I can’t believe it’s April already! This year is just flying by! A new month means a new challenge at DS4J! This month is Anything Goes as always but the optional twist is wonderfully springy and is Butterflies!
I got to try some new fun stuff for this card!!
First off I normally never resize digi’s to be smaller then a focal image for a card. But I’ve been seeing a lot of my fellow DT members resizing their digi’s to be more accent pieces or embellishments instead of the focal image and I felt this butterfly challenge really gave me the chance to try it.
So the Digi featured on this card is Art Deco Beauty I cut out 2 of them and simply glued them on. To make the card base part I cut out this free SVG file with my SNC. Last year I took a class from Sparkle N Sprinkle at Scrapbook Expo. It was all about how to use their Tear-iffic tape. Which is one of my favorite dry adhesives and of course I’m out but Scrapbook expo is only 2 weeks away and I’ll be able to stock up. Anyway I got off topic. At this class one of the techniques we learned was to take a border punch and cover it with the tearific tape and then add glitter to it. I took this idea with this deep edge cut card. I used to 2 inch tape to cover the whole thing and glittered both sides of the tape! I just adds a little something!
I hope you’ll come join us this month.
