Die Cutting Distress Inks

A Smile is the best thing you can wear

I love that Crafters Companion has released their own line of dies! They are so much fun! In this card, I am using the Butterflies die. I did some dry embossing with the die by simply running them thru my die cutting machine with some tan embossing mats to act as a shim. See the sparkly paper? It’s the candy red shimmering cardstock! GORGEOUS!! And of course, I can’t forget about the sentiment! It’s from this fantastic stamp set, Sentimentals: Verses. I did manage to sneak in one die cut butterfly of course! Colored her up with some distress ink (peacock feathers and pumice stone).
