A card today which I made for my niece's birthday a few days ago. Before she had her two daughters, she used to make the most beautiful stained glass creations. Hopefully, when the children are older, she will have time return to her hobby. The Creative Expressions, Sue Wilson 'Butterfly' die from the Stained Glass Collection seemed a perfect die for her card.
Although there are several techniques for using this die, I decided to inlay it - a perfect way of using up some of those tiny snippets too! I cut the frame out in black and stuck it down firmly on a double-sided adhesive sheet. I put the snippets of different coloured card over the areas I wanted to die cut and then fitted them into the relevant places. It was much easier than I thought it was going to be - a bit like making a jigsaw but knowing exactly where each piece had to go. I matted and layered the completed image, die cutting the green mat with a stitched rectangle die.
I am joining in the following challenges:
Butterfly Challenge #80 ~ Butterflies + B is for Bingo lines and/or the colour Heather (I just used the Butterfly and the colour Heather this time)
