Clean & Simple Cardmaking Class - Day 3
One of the tutorials today is a card similar to this where you make diecuts and then layer them til they are thick like chipboard, and use a monochromatic palette. I don't have any suitable dies yet, so I used the butterfly punch. In the tutorial, the die cuts overhang the edges and she trimmed them, but I didn't want to even attempt to trim my butterflies. I was afraid they were too thick or the layers might peel apart! Besides, they're not that big and I thought it would look funny to have them off the page. At first I thought I couldn't add the little layered dots that are on the sample, then I remembered the little circles that are part of the Stampin' Up Owl punch! So I used them. The result is a very pretty card that I hope stays glued together on its way to our heroes! Thanks for visiting!
