"Smile" using lots of dies and layers

Hi's Bev here today.  How are you? This DT project for Dies R Us showcases a Smile card made using lots of die cuts and super fun layers for depth and dimension. 

Supply List:
Machine/ tools: Big Shot Express,
Other:  BFS Amber & Apricot Colletion, Cardstock, card base/ envelope, Tim Holtz distress Ink, gel dots

I started with a honeycomb die cut matted background. Pops the die cut for sure.

I then cut the butterfly spectacle and using my cutter trimmed to an even box shape.


I then matted the butterfly and added a border accent to the base piece. I inked alot of pieces for depth and dimension.

I then put the 2 panels together giving lots of layers. Using the dark and light shades makes even pop and looks perfect.

I die cut "Smile" and glued it down using ScraPerfect Best Ever Glue. 

I added some gel dots for accents.

Here are some close up shots.
