinders Fleur de Elegance for my
base for the butterflies.

The next die is one of the new Memory Box dies
This die first cuts the butterfly "free"
and is attached only in the middle,
allowing it to "flutter".
Then you simply emboss it...
leaving "angel wings" next to the cut out part.
Make sense?....
When you purchase it, you will see right off what I mean.
I would suggest using removable tape to hold it place
while cutting and embossing.

Then I made a nice discovery.
The new Memory Box Stitched Vivienne Butterfly die
fits perfectly on top of the Angel Wing Butterfly!
(As soon s I can find the link, I will add it, 
for some reason it will not show up...sorry)!

So I first cut the Angel Wing Butterfly in white,
then cut a second one in red, this time snipping it off,
then cutting the stitched butterfly in blue.

I slightly staggered them, as it was the look I wanted.

A few pearls and a sentiment were added to finish!

Come back tomorrow and every day Monday-Friday for more inspiration!

Wow! Pretty! Love the CAS and the red and blue layered on white. We're on the same wavelength with the butterflies. I just made a butterfly card yesterday! Love that gorgeous Spellbinders die, too!
