Hi everyone. Hope no one's snowed in? Well, not without a huge crafty stash to keep them busy anyway.
No snow here and it seems quite a bit milder than yesterday...and definitely dryer as we had lots of rain.
Anyway, today's card is a real tiddler. I came up with the idea (and I'm sure I'm not the only one!) of using the largest die from Spellbinders Lace Doily Motifs in this way when I was making my Christmas cards. I love small cards and I love lacy cards, so these are really cute but very fragile so you can't put masses of embellishments on them. I don't think they need them, though, and I reckon I've found the right topper for this little card.
The topper's from my huge stash so I can't remember where exactly it's from. It's gorgeous, though, and very delicate in itself so it fits this card perfectly. All I did was layered it up and added a bit of glitter to the butterfly and roses. For the inside I have used my MCS software to cut out the middle of the little frame around the topper and added a sentiment so it ties in well with the front. I've had to make a boxcard envelope for this card as it's so delicate. These cards are so pretty but it's not easy to cut out a double layer using this die, and there's awful lot of poking with my poky tool. Well worth it, though, if you're patient and keep trying when it doesn't quite work out.
Hope you all stay safe and warm.
