Welcome to the Spring Blog Hop hosted by Top Dog Dies & Echo Park! We hope to fill you up with lots of inspirations today- If you are just joining, you can go to #1 stop for the hop and start from there! If you have already started from there and following along, you should’ve came from Stacey’s blog at Stamping with Stacey. I am the LAST STOP of the hop, and I am so glad you are here! There is a big GIVEAWAY, so make sure to scroll down!
Top Dog Dies release awesome new dies this month, and one of my favorites is this Butterfly Die Set. I thought this goes really well with the new Splendid Sunshine Collection from Echo Park. With minimal effort, you can create different projects filled with bright and fun colors. Aren’t those stripes in the background just so lovely? I think they represent spring perfectly.
The butterfly piece is cut with a thick vellum cardstock. This die is super intricate, so you want to make sure you have a clean cut with enough pressure on your die cutting machine. If your cutting pads are pretty beat up, make sure to add a shim or use metal plate adopter. To help the butterfly stand out more, I added a cure strains of natural twine to add a neutral color to pop out our vellume cardstock.
Final touches were done using one of the sticker sentiment from the paper pack and couple of clear sequins. I didn’t want to do too much to take away the attention from the focal point so I use only small amount of sequins.
Do you like the card I created for you? *wink* I will list full list of supplies so you can get the die and the paper collection from there. If you would like to hop along again, you can go to Top Dog Die’s blog to start one more time! Thank you so much for spending some time with me today!
