I have two cards to share today both in the same style. One is coloured and one is black and white. Both use the Prickley Pear co-ordinating Butterfly die and stamp sets. I coloured the first one by using Faber-Castell Big Brush Markers on my Ranger craft mat and spritzing them with a little water to make pretty watercolours :) Both Cards have been stamped with Black Archival ink and have been cut to fit a standard card size envelope.
You achieve this look by first positioning your die on the folded edge of you card with a portion hanging off. It's best to use some low tack tape ( I use florist tape) to stop the die moving about. Position the card and die on the edge of you cutting plate so that only the portion you want cut is on the plate itself, use the fold as a guide line. I use more tape to hold it exactly in place. Run through your die cut machine ( I have a cuttlebug but it will work in any) and adhere your stamped butterfly using the opening as your guide and embellish to finish.
You can do this with any shaped die and once you get the hang of it it's a quick fun technique to make a card :) Let me know if you would like a video tutorial . . .
