Hi everyone! It’s Lindsay Adreon, from Crafting While Caffeinated Blog & YouTube Channel, here with you today. I am super excited to be guest designing today with Kat Scrappiness! This past release, the new Butterfly Backdrop die was release and when I seen it, I had so many different ideas for it I couldn’t choose just one, so I picked three to share with you today! Be sure to watch the video tutorial below to see three different ideas and techniques you can use with the new Butterfly Backdrop Die from Kat Scrappiness!
My first card is definitely the most shiny of the three! I love using glitter and making a full glittered background with this die is easier than you might think! Be sure to watch the video above for all the details. But I did want to tone it down just a touch so I added a border to the top and bottom of the card using the new Zig Zag Border dies. I also added a few Brown Jewels from Kat Scrappiness to give this card a few finishing touches!
My second card is super easy and can be completely customized to fit your card recipient or card making style. I started by die cutting a piece of heavy weight white card stock and kept both pieces. Behind the large piece I added an ink blended panel and then popped up the little butterflies back over the panel. I did add a little fold to the butterflies wings so they would have a lot of dimension!
For my final card, I used the die cut as a stencil! This is one of my favorite ways to use large background dies like this. And because this card was so simple, I wanted to add a little more interest by making a shaped card base. I used the new Zig Zag Rectangle Die Set from Kat Scrappiness to create the card base. Be sure to watch the video above to see how easy it is to use the dies to create fun shaped card bases!
I hope you all enjoyed the three different ideas and techniques I shared today to use with the Kat Scrappiness Butterfly Backdrop Die! I’ve listed and linked all of the Kat Scrappiness products I used on each of my projects down below. Thank you for letting me spend a bit of time with you today! Happy Crafting!!
