Garden Poppies & Butterflies

Happy Sunday!

Kathy with you and today I have a slider card to show you using some pretty pastel colors for spring and 4 beautiful CottageCutz Dies.  I used 2 new dies from the  Garden Delight ReleaseGarden Poppies and Garden Delight Butterflies and 2 dies from previous collections, Victorian Window and Laundry Line.

Here's a view from the side so you can see it really is a slider card!  (It's hard to tell from the first photo!)

The card base and all the die cuts were done with white card stock and the pieces were colored with VersaMagic Chalk Inks and make up applicators.  I used Thatched Straw and Spring Pansy on the window, bird, and butterfly.  The flowers and stems were colored with Spring Pansy and Aloe Vera.

This is a 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" slider card.  I used an embossing folder border for the lower front.  I added the window die with pop dots using a piece of lace under it to show through the window to look like a curtain.  I cut the flower piece in half so I could put some on each side of the window.  I added a second layer of flowers on the "open" ones glueing them at their center and then added Lemon Chiffon Mini Prills.  The bird was added with a pop dot.  Then I added ribbon and trim below the window using Scor-Tape.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment on a piece of white card stock and added it with pop dots to keep the card open.  I then glued the butterfly down it's center with glue and added Lemon Chiffon Mini Prills.

These are the dies I used:
