Missing You

Hi everyone, today for my DT card at Cheery Lynn Designs I am sharing with you a few tips on how to get dimension into your Dies cuts.

My card today uses Maja Design papers,  I started by cutting out my Stacker layers and tattering at the edges with my scissors and tearing out small sections of the paper and inserted my lace style die cut for detail.

My butterflies were all cut out twice and I moulded the wings to give shape with my fingers. I pressed them into my Versamark Ink pad and heat embossed with a Pearl Embossing powder. Whilst still warm I held my wings so they stayed curled as they cooled and would then constantly remain in this shape. This is a great way so your wings don't flatten especially if posting a card.

My flowers I sprayed my die cuts with a little water and moulded each petal in a concertina effect. I next dried with my heat gun and then teased my petals back out to show the crinkles and shaped the layers on my Embossing mat then added a Pearl and Stamens into their centres.

I accented my Doily top and bottom of my card adding half a flower onto them and used the matching mini Doily behind my centre butterfly.
