Everyone loves the beautiful card that Dave Brethauer designed to introduce the Spring 2015 Collection.. I'll admit that I loved his watercolored, layered design so much I just copied it!
Here's Dave's original design...isn't it beautiful?
- NEW Reverse Butterfly Collage Die 99145
- Open Studio Stitched Rectangle Layers Die Set 30009
- Darla Butterfly Die 98264
- Isabella Butterfly Die 98507
- NEW Follow Your Bliss Stamp B2060
Brush water onto watercolor paper and paint it with Peerless Watercolors. Air-dry it for about 5 minutes while the colors mix and mingle - then press it with a dry iron on the cotton setting. Cut Reverse Butterfly Collage from textured white cardstock.
Here's a tip - attach the diecut layer to the watercolored paper - then cut both of them at once with the Stitched Rectangle Layer. Everything lines up perfectly and you have nice, neat edges.
Another time-saving tip - attach Scor-Tape behind gold mirror cardstock, then cut the antennae. Cut the Darla and Isabella Butterflies from glassine (or a glassine envelope) - and use the adhesive-backed antennae to attach the butterflies to the background.
Stamp Follow Your Bliss with Golden Glitz.
