Butterfly Card With Ink Blended Background

Nigezza Creates aka Gez, Independent Stampin' Up® Demonstrator 


Thank you for visiting my blog, I really do appreciate it. Today I am bringing you the tutorial for the card I made for the Technique Tuesday Blog Hop. This month we looked at die cutting. I am using a die cut and then using the negative image to create a template so another colour can be added  easily.  It is a long time since I used these lovely Butterfly Beauty Dies, I think we get so excited about new products that we neglect once loved sets.
