Happy Easter



Happy Wednesday!

Today I have an Easter card for you using 3 of the new Garden Delight Dies from The Scrapping Cottage!



I've used the Garden Floral FrameGarden Delight Butterflies, and the Garden Butterfly Vine.  All the pieces were die cut with white card stock and colored with chalk inks (Aloe Vera & Pink Grapefruit VersaMagic) and make up applicators.  This is a quick technique I like to use sometimes on the more "lacy" type dies.  It doesn't need to be perfect, just add some color wherever you like!

Here is a close up of the beautiful dies:




I glued the die pieces to a white mat that was stamped with a sentiment and embossed with a folder.  I then added a mat using Lime Granita (Coredinations) and popped it on a white card base.   The butterfly was slightly shaped with my fingers, glued down by the body only so the wings came up and decorated with a little bit of Diamond Stickles on the edges.  White Opal Pearls were also added to the butterfly body and flower centers.  To finish the card, I added a small bow and adhesive pearl.

These are the dies I used:
