New Poppystamps Release and Blog Blitz

I am so excited to share my card during this Poppystamps Blog Blitz.  The new dies are FAB-U-LOUS and I'm thrilled to show you just a few.  When I saw the new dies, I knew I had to have the Samirah Butterfly.  I cut and layered the Samirah Butterfly over the Murana Butterfly, that I cut from vellum.  The red motion dots are what fell from the wings.

The border die was cut twice, once using the Swirly Curl Border Outline, which I cut from glitter card stock, the same card stock was used on the butterfly and the frame of the sentiment.  I then, using white glitter card stock, cut a Swirly Curl Border Background.  I glued them together a glued them to the white card base, which I ran through an embossing folder.

I printed the sentiment on vellum using the Bella Dona font (love the font, the name, not so much!)  Printing on vellum kept the ink wet and I was able to heat emboss it.  Pretty cool I think!  The hardest part of this card was cutting the glittered border to place over the sentiment.  I then glued them together and raised the sentiment with pop dots.  The butterfly was also pop dotted.
And here's what I did on the inside.  I again cut the Swirly Curl Border Outline, and only added glue to the side edges and the bottom edge.  This created a little place to slide in the white decorated piece.  I left just enough space for a note.  The butterfly is the Delaney Butterfly.  Beautiful isn't it?  And again I used the red dots from the Samirah Butterfly...waste not want not right?  They were too pretty to throw away.

You could win one of these dies, all you have to do is leave a comment on the Poppystamps Blog page.  You will have to pop over to the Poppystamps blog page to see the die I'm offering.  

Until next time....Hugs from me to you,
