Spellbinders Butterfly Corner Card

Good Morning Blog Friends

Here is a card featuring  Heartfelt Creations Butterfly Corner Die.  A very intricate and beautiful die that can be used in a variety of ways.  Here I have simply die cut two corners of a piece of blue card stock measuring approximately 7 1/2 x 7 1/2 inches.

The close up here shows how beautifully this die cuts and how elegant it looks.  I would not, however wish to cut this die without wax paper unless I wanted to ruin my day and get myself in a bad mood; infact, it is advisable to use two layers of Cut Rite Wax Paper and even then I sometimes have to pass it through the machine a couple of times and move the card around on the plate.  However, I think you'll agree that it is a gorgeous die and well worth the effort.  I have highlighted the cuts with  some pearls and gemstones.

The stamp comes from 'Quietfire's Gentle Words '.  I cut the second and third largest of Labels 30 to form the frame cut from some vintage paper and added a few black gems to the frame.  I think lables 30 is one of my favourite labels; the shape is interesting and I like that the largest label is really big and can be used for a small card.

I used Spellbinders Les Papillions to cut the butterfly.

 The large flower was cut with vintage paper using Spellbinders Grand Peony Creations.  I added two rolled flowers cut from felt and  a few black feathers for effect.

The swirl cut from plain black cardstock comes from Spellbinders Jewel Flowers and Flourishes.

Hope you like it and let me say dear blog friends how sorry I am that I have made promises to post in the last few weeks and not kept them.  I am not going to make excuses; all I can say is I have not done it intentionally or lightly.  To ensure that this does not happen again I am now only promising a post when I know it has been photographed and scheduled.  I appreciate your visits and hope you will pop by tomorrow as I have another post SCHEDULED.

 Have a lovely day.
