Today’s card is all about die-cutting, starting with the amazing Botanical Backdrop Die. I die cut the backdrop twice out of green card stock, then glued and stacked them together. I masked off the edges with purple tape, and used Copic markers to add shading to the leaves.  Next I went through my scraps of card stock (this die set is a perfect way to use your scraps!) and pulled out several different pastel colors. I die cut 3 different styles of small flowers, and again used Copic markers to add shade to the petals. I glued the flowers together, and started work on a background. I used Atlantis Burst, Blue Blitz, and Solar Flare Tonic Shimmer Powders on watercolor paper, blending the powders together with water. Once I was happy with the blend, I used my heat tool to dry the paper. I glued the frame onto the background paper, then attached it to an A2 size card base with double-sided adhesive. I glued the flowers onto the petals, then assembled the word Hello and the butterflies.

I die-cut each butterfly (it was a website exclusive freebie) twice out of vellum and used a small dot of glue to adhere them together. I die-cut the butterflies again with black card stock, and glued the black bodies onto the vellum.  My last die cut was the with the Hello word die. I die-cut the words three times out of white card stock, stacked and glued them together, then glued the word to the card. I arranged the butterflies around the word, then glued the bottom layer of vellum to the card.  My final touch was brushing the butterfly bodies, flower middles, and Hello word with a Nuvo shimmer pen, then adding Nuvo Crystal Glaze for shine.
That’s all I have for today. Thanks so much for joining me, and I will see you again next Tuesday with another Sunny Studio Stamp creation!
