Two Cool Cards with Radial Butterflies Cover Die

 Hello Altenew friend! 

It's my turn to share project(s) over Altenew Card Blog. This time, I am fluttering by with two projects featuring Radial Butterflies Cover Die. I am excited to show you how I only die cut once to create two very different butterfly cards! Let's start with Card #1.

**All products (highlighted in bold) used are listed at the end of this post**

 Important: Before I started, I adhered the Classic Crest Solar White 80 Lb card stock to the Masking Paper. This will give the entire sheet with the adhesive backing.

 I then ink-blended the background by using the Small Ink-Blending Brushes. Starting from the top, I applied Pink Diamond, Citrus Burst, Mountain Mist and finished it off with Magenta. I then die cut Radial Butterflies Cover Die and saved all the butterflies for my next card. I then die cut Fancy Celebrate Die with Gilded Ombre Washi Tape.

 For the embellishments, I also die cut the Radial Butterflies Cover Die with Gilded Ombre Washi Tape. This ensured that the entire card has a cohesive look.Altenew-Radial Butterflies Cover Die-Fancy Celebrate Die-003

 Remember that I saved all the extra butteries from the die-cutting?  Thanks to the Masking Paper, I could easily position them in a cascading fashion. I then did some masking and did more ink-blending.

 This time,  I used nearly the same colors with a few more bold colors such as Coral Berry , Maple Yellow and Azurite.

 Once I finished ink-blending, I peeled off the butterflies and re-positioned them around the negative white space. I managed to stamp "thanks" ( Tall Alpha Stamp Set)  without any issue because the butterflies are can be moved around. For the final touches, I added a few Satin White Sequins.  I absolutely love cards with a bit of movement.

Aren't Cover Dies so fun and versatile? I hope this gives you an extra idea on using Radial Butterflies Cover Die.  You can definitely try out with other cover dies such as Radial Hearts and Radial Stars

I like how the thanks butterflies look like they just came off the page and took to flight.
