Stained Glass Butterfly Birthday Mail
by Angie Cimbalo

Main 1

Hello and welcome, it's Angie here today today with two cards featuring the "Stained Glass Butterfly", "Pinpoint Burst" and "Birthday Mail Posh Script" dies.
Here's a look at my 2nd card:

Main 2

For both cards I cut several black and white butterflies with the die and stacked them up slightly offset from each other.  The plan was to back them with smooshed watercolored paper for the first card, and an alcohol inked panel for the 2nd card.

For card 1 I used the "Pinpoint Burst" die on the white back panel and on the 2nd card I used it directly on the alcohol inked panel.

I added the stacked butterflies to their backgrounds and then added lots of clear fairy gems to the centers of them. The sentiment "Birthday Mail" was die cut from black, white and the smooshed/alcohol inked panels and stacked for dimension. I love that this die has both the thin letters plus an outlined die. It makes it so versatile and you can use it in many ways.

Here's another look at both cards:

The first card is a regular A2 size card and the 2nd card is a mini slimline card sized at 3" by 6".

I absolutely love combining dies to create card with no stamping.  Memory Box has so many wonderful versatile dies to combine on your cards, be sure to give them a look on the Memory Box website.

Thanks so much for stopping by!





Both of these are gorgeous but I especially like the first one. I love those colours a lot and it speaks to me.

The butterfly die is so versatile and pretty. You’ve done a great job with the selection of backgrounds. Beautiful!
