Hello again. Hope you all enjoyed a wonderful weekend. I've got a little something special to share with you today using some Sizzix dies I love, love, love. I'm feeling like spring and can feel it as pretty pastels find their way into my projects, home decor, oh, and candy jar....Easter candy is my fave :). Dove peanut butter eggs or Sees chocolates for me, please, how about you?
I started with the Sizzix Bigz Button Card Die w/ Textured Impression. After die cutting the card and adding texture using the embossing folder, I added distressing with ink, and then added a bit of stamping in the upper and lower corners. I then used the Sizzix Sizzlits Bow-Tied Decorative Strip die and created a double layer of paper bows to adhere at the top of my button card. Next came layers of fabric and trim cut using the Sizzix 3-D Fringed Flower die and then topped my flower with buttons cut from the Button Card die.
Lastly, I finished my button card with a Tim Holtz key and added some scallops and trim at the bottom of my card using Melissa Frances pink crocheted trim layered under a die cut using the Vintage Lace Decorative Strip die.
My die cut machine and dies are some of my most favorite things to have on hand and use just as often as I can. I love to transform bits of paper to suit my style and tastes, and dies let you do just that.
Enjoy the rest of your Monday and thanks for your visit.
