Friday Die Day

Hello friends
This week I'm featuring butterflies...what's not to love?!
The set is Cascading Butterflies designed by Donna Salazar for Spellbinders.
It comes as a one piece die measuring approximately 4.10 x 6.10 in.
When cut/embossed you have an outer butterfly frame
as well as all the individual different sized butterflies.
I've chosen to make a tag and using the die and embossing only
to imprint the beautiful design.
I've then taken an assortment of the butterflies and over-layed them
onto their matching impression.
My paper is a scrap box find - I'd like to say I'm getting through
my scraps but it may take a few more years yet!

Stamped 'thank you' to the corner, twine tied and little gemstones added.

Cascading Butterflies is available to purchase from your Spellbinders
retailer - also look out for Cascading Stars and Circles -
all equally lovely.
Tomorrow you can find me at The Art of Craft in Farnborough, Hampshire.
I'm doing a workshop in the morning and demo in the afternoon.
As always, if you live that way please pop along and say hello.
Take care friends - have a smashing weekend!

  9. OMG, Christine, these are beautiful! I adore butterflies and owls, so this die is going right onto my wish list. I love the tag you've made, Christine, the die embosses really well doesn't it and the matching butterflies on top really gives it great dimension and adds a touch of colour.
