Created the card base.
- To get started, she centered the Wonky Square Slimline Insert die in the center of the Slimline Deckle die and used blue painter’s tape to attach them together on the flat side because she then cut four of these from white cardstock and adhered them together. Do you not LOVE that dimensional look?
Then she set the frame on her card front – NOT adhering it yet – and used temporary adhesive to attach the little squares back in their spaces and removed the frame and set it aside.
She removed the wonky squares, adhered the frame to the card base and then adhered the little squares back inside their gaps. This ensures that the edges of the squares don’t get covered up by the frame.
Carol cut the Kite Die, Small Butterflies Die, Garden Stems Die, and the Small Flowers #1 die from white card stock. While you can certainly cut them out of colored card stock, Carol used her Copic markers because, in her words, it’s easier to find the right color marker than it is to sift through all her card stock! We are sure you can relate!
She echoed the dimension from the frame on the kits bows – can you see that they are doubled up? Be sure to cut extra if you want to copy this great idea! She also bent the edges of the bows up a little when they were completely dry to make them look like they really are fluttering in the breeze.
Carol shared a PRO TIP: Add some temporary adhesive on the back of your bitty die cuts and set them back into the space from where they were cut. This makes it SO much easier to color without them moving all over the place or tinting your manicure!
Next, she stamped the sentiment from Brush butterflies, trimmed it down and matched her coloring using a copic marker on the little mat and popped it on there.
