Sweet Dixie Parasol turns Butterfly

Using the Sweet Dixie Filigree Parasol from Sue Dix Summer 2016 Die Collection from Personal Impressions two cards have been created from one die.

Whilst looking through my scrap boxes for odds and ends to add to a master board I came across some die cuts of varying shades, it seemed a shame to  cover them in paste and paint..

So I set them aside to first create a simple Get Well Card, 
layering the filigree parasol with added embellishments.

Cutting the parasol handle off & using three parasol die cuts per wing, the wings are layered to create their dimension and embellished with Golden Rod Ranger Stickles. The centre of the Butterfly is created using the parasol handles previously cut off and a lavish focal embellishment placed centrally.

Both sentiments are from Making Cards February Edition and are Free with the Magazine.

Two handy cards made from little odds and ends..

Thank you for taking a sneak peek.. I hope you have a creative weekend..
