CADB Post: Die Cuts

Hi everyone! It's the end of summer break, and I'm getting ready to go  back to work, and the kids are getting ready to go back to school. Wow, how the summer just seems to fly by way too quickly, even though we had over ten weeks off. Today we will be getting in one last outing, which will be a trip to the movies, before we go back in a couple of days.

Anyway, getting to the topic at hand, my card for this week's them at Card A Day Blog, die cuts. Here is the card I made.

I started off with a 5.5" x 4.25" white card base. I then added a dark blue piece of card stock cut to 5.25" x 4", rounded the corners, then embossed it with the Victoria Cuttlebug folder. For my next layer, on a piece of white card stock, cut slightly smaller then the blue piece, I cut a window in the middle using the next to the largest die from the Spellbinders Labels Eighteen die set, rounded the corners, then embossed it with the same Cuttlebug folder. On the inside of the window, I adhered white lace seam binding on the back side, then attached that piece to the top of the blue paper.

For the butterfly embellishment I used the smallest butterfly dies from the Spellbinders die set,  Les Papillions Two. I cut the bottom layer out of the same blue card stock that I used on my card, and white for the top layer. I added a rhinestone to the middle of the butterfly, then added it to my card.

I hope you enjoyed hearing about how I made my card, and try to make something like this for yourself.

That is a beautiful card Jill and my favorite spellbinders cut too. The blue is striking against the white. TFS
