Winters Butterfly

Monday brings a new post for Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps... 
check out the PPRS Blog for more inspiration. 
 This is simply made... it's all about the perfect sentiment with lovely dies! I used paper from Bo Bunny's Winter Collection: Snow Day. The colors are ivory tones in the DP... so I used Neenah Classic Crest Natural White (ivory in color) as my base and neutral. Bright white paper would have really stood out... and not in a good way.  I used an Embossing Folder to add a little texture in one of the background layers. The beautiful snowflake die is from Impression Obsession. I added tape behind parts of the ivory snowflake so that the cut out pieces actually stayed in, giving it a little different look. All of the cut outs elements and piercing come from the actual die cut I used: Spellbinder's Resplendent Rectangles

 I've been doing pockets recently on the inside. Only putting tape halfway, so the inside panel can be slipped in and out. I added a decorative border die cut as well. 

A little sheer bow to help dress it up! You can see the beautiful detailed edging and piercing from Spellbinder's Resplendent Rectangles in the above picture.
