Papertrey MIM #56 Die cutting partial images









Hello! I am participating in Papertrey's Make it Monday challenge this week. Betsy Veldman did a video here on how to die cut only part of a die. The butterflies in Beautiful Butterflies immediately came to my mind. I had a little trouble with the right side of the butterfly almost cutting through, but due to the thickness of PTI cardstock, it just made an indentation. So with no further ado, here is my card for the challenge.

I used PTI cardstock, Beautiful Butterflies stamp set, Aqua Mist, Simply Chartreuse, Spring Moss and Spring Rain inks. Thanks for looking!

  2. What a pretty card. I like how all the butterflies look like they are all flying in the same direction, like a giant swarm of loveliness.
