here ya go:
(patterned paper: basic grey, bo bunny, doodlebug; glossy black cardstock: ranger; butterfly dies: quickutz; gem flourish: prima; labels: dymo; ink: colorbox; adhesives: tombow mono runner, 3m foam tape, sewing machine)
it's a challenge card, even! for kazan's sketch 43 at 2S4Y. i am submitting it on the final day, naturally. 'cause that's the way i roll. (by which i mean slowly...and at the very last minute!)
i used my brand new two-part quickutz butterfly die (my december VIP coupon purchase from cut at home--many thanks to dearest june for the emergency compatibility info!) i cut two layers of the body and one of the outline and then machine stitched them all together and attached the "compound butterfly" to the card with foam tape. i love how much dimension it has!
next time i think i will try adding even more layers and see what that does to the dimesional profile.
by the way, it's saturday...
the new prompt is up at tyggereye art...
HEART the ART??!
Wow! The die arrived already AND you used it!!! It is fantastic; I was *shocked* that you chose pink for your butterfly ;) I am a little envious of the sewing on your cards. That is a technique I have loved for years (Tracy does it a lot and even on her scrapbook pages.) But, I don't have a sewing machine and I'm quite sure I do not remember how to thread the bobbin and all that stuff.ReplyDelete
Good luck @ 2S4Y, not that you need it!
