Butterflies And Poppies

Donna Phelan back again. 

On today's card I will show you how easy it is to add just a wee bit of foiling to your card.  You don't need to have a Toner Printer, or even a laminator, just look for products that incorporate it already.  It's easy........

I started with Foiled Paper! See?  Wasn't that easy?!?! 
Our Dies R Us Store makes it even easier by carrying some beautiful Foiled Paper
in beautiful Prints and Designs. 
Here's a couple by My Mind's Eye and 2 beauties by Pink Paislee.  SO EASY!!! 
The Dies R Us Store also carries many brands of other beautiful Paper Pads.

I also added foiling to my card using my Mini Minc and Foiled Toner Sheets.  I die cut my Memory Box Row of Poppies from Hot Pink Foiled Sheets, which I cropped a bit.  These pretty poppies were then adhered to a layered Tutti Designs Cross Stitch Nesting Rectangles, which were backed with Fun Foam to add dimension. 

I used Spellbinders Standard and Scallop Circle dies to stamp my sweet little butterfly on.  Image stamped with Raven Black ink and colored with Copic Markers.
  Hidden beneath that is a small Tutti Designs Nesting Stitched Banners
with Rhinestone accent.  
I layered the Dies R Us Butterfly #2 Set and added another Rhinestone accent,  this particular set is no longer available, although we have many, many beautiful Butterfly Dies to choose from.  

Pop Dot.
Fun Foam.
Pink Ribbon. 

Love the Foiled Accents and all of that dimension!

Here's what I used:

Memory Box - Dies - Row of Poppies

Tutti Designs - Cross Stitch Nesting Rectangles

Tutti Designs - Dies - Nesting Stitched Banners
