Butterfly Effect

Hello Nomad friends.  It's time for the fourth challenge over at Let's Squash It!  This month we want you to use any embossing folder and an animal.  Check the post for all the details, da roolz (updated 9th Jan) and more inspiration from my crafty buddy Jo.  Here's my card using Gemini Butterfly Effect embossing folder.

Rather pleased with this.  The folder comes with a matching stencil.  This is the first time I've used it.  These 3D folders are quite fat and I found leaving one of the cutting plates out from my Bigshot sandwich worked perfectly.

I used the stencil and distress inks and stencilled the butterfly and the dot matrix on a card panel.

I embossed with the folder and smeared the embossed texture with Iced Spruce distress ink.  Then I cut the panel using Stamplorations Crazy Double Stitch Rectangle die.

I mounted the stencilled, embossed panel on a dark grey card base.  I cut a piece of the same dark grey card with Stamplorations Aloha word die and then used the stitch rectangle die to cut the chevrons.  


Grab you embossing folders and join the fun.  Don't forget to include an animal on your card.

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
