The Theme of Tonight….The Beauty of Simple Die Cutting - Project Three

 Photograph World© Geoff Wilkinson - Design World © Lyn Wilkinson All Rights Reserved

Tonight is the last of the three projects in this series and I wonder if you can guess who had more influence in designing this card, based on the colour theme. If you follow the blog regularly you will definitely know! 

For the previous two cards we used dies designed by Sweet Dixie and Wild Rose Studio and we used different embossing folders as a contrast. The project in the photograph above is slightly different as it combines dies from both Wild Rose Studio and Sue Wilson at Creative Expressions. I have heard Sue Wilson say that she designs  her dies to work in conjunction with each other. I think that you can combine dies from different designers on your projects, which not only makes your projects more interesting but also means you get the most out of your dies.

The Butterfly dies used are the same as in the previous project, the "Peacock Butterfly" and "Little Butterfly" from Wild Rose Studio. 

The die at the bottom of the card was cut out in both black and white card using the Border die, from Sue Wilson's, Creative Expressions French Collection - Corner, Border & Tag die set. The set contains three dies. The white die cut was stuck over the black card using Cosmic Shimmer Acrylic glue. I hope that you can see from the photograph the shadow effect that this creates. The same technique was used in the top right hand corner of the card, this time using the Corner die from the set. I think both of these dies work really well with the delicate wings of the butterflies. 

Rangers Liquid Pearls in "Platinum Pearl" was used along the body of the butterfly to add some colour. Finally we stamped a sentiment from a stamp set by IndigoBlu called 'B.F.F', using a Rangers Archival "Jet Black" ink pad.

So that was the last of the projects in this series and as promised below are details of our next card making workshop. I hope you have enjoyed all the cards and reading about how they were made.
