Big Hugs

I am Barbara Campbell, and I am so very happy to tell you that I am joining the team, at Dies R Us!  This is my first post, and a new adventure for me.  Our new team will be bringing you some  inspiration every day.  Stay tuned, and follow the blog! Being part of the design team makes me smile all day long.
I am sharing with you, a card that I made for someone that needs a Big Hug.

I started with an Ivory,  A2 base and added another panel of Ivory just a 1/4 inch smaller than the base.  Next I die cut the window with Memory Box Distressed Windham Collage.  I did place a piece of acetate behind the window. (This would make a great shaker card) to give it dimension, I put a panel of fun foam under that. Then I simply die cut the Poppy Stamps, Stitched Pumpkin Leaves and Emelia Butterfly Trio along with the Devyn Butterfly Trio.  Note: I used vellum for the solid part of the butterfly. I colored the large butterfly, on the back with a Copic BG75,  and added some liquid pearls too.  The leaves were cut from sage green paper, and the edges were swiped with ink for some texture.
Here is what I used:
Memory Box - Dies - Open Studio - Distressed Windham Collage

 Poppystamps - Dies - Emelia Butterfly Trio

      Poppystamps - Dies - Devyn Butterfly Trio

I sure am going to have fun with these dies for the autumn season.
