Tutti Designs - Swirly Sympathy Die

Hello, my friends!

It's Monday, and I'm back with a new Tutti Designs share!

This week I am sharing the Swirly Sympathy Die.
It's part of the October Release.
You can find it in the shop HERE.
Unfortunately, we all need this type of card on occasion. 
Some people are able to make several of these to have in their card stash.
I'm not one of those people.
It seems I always need one at the last minute.

This lovely word die helped me put this card together very quickly.

I cut the die out of blue patterned paper.
I adhered it onto another patterned paper with a glue pen.
I added some ribbon, a bow, and adhered it to the card base.



Finally, I added some pearls to the center of the flowers.


Having the sentiment die on the front of the card
leaves lots of room to write a message on the inside.


Other Materials Used:
Papers: Recollections - Cardstock, K & Company - Watercolor Bouquet;
Ribbon: Offray - Picot Edge;
Bling: Kaisercraft - Pearls.

Tutti Designs - Flourish Butterfly Corner Die

Hello, my friends!

It's Monday, and I'm back with a new Tutti Designs share!

This week I've created another card with the Flourish Butterfly Corner Die.
It's one of my favorites!

I came across this paper in my stash when I was working on another project.
I thought it would be perfect for this lovely die.

First, I cut the die once from a patterned paper.
This paper was from the same collection as the background paper,
so it matched beautifully.
I adhered that cut into position on the base.

Then I made another cut from a plain matching cardstock.
I fussy cut only the butterfly out of the diecut piece.
I folded the wings up, and adhered the second butterfly on top of the first along the fold.




To finish the card off, I added a pretty sheer bow, and some lovely sequins.


Here you can see the lovely dimension of the second butterfly.


Materials Used: 
Papers: Prima Marketing - Madeline, Recollections - Cardstock;
Sequins: Dollarama;
Ribbon: Celebrate It.
