Cut It Out


Hello!  I'm here today with a card for the Cut It Out challenge at The Paper Players.  It's Mother's Day this month in the UK and I've had a couple of requests for cards.  The butterfly and leaves here are fussy cut and the Happy is a die cut.  (They're all from Altenew while the Mother's Day is from Hero Arts).  I really need to invest in the butterfly dies because cutting out those little antennae is no easy task - very fussy indeed!  


Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink, (Wild Wasabi, Smokey Slate, Basic Black) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Butterfly from Painted Butterflies, Leaves from Doodle Blooms) Altenew, (Mother's Day from CL334) Hero Arts
Inks:  (VersaMark, VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko, (Frosty Pink, Coral Berry) Altenew
Embossing Powder:  (Opaque Bright White Super Fine) Wow
Dies:  (Happy) Altenew
Glitter:  (Clear Wink of Stella) Zig
Gems:  Recollections

Yes I agree, the dies are so worth it, I finally got them myself and now don't flinch every time I see an antennae (just maybe a few flashbacks)! Beautiful beautiful card Jen!

This is gorgeous, Jen!!! What a wonderful Mother's Day card. The green on the leaves is the perfect compliment to the pinks in that pretty butterfly, and the gray 'happy' works so well with your design. I really like this card, my friend. It's lovely. Bev
