As promised. ..

A few blog posts back I shared a card tutorial demonstrating how versatile die cuts can be. For those who missed it check it out here...
I ended up making 2 more cards using this die cut set from Kaisercraft.


Here is card number 1...




Supplies used: 
Kaisercraft Collectables Fly Free, Fly Free Sticker sheet, Rhinestone - silver, Decorative Dies - Tag Shapes

Other: White cardstock, Wink of Stella - clear, Gold thread, Gold pen, Copics V09 R37, Sequins, Stitched Rectangle Die


And card number 2...



Supplies used: 
Kaisercraft Collectables Fly Free, Fly Free Sticker sheet, Rhinestone - silver, Decorative Dies - Tag Shapes


Other: White cardstock, Wink of Stella - clear, Gold thread, Gold pen, Copics V09 R37, Sequins, Stitched Rectangle Die.


I've added a few how to photos with the second card, the process is pretty simple - it's all about placement. I'm sure there are a few more other ways I could position this die cut to create different backgrounds for my cards.

'Love Butterfly' Tutorial:


  • 1. Using white card stock die cut a rectangle. Alternatively use measurements below to cut a rectangle.
Measurements: 4 1/4 inches x 5 1/2 inches

  • 2. Using pattern paper die cut a smaller rectangle.
Measurements: 4 3/4 inches x 3 1/2 inches

Adhere using double sided tape to white card. 

  • 3. Using the fishtail tag from Kaisercraft Decorative Dies - Tag shapes - die cut 4 tags (using white card).
  • 4. Optional: Using a masking technique create a little gold border (fishtail end of tag) using gold leaf pen.
  • 5. Position tags (see photo)
Use double sided tape to adhere tags to card. 
Next die cut (the rectangle again) or trim off excess white tag using scissor/guillotine.

  •      6.  Add interest.
I used 1x butterflies from the FF collections and a sentiment from Kaisercraft Fly Free Sticker Sheet. I stuck some gold twine down using glue dots (positioned behind butterfly).
Added the butterfly using foam dots to give the card some dimension. Then added sequins and some rhinestones.

  •     7. Adhere this to card base.
These 3 cards make a lovely set. I'm really pleased with how they turned out and I love how subtle the chevron geometric shapes are.. :)





Dies are available for purchase here at Paper Flourish along with their current card kit for July.

Happy Crafting and thanks for stopping by!
