Wow I was amazed how fast October flew by and now here we are, wrapping up November!
I made a card to share at Mixed Media Mojo, our November Challenge is to use "Thanks" in some way for your creation. There is still plenty of time to play, this card is fun to make and can be done with what you have on hand. I love using what is available, so I don't lose the mood to create by getting distracted :)
I used Core'dinations cardstock, love the texture and colors! The butterfly die is Tim Holtz Alterations Layered Butterfly. Love this die, it includes an embossing folder to add the texture and diecut it out perfectly.
I cut the butterfly out of a manila folder. Then I colored it using Distress Paints. To get the dark color in the valleys of the embossing, I used Distress Ink on the embossing folder before embossing. I made two die cut butterflies to layer them and make it pop up.
The butterfly is mounted on white Core'dinations. I added Distress Ink to the white edges.
The "Thanks" sentiment is stamped on a left over scrap from the butterfly cut. The sentiment is Newton's Nook "Falling Into Autumn" collection. The frame around it is Unity. The leaves and berries are the same Newton's Nook set, love it!
By cutting multiples of your diecuts or even punches, it is a fun fast way to get depth and dimension.
Have fun with Fall colors and have a great day!
