Welcome to the The Twinery and Poppy Stamps Blog Hop! Today is day one of a three day hop so be sure to visit either The Twinery blog or Poppystamps blog again on Friday and Saturday for more great inspiration. You should have arrived here via Melyssa's blog, if not, be sure to head over to The Twinery's blog and work your way here.
I created two cards to share with you today; Thinking of You using the butterfly and it's shadow as well as the flowers above the sentiment from Poppystamps along with The Twinery twine and more general, encouragement card with just the butterfly and Twinery twine.
I double cut the flower border, once in pink and once in green. I fussy cut the pink cardstock leaving me with a handful of flowers that I then glued on top of the green "unscathed" cut. The butterfly is made up of a vellum layer from the "shadow die, the pink detail cut butterfly die and twine for the "trail" and antennae.
I really love the clean cuts of Poppystamp dies! They are so details yet the cut comes away so cleanly from the die!
