Negative Butterfly





Good morning!  Both the Moxie Fab World and Just Us Girls are hosting challenges to use negative die cuts so I thought I'd play along.  This card uses one of the 10 zillion pieces of 12x12 patterned paper that I have collected over the years.  Always exciting to actually use a piece!  :)  Hope you're all having a lovely week so far!




Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (Basic Grey) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Botanical Silhouettes) Papertrey Ink
Ink:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Die:  (Butterfly) Papertrey Ink
Gems:  (Bumblebee assortment) Doodlebug

LOVE! Great choice of dp - I love that you can use a very busy dp and still end up with a CAS card by just showing little peeks of it!

Jessi Fogan said...

Indeed a terrific way to use that busy but beautiful pattern - love how you left a border peeking out too! And I really need to get some more grey paper - it's quickly becoming my go-to!
