Memory Box Dies - All in White
Takes a very rainy day to get me back to blogging - sorry for the lapse. Trying to get better, but stuff keeps getting in the way.
Today I have a card I decided to try all in white. We just got in a shipment of dies from Memory Box - these are truly some of the most unique and inspiring dies on the market. I started with a circle die - one with a lot of detail and cut that out in white. Then I took one of the butterfly dies and cut the upper portion out of plain white cardstock, and the solid piece underneath out of a fancy white paper from ANW Crestwood.
The card is compromised of 3 layers of white felt cardstock. The folded card base is plain. The next layer has scored lines made with the Scor-Pal. The next flat layer is embossed with a Sizzix "triple dot" embossing folder - I really like this one. Layers 2 and 3 are attached together with foam tape to give a little dimension. Then the bow gets wrapped around that.
The dies get layered on once the card is put together. Circle first, then solid butterfly and the lacy upper butterfly. I glittered the butterfly body with dry glitter first, then attached to the middle. I use Ranger's Glossy Accents to attach the pieces. It is my adhesive of choice for stuff like this.
Have a great weekend!
