Today's PMS Monday Challenge is to use die cuts and punches, excluding Nesties. I started with a butterfly die cut from SU! and ran it through the Cuttlebug with the swirl embossing folder. Next I punched out tiny hearts from some iridescent paper to line the edge of the butterfly wings. The outside of the wings are also propped up with dimensionals to tilt them out from the center of the butterfly's body.
Then today's Technique Challenge on Splitcoast is to use punches to make layer buttons. How perfect! I used this circle ribbon slot punch to punch out 5 cardstock circles and 1 designer paper circle. I stacked them up and taped them together. Then I covered it with Frost Versamark and glossy glaze EP a couple times to give it the hard shiny look like a button. How fun!
The saying from Paper Makeup Stamps is also embossed and punched out with SU!'s Key Tag punch. I used a border punch from Michael's for the bottom of the white layer. It's hard to see but the white layer also has all these ridges running through it from a texture plate. Add some sponging, gems and ribbon and that's the completed card! :)
Thanks for looking and have a blessed day!
