Circle Of Life Butterfly Card And Heart Flower Card - Karen

Another two cards to share again today even though the weekender is now over on Create and Craft lots of you will soon be getting these through your letterboxes.  They really are lovely stamps and the dies, of course, are amazing quality as you have come to expect from Tonic Studios.

For my butterfly card I have layered my 7" x 7" card with turquoise and white, rounding all the corners before adding the Indulgence Tea Party Base Die in turquoise.  The wording is from the Expressions Sentiment die set and was cut in a darker teal colour and white before being shadowed and glued to the card centre.  The butterflies were also cut from Teal and white and each one had the pattern dies cut in the white layer.  They were glued together and stuck in a circle around the sentiment.  I added some organza ribbon around the spine of the card and finished with a matching bow.

My heart card was just an 8" x 8" shop bought card blank, I layered with some Lily of the Valley papers and some bright green behind it with a tiny edge showing.  I layered white onto the front of my card and cut one of the Camellia Layering dies.  I stamped and die cut three of the Floral Hearts, curled them and glued the points to the centre of the flower.  I die cut three with the matching pattern die, curled those and added them in the same way but making sure you could see the previous layer of hearts, the flower centre was cut from the smallest two layers of the Camellia Layering Die set.  I added the Fronde Finesse die and cut the wording out of the matching patterned paper and the bright green, shadowing them to make it stand out.  I added some Nuvo Crystal Drops to the flower centres and the top corner.
