This month the team is creating with anything that flutters. Today I chose butterflies because I AM READY FOR SPRING. We have about 10 feet of snow here in Western Montana and I am ready for some window open weather!!
I can't believe that I haven't tried this before, but today I used stencils with velvet paper in my die cutting machine. I LOVE THE RESULTS!!! I dry embossed the velvet paper with same way that I would have embossed regular paper. My "embossing sandwich" is multi layer platform, stencil, paper, rubber embossing mat, TWO acrylic cutting plates. I put the TWO cutting mats on last, so that I don't accidentally bend my stencil.
I used a new release stencil from Dreamweaver Crusade LX7025:
I then went on to use the Double Glitter Technique on two different DW Butterfly Stencils:
When I was done with the Double Glitter Technique, I cut my designs out and adhered them to my background in a 3D manner.
Obviously I wouldn't be able to mail this card in a traditional envelope, it could be mailed in one of those pizza box mailers, if you know what I am talking about.
I decided I was so happy with my creation, I put a frame behind it and placed in on my shelf in my craft studio/office.
I never make things for myself and all day I have been looking at this and love it more and more!!
