Since I bought my Big Shot earlier this year, I’ve become completely obsessed with card making and my crafty stash has exploded. I’ve expanded out into stamping and embossing, as well as getting more imaginative with card shapes and designs. However, I very quickly needed some inspiration and found it amongst the hundreds of Video Tutorials on Youtube.
This one by catherinestamps gave me the idea of creating my own design, shown below.
|Dies used are both Sixxix Framelits
Using Catherine’s idea of ‘Floating Inlaid Embossed Die Cuts,’ I cut out my butterfly shapes and stuck them on to the acetate, creating the cut out effect. At the time I didn’t have any sentiment stamps, so added some spots of ‘Nuvo Glitter Drops
‘ to add a bit of embellishment to the right hand side of the card. Overall, I’m pretty happy with what I’m calling my ‘first draft’ of this card, and can’t wait to try it out again!
