The moment I saw the Butterfly Aperture die from Elizabeth Craft Designs I was in love and decided I needed to do something special with it right away. For this project, I used Ranger Alcohol Inks to create the colored background that I then die cut into the butterfly. I then used both the positive and negative parts of the die cut on two cards with two different color schemes to create two completely different cards using the same design. Please check out the video tutorial below to see how I made it. Thanks!

    Wow, oh, wow!! The patience it must have taken to take out each little piece, take off the release paper & stick them down. Well worth it though as both these cards are drop dead gorgeous! I thank you for showing your mistakes. It’s encouraging & helpful to see how you work around them. It’s anything but dry on the west coast of BC. lol

      I’m so glad you liked them Teri. It was fairly time consuming and would have been easier to just stick the black detail layer down on top of the Yupo but I wanted the die cut inlay effect. I usually share my mistakes because I hope they are helpful and I’m glad to hear they are. Isn’t it always kind of wet (but gorgeous) on the coast in BC? Lol!
