Beautiful Butterflies Day Two

Hello all! It's day 2 of the Papertrey Ink Countdown and from the looks of it, it sounds as if some of you are as excited as I am about Beautiful Butterflies and Beautiful Butterflies Die Collection. Both will be available beginning February 15th at Papertrey Ink.

Well, I'm back today to share a couple more samples with you....
Today I'm bringing the dies into play! I began by die cutting one of the butterflies from the edge of a Rustic White cardstock block. This cardstock block was cut to the same size as the card front.
Stamped the Rustic White card base with two butterflies and a sentiment in Summer Sunrise, Berry Sorbet and Kraft. Stamped the die cut cardstock panel with a Lemon Tart butterfly and then attached over the card base with dimensional adhesive.
After creating the first card I had to put the left over butterfly die cut to use and created this one. I stamped the die cut with an Aqua Mist butterfly and attached it to a Rustic White card base with dimensional adhesive.
Stamped a couple additional butterflies and a sentiment in Enchanted Evening, Sweet Blush and Smokey Shadow ink. Then finished the card off with a wrapping of cream twine.

Well, that concludes my second look at Beautiful Butterflies and Beautiful Butterflies Die Collection. I truly hope that you've enjoyed! I'd love to know what you think, so please share!

Now, be sure to visit Nichole Heady for peeks at the sets of the day. Also, Dawn McVey, Lisa Johnson, Beth Silaika & Melissa Bickford have peeks to share with you of their newest sets for the month.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
