Using Punches and/or dies at Lexi's Creations....

Hi Susan here...

Well today we not only start a new month but we start a new challenge as well over at Lexi's Creations. It's a fun one...
'Use punches and/or dies'
You will be able to make whatever you want in whatever colours you want for this challenge as long as you use punches and/or dies. Take a look at Lexi's Creations for the full details of this challenge and to set your eyes on some fabulous inspiration from my design team.

Now for my card...

I have gone overboard with the butterflies for this one....The person it's meant for loves them!!

I have used a Tim Holtz edge die, using Kraft card and colouring the butterflies throughout with distressing inks, adding stickles and pearls.

I used a die for the beautiful spray of flowers in the background. I used a rich deep red card from Paper Mill Direct, then I slightly aged it with distressing inks.

The backing paper I have used is a freebie from a magazine, love this paper, gorgeous rich colour, I used distressing inks to age the edges.
The butterflies are a mixture of punches and dies, I have used Kraft card throughout and coloured with distressing inks.
The sentiment is an old wooden backed stamp.

Thanks for taking the time to look and for all your wonderful comments
Love and hugs

  3. I am ashamed of myself Susan. I come to comment and clearly haven't been around since before this post!!

    Anyhow the card is gorgeous. Your colours are really lush, and the butterfly edge is to die for, no pun intended.
